I think it is the McDonalds. Sometimes I don't react to foods till the next day. The pain is probably from all the grease. I wouldn't dare eat any fast food because I always end up the same way and usually end up having explosive D along with the horrible cramping. Sorry I know it can be sooo painful.

you never know but it's probably not the best thing.

i actually have a hard time no matter what i eat if i haven't eaten anything in a long time. meaning you may want to try and at least snack throughout the day if you can't have an actual meal until dinnertime. i have to have frequent snacks.

sorry you're feeling so lousy, hope it passes soon.

Here, read this link...

 

http://www.drhoffman.com/page.cfm/170?Template=Default_Print

 

This is a blurb from it, but I suggest reading the whole article...

 

Why should inflammatory bowel diseases be on the upswing? There are many theories but conventional medicine has not yet satisfactorily answered the question. Many gastroenterologists choose not to believe it, but dietary factors clearly play a role. For example, Swedish researchers have found that people who eat at fast food restaurants regularly and who eat too much sugar may increase their risk of Crohn's disease. Researchers from the Karolinska Institute in Stockholm interviewed 152 people with Crohn's disease, 145 with ulcerative colitis and 305 healthy people about their eating habits in the five previous years. Those who ate fast food at least two times a week were 3.4 times more likely to develop Crohn's disease and 3.9 times more likely to develop ulcerative colitis, according to a recent issue of the Journal of Epidemiology. Fast foods in the Swedish study consisted of hamburger or hot dogs with mustard and catchup plus fresh fries or cream potatoes and soft drinks. It was also noted that those who ate more than 55 grams of sugar per day were 2.6 times more likely to develop Crohn's disease. Not surprisingly, an American expert in gastroenterology attempted to refute this study. He contended that IBD sufferers probably started eating the high sugar/high calorie foods in an effort to gain weight and chose foods low in fiber to reduce their diarrhea.

I call it McDonalds stomach, when I have it once a year and then am in pain.

Every now and then if I eat something and it does not agree w/me I'll wake up at 2am w/stomach pains and diarreah and then be ok. Happens a few times a year.

Memmie, funny you should mention that...A few weeks ago my husband was out of town for the week and on my way home from work, I thought, "I think I will stop and get me a BigMac"...I normally don't eat at McD's alot...The times I eat there are few and far between, but for some reason it sounded good to me at the time...Anyway, I got one, and not long after I ate it, I got so sick to my stomach...I didn't throw up or anything, but I kept feeling like I was going to...It lasted for several hours and I had chills like I had a fever...I just went to bed and went to sleep and when I woke up in the middle of the night, I felt fine, but I told my husband that was the LAST BigMac I will ever eat...

I've always paid for my rare trips to McDonald's with D. and cramping, even before UC. Interestingly, I can eat their breakfast biscuits without problems, but if I eat a Big Mac or a Quarter Pounder, I know there's a price I'll pay.

I know alot of people that don't even have a bowel disease and can't eat McDonalds or many other fast-food burger joints without getting a bad stomach...that should speak volumes in itself.
