Spasms in gut

Posted , 3 users are following.

I am wheat, dairy and fructose intolerant and have been on the Fodmap diet for over a year now.  In January I had a stomach bug lasting 24 hours followed by my gut going into a spasm two hours after a meal.  Last week I experienced cramping pains for two days and now experiencing the same spasm in my gut. I see a gastroenterologist and a dietician at my local hospital.  I am taking Ensure Plus milk drink to help me gain weight.

    You said you're intolerant to dairy yet ensure is made of milk?

    Not sure if Ensure includes milk powder as we don't get it here in the UK.  But we can get drinks like Ensure, in powder form.  I make mine up with unsweetened almond milk, or light soya milk.  As you are dairy intolerant, switching milks might help.

      Ensure plus drinks are gluten and lactose free, I have been prescribed these by my dietitian. I am wheat, lactose and fructose intolerant and have been for over 15 years and am following a Fodmap diet.

      Sorry - Perhaps it's time to ask one of your health care specialists as you seem to follow a very healthy diet. I am gluten intolerant and follow a GF, very low fat and low dairy diet - hence my use of of dairy substitutes.  It could just be an old fashioned tummy bug rumbling on.  When I had gastroenteritis it was a good week before I could keep food down, and about a month before I felt normal again.  Best wishes

    Yes these spasms have been on and off since I was sick once 5 weeks ago.  My gut is very sensitive to everything, even medication. Thanks
