have been to the cinema and ate loads of sugarfree gummy sweets.I had major cramps and wind throughout the da vinci code(pity the poor buggers behind me!)
Now I have major squits,honestly am too frightened to fart!
How long will this self induced hell last??

ds1 screams for about 12-24 hours after sorbitol (usually starting the next day though), so you should be OK by tomorrow sometime!

You can have immodium to slow down the bowel, they will help a little with the cramps.

I know what you mean - weight watchers Fruities sweets (only half a point per paket!) are full of sorbitol.
Unfortunately I am addicted to the liquorice ones.
Still, the diet is working a treat!

Glad I'm not alone with this. I find more than two sorbitol sweets & I get the worst farts ever. I mentioned it to my GP once who obviously thought I was barmy.
Hope your guts are feeling better now ggirl.
