A 28-year-old female asked:
Gastroparesis?: Patients with delayed stomach emptying often have worse symptoms over the course of the day as each meal piles on top of the last. After a prolonged fasting period while sleeping, this could abate. It's not a typical history, but symptoms such as fullness, upper bloating, inability to eat a full-sized meal, or vomiting undigested food several hours after eating would support this diagnosis.
A 24-year-old male asked:
Absolutely: I have diagnosed many patients with abdominal pain referred from the spine. Additionally, nerve impingement from a herniated disk can certainly cause paraspinal muscle tenderness at that level. A herniation at T10/11 would typically be in the upper abdomen. Association with eating would suggest otherwise, as would tenderness over the abdomen.
