I haven't posted in this particular part of HW before, but I have been having stomach issues and just read this thread and felt like responding. Gabby04, I had three similar incidences with raw broccoli, believe it or not. Ate it, started feeling a little queasy after I ate it, burning in the stomach started, then woke up in the middle of the night, felt severe burning (to the point where I was crying) in the middle of my stomach, then started throwing up. For a few days after I couldn't keep down anything but miso soup! I've never had a reaction that severe to anything else (so now I just don't go anywhere near broccoli!), but I've also had pretty bad episodes of burping and burning pain in my stomach, accompanied or followed by diarrhea. My GI said it was acid reflux, and acid reflux medicines did seem to help it (and I had an upper endoscopy that confirmed the acid reflux diagnosis). I never really got an answer on the broccoli/vomiting thing, but the burning pain, burping, and diarrhea for me definitely seemed to be caused by acid reflux.
Although now I think I've got SIBO going on (I had it in the winter and had similar symptoms), which is why I came on this forum in the first place...So back to searching for threads about SIBO. Good luck, Gabby04...Maybe it's worth trying the acid medicine?
