Last Thursday, I ate some microwave popcorn in the afternoon. I did not each much dinner because I was feeling ill. By 7 PM, I had severe cramping, with waves of pain crashing one after another. By 11 PM I was vomiting. I was still up with cramping through the night, but it was not as severe. I survived and felt better within a couple days.
Fast forward to yesterday. At a football game, I ate some of DD1's popcorn. Within a few hours, I started cramping badly (more generalized pain, not the waves like the prior week) followed by severe diarrhea. I was up past 3:30 AM with bad cramping at which time I took an Ambien and finally got some sleep. I am still not feeling well today.
Even though I LOVE popcorn, I cannot imagine eating it any time soon due to the association. Can popcorn cause these symptoms or is it just a strange coincidence? Any other thoughts as to what is wrong? I do not have time to be sick.
