Food poisoning maybe: Your symptoms are too nonspecific, but the timing of symptoms (and lack of refrigeration of pre-cooked food) sure supports an expectation of food poisoning. Should pass, but if distress persists, or is accompanied by bleeding, worsening pain, lightheadedness, or development of vomiting or fever, then get a good examination with appropriate testing for reassurance and/or treatment. ...Read more

I love mangoes and lately I enjoy eating a whole mango every day or so but about a minute after eating a mango I get stomach cramps?

Moderation: Mangoes are the best fruit. You may try to limit your intake to small portions, rather than eating a whole mango in one sitting. You may be able to gradually increase the amount you could eat at one time. For good health - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Drink enough water daily, so that your urine is mostly colorless. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually. Do not use tobacco, alcohol, weed or street drugs in any form. Practice safe sex. Get HPV vaccine. ...Read more

After eating coliflower sometimes i get gas and stomach cramps,  burping is this gastritis, if so what should I do I love vegatables?

Maybe intolerance: Seemingly your belly is just not agreeing with cauliflower. Most people have some degree of disagreement with certain foods. What you described is not gastritis. If you have excessive gas/belching with this, gas-x may help. Also, eat a bit less of this to see if it helps. Fortunately, there are plenty of other veggies around--i like them too. Veggies up to a healthier you! good luck. ...Read more
