Ask Doctor: Stomach Ache⚕️

  |   Dutadoctor

+254...2 doctor I always have stomach aches but whenever I get tested they find no problem with my stomach what do you think might be the problem because its normally triggered by me eating beans and corn⚕️

The commonest reason for your problem would be that corn and beans are “gassy foods”. These foods contain complex carbohydrates like starch and raffinose etc, which release gas during the process of digestion.This gas can cause bloating of the stomach and intestines leading to pain.

The other reason for your problem could be that you are allergic to beans and corn. The allergic reaction in your stomach and intestines can cause pain.

Whatever be the reason for your pain, the simplest treatment is to avoid eating beans and corn. There are other alternatives available to beans and corn, which may not cause you any problems.
