Hi, yeah I get it too. So painful sometimes, no wonder babies cry when they get it. I've tried the same things you do, literally only thing that gets it gone is moving about and get it moving. Which is so hard because moving is also painful. I tried avoiding fizzy things but sometimes I have a lucozade, sometimes that helps sometimes it makes it worse

A friend told me about this simple remedy but I never tried it because I thought it would make things worse....not too long ago I was desperate so used her solution which is just to drink 2 large glasses of room temperature water. Within a short time everything started moving along and within 30 minutes the pain was gone.

gayla she didn't give me details but the 2 glasses I drank were probably 24 ounces total. I used RO water from a crock so it was already at room temp.

Pineapple is definitely NOT a citrus fruit, not even close from an evolutionary perspective. It is in the taxonomic family Bromeliaceae.

Pineapple fruit does contain protease enzymes called bromelian. Proteases are enzymes that chop up proteins, usually for digestive purposes. In concentrated form, it can be used as a meat tenderizer applied to raw meat.
Bromelain is also sold in concentrated form as a "digestive aid," but I am very skeptical of it's effectiveness in helping digest protein. Why? The protease enzymes in pineapple (and it's juice) are quite weak compared to our own proteases, which our stomachs and intestines secrete into our digestive tracts. They break down all sorts of proteins we eat, including the thousands of enzymes in every cell of every food we ingest.

Our intrinsic digestive juices break down virtually ALL proteins (enzymes are proteins, BTW) to their component 20 amino acids, which are absorbed and enter our circulatory systems. Later, our cells utilize these amino acids to build the proteins they need to function, and we need to live.
I seriously doubt there is any effect of pineapple enzymes on the human body aside from on the tongue. If your mouth tingles after eating pineapple, that the enzymatic activity I've mentioned, which is deactivated in the stomach and upper GI tract.

That is not to say that some people with ulcerative colitis are adversely affected by eating pineapple. If one is, it's most likely from the plants very high fiber content: A cup serving of the fruit contains ~ 2.3 grams, of dietary fiber. "A cup of raw pineapple chunks provides 6 to 11 percent of the recommended daily fiber intake. All but trace amounts of the fiber in pineapples consists of insoluble fiber."
