Our expert says:
It can be a mere co-incidence that you had the maize based meals and these symptoms. I suggest that you have a gastroscopy and an upper abdominal ultrasound done. It is possible that you are suffering from gallstones and this will have to be investigated.
On rare occasions people do experience a reaction to maize and present with abdominal pain, nausea/vomitting and an a-typical dermatitis. To exclude a maize allergy, you should consult an allergy specialist for testing.
