I am having some issues with beef. It’s been an ongoing issue for about 6 months or so. I would have sudden attacks of painful cramping and diarrhea. I tend to stay bloated and have some days where i can’t get far from the toilet, but that is my norm and they called it IBS. These attacks are different. Sudden and nasty painful. I had an epiphany one day after eating a large burger and not making it too far before one hit. It had to be red meat. I normally do not eat a lot of it at once, so it didn’t occur to me what it was.

I started paying attention to it and red meat is definitely the problem. I did a test run and stopped eating it for two weeks. Ate a few chunks of hamburger in hamburger helper tonight and didn’t make it 30 minutes. My family doesn’t think it could be food related at all since it happens so fast. No way it has gone through my stomach when an attack hits.

Can an intolerance cause a reaction that quickly?
Thanks everyone!

By chance do you still have your gallbladder?

Yes, I do. I’ve never given that any thought.

Red meat & anything fatty was really bad for me. My upper GI was normal, however, when they did the HIDA Scan it showed my gallbladder was not functioning right. You may want to have your checked. Whatever you do, insist on the HIDA Scan also.

Take care.

I made an appt with my primary care doc for a GI referral. Going to see if he can set up that test in the meantime. Thanks!
