Hello. I had gone a week without any symptoms and it was wonderful. For the first time in a long time I tried having popcorn, and within one hour I was having cramping in my upper and right upper abdoman really bad. I had it all night, and this morning I had eposodes of diarreah. Anyone else have a problem with popcorn?

Have been eating some popcorn the last 5 days and now have diarrhea. It has been over 4 years since I pigged out on popcorn. Paying the price, but enjoying the popcorn.Char

Also, take into consideration if it had butter and salt on it. The butter can be a bad thing. Don't know about the salt.
