Welcome to the gastroenterology community!  This is most likely not serious and is caused by the red dye in your foods.  Does this ever happen when you haven't eating anything that is red in color?

That is unrelated to your other symptoms.  I would recommend seeing your doctor about this.

I had painful red diarrhea after having a cherry 7 Up yesterday. Red dye is a common "allergy" according to my research. Some people's bodies cannot digest it and they end up with stomach pain, gas and diarrhea. Red dye is in a lot of processed foods which would explain why you get stomach aches so often. Red 40 is the most common culprit. I know this post is old but I hope you get this or have figured it out for yourself. I know I don't want to feel like I did yesterday, again. No more red dye for me.
