Shrimp & Scallops

Does anyone else have a digestive problem with these? What I'm talking about is the speed with which it travels from entrance to exit. I wonder if that's normal, or if perhap my body doesn't tolerate those foods well.

Certain foods effect me the same way, but I still eat them and suffer- love'em !

Two weeks ago I bought scallops, they were great, no problem. Last week I bought more and they went right through me, not sure why. They had some sand in them as I recall, the crunch really turned me off so I didnt finish them off. Shrimp seems ok for me so far. Is this a new thing constance? Not sure if this was recent or longer than that? However, as Barb L mentioned, certain foods do affect me adversely as well.

It's not new, Amber. When we used to go to Florida every year, I made sure to take a bottle of Pepto Bismal with me to neutralize the effects of all the fresh seafood I ate down there. Fish doesn't bother me...just the shellfish.
Like Barb, I eat it anyway.

A lot of people have troubles with them. If you are of some cultural/ethnic/religous backgrounds, you may not have been exposed to them in your younger years and may simply be unused to them. They are bottom-feeders and that may be it. I, personally, love linguini with clam sauce, but will never order it in a restaurant because within an hour I'll need an emergency trip to the bathroom. A lot of people have problems with shellfish.
