I recently, within the past 2 years, became incredibly sensitive to corn. I've been through 4 GI doctors, 3 Primary doctors and 2 or 3 neurology doctors and multiple E.R trips trying to find out what's wrong. Before I start looking for better doctors and entertain the idea of an allergist, I wanted to know what other people's symptoms tend to be.
I have excruciating abdominal pain, on a scale of 1-10, its definitely a 10 and could be more. Typically it's onset timing depends on how much I ate. I learned last year that if I opt out of going to the E.R for help, I can spend up to 16 hours in excruciating pain. I get really nauseous as well.
This all has caused me to give up my favorite foods, and eat more organic to avoid corn additives in food and drink.
No one has been able to help me and I know absolutely no one with a reaction like this.
Please help

There are many corn allergic people who experience similar reactions to yours from ingesting corn. Someone on another corn allergy forum was recently diagnosed with diverticulitis of the intestines (very, very painful) which is known to be caused by food allergies. Their symptoms disappear when corn is avoided.

Others complain of IBS, back pain, side pain, bloating, heaviness in the chest and the list goes on and on.
