Maybe gastroparesis?: Regardless of cause, gastroparesis (delayed gastric emptying) presents with heartburn, chronic or intermittent nausea, vomiting (of old food), bloating, early satiety (fill up quickly), or abdominal pain postprandially (after eating). In mild cases, symptoms subside when the gut is empty but return when again full. One sees increased symptoms after a large solid meal vs a liquid one. Get checked.
