Back and abdominal pain after eating certain fruits, vegetables. What's the problem ?

After eating certain fruits and vegtables (raw carrots, corn on the cob, blueberries, etc) I sometimes have back pain (in the middle right wear my bra strap is ) and upper abdominal pain . It will go straight from my middle back to the middle front. I also have a gas build up and it causes me to burp. It is quite painful and will last for a few hours and gradually ease of . I have had this problem for about ten years. I get these attacks maybe two or three times a year and it always seem to be brought on by the foods I mentioned above. thank you for any suggestions as to what my problem

Thanks for writing to us.
The pain in the back that you are having is likely to be related to gas and indigestion which gets precipitated by the particular foods. Most of the times these symptoms are self limiting and subside spontaneously. Taking peppermint oil will also be helpful.
