  • Flareup after eating certain hot sauce???

    There is this one restaraunt that I have went to several times. I get the cheese enchaladas so I cannot imagine my problem associated with the beans, tortillas, or cheese. That leaves the hot sauce. I tend to eat a lot of spicy food (usually dehydrated peppers are used at home) and I have never found this to be a problem.

    Has anyone had this issue with getting a flareup after eating lots of hot sauce?
    Could it be a base they are using in the hot sauce?

      Yes, wouldn't touch hot sauce with a ten foot pole. Just reading the title of your post made my bladder hurt.

      That said, one of the worst IC flares I ever had was from a tortilla - turns out it had metabisulfite, citric acid and sorbic acid as preservatives. 3 day horrible flare.
      And it looked so darn innocent.... Label reading is essential for IC patients. Sometimes a "safe" food isn't safe, if it has problem preservatives hiding in it.

      I hope you feel better soon,
