Possibly: In susceptible individuals, ace inhibitors can cause angioedema. This typically involves the lips or the face, but can affect any part of the skin and internal organs such as the intestines. It would be unusual for acei to cause angioedema of only the intestines, however. A thorough evaluation by an allergist can help you sort this out.
