I don't seem to have problems at all with popcorn but if I eat a salad or an unpeeled apple I'm constantly running to the restroom. It's funny how different we all are. My disease is located in my large intestines and I've never had the sharp pains in my guts. Just going to the bathroom alot. But the deterioration of my colon over many years of living with the disease (I was told it was IBS) ended me up in the hospital because of really bad damage. I'm thinking it all depends on the
location of inflammation.
