I started having strange symptoms after I ate...I would go out to eat and immediatly would have gas cramps and bloating and would have to go the bathroom...Mostly after eating like Pizza, Fries, Rice and like chocolate sweets. My stools were looser, but not totally diarriah. I had Vertigo and Severe Rhinitis, but wasnt sure what was causing the allergy so I took an allergy test for only seasonal allergy causes (no food allergy tests) such as molds and cats and stuff but I was only slightly allergic to cats and mold so my doctor put me on Allegra D...Well it Helped but I began to get Constipated! BAD! So I took a stool softener and that helped but now I am Constantly Gassy, Bloated, and crampy...mostly ranging from my upper Abdomin and Lower abdomin. Everytime I eat Anything I feel Full and over stuffed and bloated but I dont have to go to the bathroom. I have severe stress and anxiety because I am a germ freak and all this medical stuff is making me crazy! Is it Allergy? Stress? Anxiety? or is there something REALLY WRONG!! HELP!!!!

  • I am not sure if this helps but here it goes.For the last week being in bed because I had so many pain in my stomach and belly, belly make noises and sharp pain in the stomach. Was so constipated anything to go to bathroom and nothing, felt depressed and almost called doctor to make appointment and did think that I had cancer or whatever until I ran to this site.Not sure if anybody take this but is worth a try.http://splendasickness.blogspot.com/2006/03/abdominal-pain-cramping.htmlSplenda was the motive of it all and I am so happy that today I am up and running and doing things that I was not able any longer.Please all, take a look, I have no pain any longer.

  • I had those symptions for a year....Have your doctor order a HIDA test for gall bladder function. It took my doctors a year to get to that point after CAT scans, ultrasounds, colonscopy, endiscope (stomach camera) trying to diagnose my abdominal pain. It was gall bladder disease (not gall stones). It grows a flesh inside the gall bladder that slowly fills it up and prevent it from functioning. Gallstones can be seen by CAT scan, but the flesh of the disease can't. So finally the gall bladder function test HIDA proved that it was not operating correctly. Check out the possibility!I started having strange symptoms after I ate...I would go out to eat and immediatly would have gas cramps and bloating and would have to go the bathroom...Mostly after eating like Pizza, Fries, Rice and like chocolate sweets.
