Tummy pains when eating certain foods
I seem to get the most painful tummy aches when i eat foods like corn, pronutro, popcorn. This can be triggered by certain spices aswell. Its starts off with a light burning and then over to the most incredible pain. The only relieve a get is when i throw up it kinda feels like its massaging the painful area. I would like to know what the cause it and if it is something to address.

Hi Sash
You may have an inflamed gastric lining of the stomach ( especially as you describe the pain as burning). Try using Zantac 75 and Mucaine but if it does not clear up, you need to see a doctor to book a gastroscopy (
