Thanks for the thought Angel, but I doubt it. I am, and have always been probably one of the most fibrefull people I know. I eat more legumes than anyone I know, usually eat wholemeal or multigrain breads and have wholesome, fibrous breakfasts like muesli and I have a real weakness for fruit (the bloke calls me a fruit bat), and being mostly vegetarian and too broke to buy meat anyway I eat lots of vegies.
I think I worked out what the trouble was. The samosas I made a few days ago gave a recipe for the pastry as just flour and water. I wondered about that, but hey that's what the recipe said. It tasted terrible, so when i made more pastry for the rest of the mix I did it slightly differently (some margarine and wholemeal flour). Pastry still isn't my strong point, but it was a bit better.
I think the fact that the pasty was basically glue may have blocked me up. the cramps were mostly in the left side, which, if I've got this right, is where you usually get constipation pain, and I hadn't been very regular. But I think I might be right now.
Thanks for all the concern. I think also there may have been a stomach acid overload as I like to drink my water with lemon juice because I don't like the taste of water. So I'm going to stick to plain water for a little while even though I think it's blagh.
