Every time I eat jelly babies I get the burps, then my chest starts to get painful and I have problems breathing. The Haribo ones are the worst, Bassetts don't give me as much trouble, but I've had a few supermarket own brand ones tonight and now I'm sat up gasping.
I seem to suffer similar with any fruity sweets, but only just connected them to the breathing problems. It's like I have a lot of bubbles stuck under my lungs in the diaphragm area, when I lay down to try and sleep I burp, which isn't good news as it tastes acid.
Could it be the E numbers in the colours, or something in the jelly ? I really don't know what to make of this revelation but it's certainly something to cut out before bedtime it seems.
