Hi lovelife15,

Certain foods can cause gas and some cramping-- these include:


Breads and Cereals

Whole grains (eg, whole wheat, brain, oats) and whole grain products


  • Asparagus
  • Broccoli
  • Brussels sprouts
  • Cabbage
  • Carrots
  • Cauliflower
  • Celery
  • Corn
  • Cucumbers
  • Leeks
  • Onions
  • Peas
  • Peppers
  • Potatoes
  • Radishes
  • Sauerkraut
  • Turnips


  • Apricots
  • Apples
  • Pears
  • Peaches
  • Cantaloupe and other melons
  • Raisins
  • Prunes
  • Citrus fruits


Milk and other dairy products, including highly fermented cheese

Meat and Beans

Beans and other legumes (eg, baked beans, garbanzo, kidney, lentil, lima, navy, pinto)

Sorbitol-Containing Products

Sugar-free hard candies and gum


  • Milk and milk products (if lactose intolerant)
  • Carbonated drinks

You can also be cramping due to ovulation or something that you ate that didn't settle well in your stomach or even caused food poisoning.

All the best,
