Large range of possibilities: There are a large range of possibilities that could cause that to be occurring. First, some ulcers can make people feel a hunger type of pain. You should make sure your doctor has checked for this. Also, depending on what you are eating, some people have postprandial hypoglycemia, which just means that sugar levels fall after eating, causing the hunger.
