Since I was little I've had a major food issue that no one will believe me about! They won't believe me, because it sounds too weird to exist. But, I CANNOT eat anything raw. Veggies, fruits, cookie dough, cake batter, brownie batter, meat, etc. because when I attempt to, I get very bad pain in my chest that continues through my back. It's a tingly, painful, pain that almost forces me to throw up but if it's cooked, there's no issue. Please help me convince myself I'm not crazy :(
Could you be a little more specific about the tingly painful pain? And your age? Any other digestive problems such as constipation or diarrhea?
It could be a number of things. Gastroesophageal Reflux can be associated with esophageal spasms. This means your esophagus goes into a spasm when you eat certain foods or food with certain textures. When the esophagus goes into a spasm, people feel a strong pain in the chest area and it can sometimes cause vomiting. The spasm literally will not allow food to pass down to the stomach. This can happen when you have a stomach ulcer, gastroenteritis or other inflammation in your digestive tract. Acidic foods (orange juice and vinegar are the worst) and spices (such as raw garlic and onion) typically cause pain in people with ulcers and gastroenteritis, and cooked foods are usually not as acidic; therefore do not cause as much pain. There is also another possibility of Crohn's disease which involves inflammation in various parts of the digestive tract. This can remain undiagnosed or misdiagnosed for years.
A few things you can do to differentiate the problem: when you have the pain, apply a heating pad or hot water bottle right where you feel it, liquid minerals or place a powdered or liquid calcium supplement under the tongue. If this releases the pain, you'll know it's a spasm. Spasms are usually associated with inflammation (as mentioned above), and a mineral deficiency. Taking liquid minerals under the tongue or a bit of lobelia extract can help to release these types of spasms.
Sometimes people have symptoms that are not taken seriously. That's too bad for so many people that have unusual symptoms and are just seeking relief. No one likes being told they are crazy while they are suffering and in pain. Don't let anyone tell you you're crazy. If you have symptoms, they are there for a reason. It's how your body is communicating with you to let you know something's wrong. We just need to learn how to speak our body's language so we understand the messages.
You might look into chia seed, flax seed recipes (flax seed tea) as these are very soothing and healing to the digestive tract. If flax seed tea soothes your stomach, it's possible you have an inflamed digestive tract.
I'll be happy to help you figure it out.
