Is it possible that I'm allergic to fresh pineapple? Several times over the last year or so I've eaten fresh pineapple, and then come down with a horrendous stomachache. Sure enough, I had some tonight and within an hour my stomach is killing me and I feel bloated. I love the stuff, but not if it's going to do this to me. Pineapple and pineapple juice are often recommended to alleviate stomach problems - I seem to be just the opposite. Am I allergic to the bromelain in it? Does anyone else have this problem? I don't show any other signs (rash, etc.). Aaaggghhh!
