    Morning all.

    I have been on SW for about 5/6 weeks.

    Since about 5pm monday night I have had a really weird tummy ache.

    It feels like bad hunger pains (although doesn't go away after a meal), mixed in with pains in my stomach (brief shooting pains). I haven't got any other symptoms and it seems to get worse if I excercise - I managed 20 minutes on my excercise bike last night as I thought I was feeling better, but then I was nearly sick, so I have given up on the excercise.

    I was going to go to the dr. today but I felt 100% better when I woke up, but I am getting the stomach cramps again and now it is too late to get an appointment at the doctors.

    Anyone have any ideas?

    Hiya, I am no doctor but it sounds like trapped wind. When I was pregnant with my first child I got wind like how you describe. I went to the hospital panicking as it got quite bad one night and they said it was just trapped wind lets just say I made a quick exit with a very red face. I still get it now from time to time especially when I have drank diet fizzy drinks. Try some gripe water it works wonders. If it stays after that then see your doctor.

    Good luck.

    Cool I hope thats all it is, although 3 days later I am still suffering!!! I am going to give it untill the morning then go the dr's!

    Whats gripe water and where do you get it from? I was thinking about getting some peppermint tea.

    You can get gripe water from any chemists boots or tesco and superdrug. It helps get rid of the wind. You usually give it to babies but adults can use it aswell.

    Hello I am new to this thread but thought I would mention that I get this if I eat quorn stuff. Never suffered before but the past 2/3 weeks each time I eat quorn I get terrible stomach cramps.

    Just a thought?

    Well I went to the Dr's yesterday, and he thinks its nothing serious, and that I probably had a bug/infection, and what I was feeling was my body fightin it.

    I have felt much better for the last 2 days.
