I can notstand the smell or flavor of black licorice...CT scan once with drinking the licorice flavored drink and tossing it up all over the hospital!!!
But, aside from that I love cherry licorice. problem is it really attacks my guts. I feel worse whenever I eat it. of course all those things that are supposed to "settle" your stomach bother me - ginger, licorice etc.
Dx'd '90 (emergency rupture), symptoms ignored long before that, '03 fistulas and bad flagyl reactions, B12 weekly, Pentasa [until I surrender to the bigger meds]
I'm riding on the escalator of life....
