High fructose and bowel pain
I believe high fructose corn syrup is the cause of my bowel pain. I think it causes bowel expansion about 6 hours after eating it. This is not the same as beans. I think my bowel balloons up and then either spasms out or gets flaccid and doesnt` move at all. I get weak, have back and leg pain and get relief by farting, BM, or enema. Are other persons affected like this?
Thank you for visiting NetWellness. This question would be better answered in the Digestive Disorders topic. Please look in that topic for an answer to your question.
