Acid reflux? : You may have acid reflux -- acid coming up into the esophagus, gastritis -- inflammation of the stomach,or gastroparesis -- a paralysis of the stomach caused by nerve damage. Any of these could make you feel full easily after eating and as if stomach is not emptying. See your doctor and get checked. Good luck!
