I dont know what the issue is.. Ive always been able to eat apples..

This last Week or so, every time I eat one, I get really nauseous and get almost instant diarrhea.

Whats going on???

Goodness, I haven't ever heard of such a thing. Are they fresh apples? Is there any way they could be tainted with anything? Also, are you taking any new medications or supplements?

Hmmm. Well, I would definately stop eating them.

I don't eat apples anymore because they cause my stomach to ache.
Not diarrhea, but just a stabbing pain in my stomach.
I really love a nice Gala apple--but they're off my list of foods.

No, everything is normal, same medications and vitamines, jùst that I havnt eaten an apple in months. Its been mostly oranges and pears. I know I cant drink the jùice straight, it has to be mixed with something or else it will come right back ùp.. Bùt ive never had any problem with the actùal frùit before.
I had allergy testing done in Aùgùst 2008, and nothing came back for any food related allergies..

I used to be able to eat two apples a day with no issues, then for no reason things changed. Stomach pains.. bad ones anytime I ate an apple. I just am no longer able to digest them raw. A year or so later, broccoli, and carrots joined the list. There is a whole list of foods now that no longer can be eaten. it might be an issue with the rawness.. try maybe baking an apple or trying applesauce. Not the same, I know. :(

It's a drag getting old!

I have IBS, so a lot of foods, especially fresh fruits and veggies can cause this problems. Eating smaller amounts in a serving helps (buying the smallest apples, or eating only half an apple, for example). Apples are getting so huge, they can weigh almost a pound (the equivalent of 4 servings of fruit).
