Does anyone get stomach problems when you drink diet sodas or " sugar free" drinks???

I don't have any problems with diet drinks like soda or the powdered drink mixes. I don't drink them very often but that's just because I prefer water over anything else. I occasionally will have some diet ginger ale or some Sprite Zero tho.

Personally I got a laxitive effect when I drink more than 2 cans of diet drinks sweetened with Splenda —- I don't drink sodas at all any more, diet or otherwise.

My bride Jem, when she was alive, couldn't handle ANY diet drinks at all. The alternative sweeteners bothered her tummy. I tried everything with her. She could only drink regular sodas or fruit juices.

I have been drinking diet drinks forever. Only time it bothers me is when there is ice in the drink. Don't know why

Only when I drink an excessive amount of them. And then it's off to sit on the porcelain god 4 a good while. And I hope that I remembered a book.

There have been discussions in the past that some sugar substitutes have a laxative effect. I don't use enough of those products for them to affect me that way. I don't have stomach problems, but there aren't many things that will give me stomach problems.
