When did you eat before bed? What did you have? Did the pain just go away or did you eat or drink something and it went away?

Little update. Woke up this morning with a really achey stomach. My upper mid abdominal area fealty sore. Is this the stomach area ? I'm now starting to feel afraid to eat veggies and fruits if it's going to cause me harm. Pain went away a few hours after I woke up

I eat some fruits pretty late actually ... some pineapples and watermelon. I woke up with the pain at 7am. Around 9am it had already gotten much better. I then got home (left work) and drank some chamomile tea and 2 pieces of toast with margarine. Now I feel about 95% good.

I think your stomach pain is probably from gas still. Changing your diet that drastically that fast will probably do that! Maybe ease off a little with the fruits & veggies -- just a little -- and slowly increase them again? I'm not an expert, but I would say that changing your diet like you did, the gas could probably last several weeks until your body fully adjusts. It's a huge change & it takes time.

I've been a vegetarian for almost 20 years & there are still certain foods that trigger stomach issues for me (gas mostly). It really depends on how your system handles things, I think. I hope you feel better!

I agree with this. It takes quite a bit of time for your body to adjust.

Specifically what fruits and vegetables? Some are higher in fructans, some in polyols... Also fruit is sugar (natural fructose) and increasing fiber too fast will cause gas and bloat. Then there is also the cruciferous factor... Are you cooking them, are they canned or fresh, or do you eat them raw? What do you add to them?

Sounds like you have FODMAP intolerances. Watermelon is a big no no. So are apples, garlic, onions, artichokes.

Most of what I eat (veggies) are raw. I was eating lots of carrots, celery, bell peppers, mushrooms. I was also eating a large salad as well with lots of tomatoes. Fruits .. mainly raspberries, strawberries, pineapple and watermelon.

I am feeling better today, but still not 100% ... more like 95%.

You need to understand that I went from barely ever eating any vegetables and fruits to a veggie/fruit only diet. After 2 days I started getting my stomach pain. Anymore comments would be greatly appreciated !

I'm not too familiar with it, but I know there are people who swear by a low FODMAP diet for digestion issues. There's tons of info online about what foods to avoid. You can always try cutting out these foods to see if it makes any difference. I would also suggest lightly cooking your veggies. It seems to make them a little easier to digest.
