Stomach pain
Last night I ate bottle gourd (lauki) which was bitter in taste. Within half an hour I my stomach started paining quite a bit, especially below the ribs on the right side. I just took a probiotic capsule and then the pain subsided. But I read on the internet that bitter bottle gourd can be very toxic and dangerous. I want to know if the toxin remains in the system after 12 hrs or so? Right now there is no pain. Thanks.
