Advice/opinions needed! I can't find an answer via google (my #1 reference tool).
Drinking limeade, either homemade or from concentrate, causes me to have intense stomach pain. I love it but try to avoid it for this reason.
Last night at a wedding reception, I had what I thought was lemonade. When we had to leave early because I was in pain, I realized there were limes floating in the drink and it didn't taste like straight lemonade. Aha! That's why I'm miserable!
Does anyone know why I have this reaction? I have no problem with other citrus juices.
In case of any possible correlation, my only other self-diagnosed food intolerances are Splenda and high quantities of sugar. I have been diagnosed with gout and I have unofficially been diagnosed with hypoglycemia. When I officially tested for hypoglycemia they couldn't find it, but I have the symptoms and it goes up and down in severity based on how I'm eating in general and how stressed I am. When I was on the pill it was extremely hard to control. My childhood doctor said I had a small pancreas.
Now that you know way more than you wanted to know about my health issues, you can stop reading and start thinking. :)
