For a few weeks now I have been eating morning summit almond cereal. Usually after dinner. I’ve been noticing an increase of burping and gas and a feeling like water and food isn’t going all the way down to my stomach after eating and the rest of … See More
the next day. Feeling really bloated and full to the point of uncomfortable. I started to take lactaid for the milk digestion. Thinking it’s the milk. The day before yesterday I got sick to my stomach and no food or liquid stayed down. Diarrhea and vomiting dehydration lead to leg cramps and fatigue. So I fasted for over 24 hours. Today I had one all meat meal. Plain burger patty and bratwurst. A few hours later I had a bowl of morning summit almond cereal and shortly after that I started feeling gassy and bloated again. Like food didn’t make it down to my belly and it’s stuck where my esophagus and stomach meet. Painful and feeling as if it’s making my tummy bloat more as the night goes on. I’m tossing and turning and burping and farting and diarrhea came back. WTH. I’m not blaming the yesterdays stomach sickness on the morning summit cereal but I am concerned that it’s having a negative effect on my digestion and causing the cramping bloating and gas in my stomach. I was concerned I had a really big problem but after reading other folks concerns after eating this cereal I’m convinced it’s the cereal as it’s the only new thing that I’ve added to my diet lately. I will report back after tomorrow and I fast again to release this pressure and hopefully gain my normal digestion back. I’d like to note: I’m 42yo 5’5” tall with 15% body fat. I weight 160lbs. Exercise regularly and I have no known allergies. My wife on the other hand ate some with me and she seems to be doing fine. Purchased at Costco, and this box I brand new..

That doesnt sound like food poisoning. It seems more like you have had an allergic reaction.

user-xrmcz471

Hi, thanks for your comment. TIP: some symptoms of food poisoning can resemble those of an allergic reaction. Both conditions can cause symptoms such as nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, and abdominal pain. However, food poisoning is caused by consuming food contaminated with harmful pathogens, while food allergies are a result of the body's immune system reacting to a food it mistakenly identifies as harmful.
