Hello! I hope I have posted this in the proper place- if not, someone please point me in the right direction.....
I have a rather embarrassing problem that just started recently-- when I eat pasta (the white kind, not high fiber or whole wheat) such as macaroni, spaghetti, etc., I am plagued with terrible gas and bloating and stomach pain that lasts several hours.
I am 53 years old and pasta has been one of my lifelong favorite foods, but NOT anymore!!! Does anyone have a clue as to why this would come on so suddenly, after no prior problems? No other food bothers me-- only pasta. I have had problems with IBS in the past, but that has never been triggered by pasta-- mostly greasy and/or spicy foods. I am eating a healthy diet, adequate fiber intake, and have been successful in cutting out junk food. Any help would be greatly appreciated!
