Ok, this sounds silly or maybe I'm being overly sensitive to some symptoms...

But, I've noticed lately that after I eat chocolate my stomach, not my gut.. but my actual stomach swells up and I look pregnant. It's not painful just uncomfortable. I know that a lot of us can't really tolerate chocolates and dairy very well.. but does any one know why that happens? Just curious.

What type of chocolate? We used to have a candy bowl at work and I would have a few chocolates in the afternoons on the days that I work. Well I noticed that I was always not feeling so well afterward. It was milk chocolate. I can tolerate a really dark chocolate, especially a very good quality, but a milk chocolate, especially a cheaper one does me in. I'm convinced its the milk. You might try some lactose pills before eating chocolate or try eating a darker version, as an experiment.

Ya, that's what I was thinking too!! It's milk chocolate that does it to me and then I'm just sick the rest of the day. I guess one day when I'm feeling saucy I'll try it out. lol

I get very bloated too -- but haven't linked it to chocolate, yet. It's actually one of my least favorite CD symptoms (not that I have a favorite) and my GI isn't that interested. I guess it's something you just have to minimize by avoiding those certain foods!
