For those of you who do not do well with FODMAPs, what is your usual reaction time? Can you tell within like an hour, a day, 36 hours? Does it vary?

Thank you for your responses. I get confused because I can feel fine and then pain and discomfort start pretty quickly after I eat a meal and usually are the worst about an hour after I eat. It makes me think that meal caused the issues.
