  1. Thanks Lisa, I did or do now know the banana problem, but never knew of possible problems with sugar. Do you think i should not have any gluten and sugar, or try gluten again but leave out sugars. Then see how I feel. Not sure how to tackle this weird new issue. Thanks again!
  2. Hello! My name is Jim and I am 46 years old. My fitness level is above average ( I race mountain bikes and train 7 days a week), but on July 1st, 2012, after a training ride, I came home and had lunch. Later that day I had excruciating abdominal pain. The next day it felt a little better but I went to my family practice doc. He just said it could have been an adverse reaction to a sports drink I used the previous day. On July 4th, my stomach was still sore. I didnt eat that day until dinner time. I ate one banana, and that excruciating pain came back, so I went to the ER. They did a CT scan and blood work. Everything came back normal. They put me on a proton pump inhibitor but are started to get really bad anxiety from it, and my stomach didnt feel any better. I went back to my family practice doc a few days later and they did a stool test. That was normal also. That night, guess what I ate? Yes a banana. And yep, I ended up back at the ER Fast forward to September. I finally got to see a Gastro doc. Of course he wanted me to take another type of PPI. I said no. So I started taking Zantac. Fast forward to November. I have been eating crackers, sweet potatoes, green beans, boiled chicken, toast, and occasionally some whit rice. Still taking Zantac. I still have some abdominal pain and now more anxiety. A week ago I stopped the Zantac, and the anxiety is way better. Still have some stomach pain. Three days ago I stopped eating gluten. My stomach did feel better the next day. Still sore but not as bad. The anxiety is even better. Today I ate chicken, lettuce and cucumber salad with olive oil, rice vinegar, and a splash of lemon juice. Oh I forgot, I had a slice of apple, and a small slice of banana this morning. Felt a little anxiety and of course a bit of stomach upset. So for a snack before my training ride, guess what I tried again? A whole freaking banana. And guess what? Yeah duh you already know the answer. First, thanks for reading this novel i just wrote, and second, anyone have any opinions on this? Is it a fructose problem, a gluten problem, gastritis, what???? Any thoughts would be most appreciated because this sucks! Thanks!
