High fructose and bowel pain

02/11/2009

Question:

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?

Answer:

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.
