I declare that this is the last time I'm going to eat pizza
I'm currently like having a mini-prelude to a heart attack or something. It feels like I'm going to have a flu or something. This is all happening right after I ate some pizza.
Well, what kind of pizza? Maybe you just need to upgrade.
Next time don't eat pizza from the Dumpster.
It was a pepperoni pizza, I had some pepsi with it. And now I feel like I'm dying.
Some of the big pizza chains use fake cheese. I've had that feeling, too.
I HATE fake cheese. How do you know if they use it or not? Also what's with this pre-grated cheese in supermarkets? It doesn't taste like real cheese that comes in a block and that you actually have to grate either.
Could be the dough. Always makes me feel like I'm going to burst if I eat bread or the like.
So you logged onto DataLounge to tell us? You should be talking to the 911 operator.
Google "hiatal hernia".
What sort of physical condition are you in generally OP?
The way you feel could be the early warning signs of a heart attack.
I avoid Pepsi, Coke, and all other high-fructose garbage because of this problem. I diagnose phony sugar rush along with super high-fat = massive indigestion, especially if you're very hungry and eat too fast.
Do you have acid reflux? Pizza can set off. I used to like pizza but I take a chance eating it anymore.
Take some Maalox and quit eating crap food.
R11, Thanks for that link. Did you read up on "Carmine" additive #1?
What does your ass smell like currently, OP?
Oh now, Miss Scarlett, you come on and eat jess a little honey!
It might be a tumor.
Acid reflux, Mary.
Another vote for OP to upscale his choice of pizzerias. I thought I was just getting eldergut, but when I ate a pizza from a decent place, I was fine.
That fake cheese will get you every time.
Take some aspirin before you go to bed. Trust me on this.
I have been making pizza from scratch including the dough. BIG difference between that and delivery.
What I found out was places like Pappa Johns use fake cheese, and all sort of dough "conditioners" that help speed up the process of making and baking. Lower quality, but faster results.
The toppings are also the lowest quality. I love peperoni but what you buy at the deli counter and what you get on the pizza are two different things. Pink slime comes to mind.
I am with the others, you probably have acid reflux.
R15, That is no really news, I heard that 25 years ago in high school. Just think all the Red Velvet cake you like has quite a bit of red die in it. Just saying.
Too bad I hadn't read about acid reflux disease as a culprit. I had to learn the hard way. Bad timing! Oh well, I can pass the info.
If you're in your early forties, you may have hit your salt wall.
I can't eat pizza or other really salty food regularly anymore. It makes me thirsty and bloaty.
Or... your shit diet may mean that you are experiencing the beginnings of type II diabetes. The fat and simple carbs are throwing your body for a loop.
Oregano gives me indigestion, but if that were your case, it should not have just happened this time. You might have gotten infected with bacteria growing on the pizza. I am fearful of food from any kind of restaurant, and I cook from scratch, and eat at home as much as possible.
Does it have a lot of red die, R23? Really? Are you sure it doesn't have red DYE in it? Hrm...
I just had a Double King Burger with Chili Bacon, cheese and a fried egg on top. Washed it down with a double Chocolate shake.
For some reason, I feel bloated. Maybe I have a gluten allergy, maybe it's the salt?
It's your gallbladder, OP. Trust me. This happened to me two months ago. I thought I had food poisoning and acid reflux. The pain was so bad, it felt like I was dying. It turned out that my gallbladder was full of gallstones and infected. I had to have emergency surgery. It was brought on by eating too much peanut butter candy.
If the pain is bad, or you start vomiting uncontrollably, go to the hospital immediately. Otherwise, go to your doctor and ask for a gallbladder function test. I bet your gallbladder is not functioning well.
Also, clean up your diet but do it gradually. Suddenly changing your diet from high fat to low fat can trigger a gallbladder attack.
That salami and peperoni are made by adding Potassium Nitrate to raw meat to keep it that "natural color". But then again, they do that to all pastrami meat as well. All deli meats would be brown or gray if they left it out.
Has OP been back to post? Or die she die?
I guess we'll never know...
I think OP is trying to make THIS thread happen, but both are kinda boring...even combined.
Not of you put 2 and 2 together. Now I know why the OP has a "salt" reaction to his pizza.
Possibly celiac ...get tested!
yes, R15, I read about the "carmine" thing - crushed bugs!
I have to agree with R29, gallbladder. I had those symptoms after eating a bloomin onion and hot brownie sundae at the Outback. Funny enough when I went to the ER, my private dr. and the surgeon they all said how they loved the bloomin onion.
I have pizza about twice a week, but I always make it from scratch. It's pretty healthy and delicious and only takes a few minutes to prepare.
9,9,9! my pizza is fine! It's all artificial and it's good for you*
*just don't eat it.
R23, That's why I love being on DL, to keep me up on everything trendy. I always thought that Red Velvet Cake didn't taste like chocolate, and thus was a waste of calories. Does anyone know if it's really because of carmine?
Again, does anyone know which pizza chains to avoid because they use artificial cheese?
"Oh my God. I'm back. I'm home. All the time, it was... We finally really did it ... You Maniacs! You blew it up! Ah, damn you! God damn you all to hell!"
We are switching to the new platform for The DataLounge this weekend. All of our mobile users have been using it for over a week and all first time users have been using it for about a month - which adds up to well over one million users. So we're ready to end this phase of the testing and move everybody to the new site. (more)
And yes, we've changed the look and some of how it operates.
Yes, we know you just *hate* it in well in advance.
Yes, we know we suck.
Yes, we are the biggest suckers that ever sucked.
But it was time for a change and with the huge shift to mobile it was long overdue. We've taken this opportunity not only to update the look but also make major changes under the hood (or "bonnet" if you're either British or pretentious or both). And we have to prepare for 2016 - a presidential election year where we can normally expect to see a 60% jump in traffic (yes, we've seen 5 presidential elections so far…Christ we're old).
The site has a bunch - nay, plethora - of new features which will make the site more usable: better search, the ability to ignore posters and threads, see link previews, to pick up a thread where you left off, spam and malware filtering and more.
If you want you can go explore and see for yourself, Click here.
And while running the tests we've noticed two interesting reactions to the new system - people are spending more time on the site and more people that come stay around longer and look at more stuff. Both good things. Yay!
Possibly we've not slain all the dragons and there will be issues that come up during the switchover. There's a help button in the lower right hand corner of the page which you can use to send us bug reports.
Please include as much information about the hardware (PC, Mac, Tablet, Phone etc), operating system (Windows, Mac OS, Android, iOS etc) and browser (Chrome, Safari, Opera, Internet Explorer etc) that you are using as possible to help us replicate and fix the problem.
Please note that complaints about colors, fonts, icons and the like are not "bugs" - they are design choices that we've made and we expect one or two cases of world-class bitching. But they won't actually cause headaches, scurvy, heart attacks, Restless Leg Syndrome, Morgellon's Disease or the vapors (but have your smelling salts at hand just in case).
Talking to DataLounge servers. Please wait a moment...
