Well, fatty and oily foods, raw veggies, beans, white bread, peanut butter (which I love), caffeine and more. But what happens is I haven't had relief from this yet. It has been continuous since it started. My doc just told me he's going to review my chart and call me tomorrow to figure out what to do next. I was just on Xifaxan but it didn't help. Thanks.

The only foods I cannot eat are any type of Oriental dishes. The worst for me is Japanese.
