This is for the fiber veterans.  You know the horrible abdominal pain you get when you take too much fiber?  I was bumping up my dosage.  I'm either very fiber sensitive or this pure acacia is mean stuff, but is there any way to ease the pain besides drinking tons of water?  Foods or something?  Thanks

Jeff, You are most likely getting the pain from the extra gas that is caused by too much fiber/introducing fiber. You will want to take some gas-x if you have some handy.

That's why I love this site - 9 minutes and I got answers.  I should have known that, I just forgot because the pain is different than typical IBS gas/bloating pain, ya know?  Phazyme is in hand.  Thanks.

Jeff, you poor guy. When I did that I had major D and cramps for most of the night. AND, I felt like do-do the next day. Good luck! Drink tea and take Gas-X (like dbab mentioned).
