Stomach Pains & Diet colas?


I was wondering if anyone has found that cutting out diet cola drinks has caused stomach pain to happen less often...

I know that "they" say that sodas aren't generally good for you. I have about at least 2 8 ozs a day of carbonated drink....and I noticed that latey I've been getting pains in my stomach (not my colon--I do have ibs so I know the differene now, Unfortunately) and sometimes the pains wake me up in the middle of the night....I don't know if it's just nerves (possibly due to election and this yuck weather we are experiencing right now), but I don't really think it's an ulcer. But it's just a knotted sore sick pain--kind of like you've been kicked or punched in the gut real hard. Has anyone else experienced these types of pains and then found that cutting out the carbonated drink helped?

Any info would be appreciated!

Re: Stomach Pains & Diet colas?

I can't drink diet pepsi or diet coke without getting stomach pains. It usually sends me running to the bathroom. A great laxative. I diet soda and a cig in the

Anyhow, just sharing. You are right though...sodas are not the healthiest thing to drink but I drink them daily. I drink hansens though which don't upset my stomach at all.

Change sodas!

I can drink all diet sodas without any problem, but for some reason, only Diet Pepsi disagrees with me - I get stomach pain from it, but I still drink it because I love Diet Pepsi. ^-^

But maybe you have an intolerance to the aspartame, the artificial sweetener in diet sodas. I probably do, but that isn't enough to keep me from the soda.

If it contains Aspartane, then it can cause the stomach pains. You bet!!!
