| | Complete intolerance to spicy food.
Heres the background: when I was around 15 I had a lot of stomach problems, my doctor diagnosed me with irritable bowel syndrome and gave me buscopan. With that and 6 months of very healthy eating I managed to get over it and while I never had the strongest stomach, I didnt have any more serious problems eating what ever I wanted (within reason).
Over the last few years I always enjoyed a lot of spicy food, nothing crazy but still.. but then I spent a few months living in a country whos food is pretty much all spicy, and during that time started to have problems which 1 year later I still have every time I eat even a mildly spicy dish. I thought I could wait it out, avoid spicy food and Id get better but like I said, 1 year and still no better. Is there anything I can do about this? I really love spicy food, and its not always possible to completely avoid but basically when ever I eat it, around 12 hours later I will start getting serious discomfort and need to run to the toilet.
Any help much appreciated!
