JJ- See an allergist who tests for food allergies. They can test you in a more scientific, controlled environment to see what is truly triggering your "stomach problems." Using yourself as a guinea pig is not the answer. Besides finding the cause for your problems, there is a good chance that the doctor can provide a cure for your problem. This sounds like a fairly new ailment since you refer to not being able to give up chocolate. Perhaps it is a combination of a new medication and chocolate or something overlooked. That's why you need a professional to look into this if you are determined to keep your chocolate. I know I would!!!
