does diet coke make your stomache hurt?

I can drink regular coke and it doesn't.. but diet coke makes my stomache hurt every time. :( Sprite too.

Am I the only one?

  • It doesn't hurt mine. It may be the artificial sweetener that's bothering you.

  • last time i drank diet coke it had aspartame which gives me major migraines (which come with nausea, body aches) and makes my hair fall out, etc. it wouldn't surprise me at all. your body isn't designed to handle "foodlike substances" it is designed to handle food.

  • I only drink diet. Doesn't seem to bother my tummy at all. But, you may not be able to tolerate the artificial sweeteners. Do you eat/drink anything else with artificial sweeteners that bother you?

  • I can't drink Any diet coke, pepsi, sprite or any other diet drink. It hurts my stomach sooo bad I feel like I'm about to keel over and die. I won't touch it. The pain I'm in after drinking it is so not worth it.

    Sugar-free candy bugs my stomach too.

    I just avoid them like the plague.

    So I don't think your alone. :-)

  • No I don't really use artificaial sweeteners... I use Splenda in my coffee when I have a cup once in a blue moon.

    I never thought the artificial sweeteners could cause that!
