After I finish eating my stomach start to blow up what is that?

Gastric emptying: The stomach distends when you eat to increase capacity (=receptive relaxation), then grinds the food to small particles to ease digestion in the intestine. Stomach emptying slows normally in response to a diet high in fats or with big meals. Delays in stomach emptying may result in abdominal distension, as with diabetes, hormone problems, partial blockages, ulcers, etc. Get checked if concerned.

Every time I finish eating my stomach is upset. Must go to the toilet to defacate. What is this?

Food: It is most likely that your body does not like your food choices. Suggest to eliminate soda, bread flour, sugar, deep fried food, ingredient hydrogenated oil, and artificial sweeteners. If there is a part of this list that you eat, and you still have gut related issues, you still have some work to do. Or look for a doctor who can prescribe medicine that helps your body compensate.

Why everytime when I finish eating my stomach looks big and weird like if I had a ball inside of me? Is that normal?

Why everytime when I finish eating my stomach looks big and weird like if I had a ball inside of me? Is that normal?

Maybe, maybe not: A person whose stomach looks like a ball after eating, especially like a round soccer ball instead of an oblong football, would appear unusual. Even the stomachs of very slim people blend into their body contours after a big meal (but their tummies do seem bigger & firmer after eating). The person can make an appointment for after a big lunch, and show his doctor the ball-shaped tummy.

Abdominal: Abdominal pain elicited by palpation and related to meals could reflect possible peptic ulcer among other things. It would be wise to have your physician obtain a thorough history and exam and decide on a proper course of treatment or appropriate referal to a GI doctor if deemed necessary. For now, at least, try to avoid spicy, acidic, and heavily seasoned foods; don't eat large or bulky foods within several hours of lying down; cut down on foods or drink high in caffeine content (coffee, tea, cola, chocolate, mountain dew, etc.). If not medically contraindicated with the meds your on (check with pharmacist) you may want to consider Prilosec otc while your waiting to see your doctor.

Get exam ; testing to identify problem ; fix.

My stomach hurts every time I finish eating breakfast. What could be wrong?

What's for breakfast: It you only have the pain after breakfast - I wonder what you are eating for that meal? Is it the all american eggs, bacon, ham, sausage, pancakes, grits etc? If the food you are eating is too rich or heavy - consider making some lighter food choices that incorporate vegetables and fruit. Take care.

What are my realistic chances of stomach or colon cancer at 22? I usually have a big appetite but today I couldn't finish eating a hamburger steak

What are my realistic chances of stomach or colon cancer at 22? I usually have a big appetite but today I couldn't finish eating a hamburger steak

Cancer unlikely: Losing your appetite or feeling full early just once today is unlikely to be cancer. At 22, your chances of other causes, such as a temporary stomach bug, gastritis or acid reflux, are much higher than your risk of cancer. Take it easy, avoid alcohol, tobacco, spicy and acidic foods (such as citrus & tomato) for the next few days, and if you don't feel back to yourself within a week, see your dr.

I experience symptoms of a heart attack that go away with any anti acid. After eating I can not walk or bend down. Also the area of the stomach blows?

I experience symptoms of a heart attack that go away with any anti acid. After eating I can not walk or bend down. Also the area of the stomach blows?

Gastritis: Any chest pain that goes away after eating, or that goes away after a quick-acting antacid (like Tums) is suggestive of gastroesophagitis - irritation of the lining of the stomach or esophagus from excess stomach acid. This can also lead to stomach ulcers. Best to see a gastroenterologist (GI doctor) to help diagnose & treat. Use HealthTap Prime to find and discuss. Good luck!

Oct 15 2014 they removed my gallbladder. Since then I finish eating I have a bowel movement. What can I do also stomach pains.. ... please help?

Bile binders: In the rare patient, diarrhea or loose stools develop after gallbladder removal surgery. A trial with a bile binder such as Questran (cholestyramine) might help you. In some area Questran (cholestyramine) is available without prescription. Okay to ask your pharmacist, and then go to your regular doc. If you do not respond, you may benefit from colonoscopy and EGD to look for other problems. Be well.

Finished flagyl treatment for d.fragilis, feel better but have dull stomach ache, is it due to eating unhealthy foods like Chips for past few days?

Finished flagyl treatment for d.fragilis, feel better but have dull stomach ache, is it due to eating unhealthy foods like Chips for past few days?

Maybe the bacteria: I was wondering how did you know that it was d.fragilis, you probably had your stool tested and confirmed it. You have to know that d.fragilis can cause stomach aches, although you got rid of the bacteria, your bowels are still inflamed, so that's why you might still have the symptoms. Less likely due to eating ships, I would give it some time to get better.

I was told I have IBS-D but recently I have had severe burning in my stomach after eating. Can't finish a meal/nausea/indigestion. What could this be?

I was told I have IBS-D but recently I have had severe burning in my stomach after eating. Can't finish a meal/nausea/indigestion. What could this be?

Call GI doc: Sounds like these are new symptoms. The GI doc needs to know about them as they could indicate an alternate diagnosis, or at least a separate diagnosis. Could be inflammation of the stomach for usual reasons (medication side effect, H.pylori infection) or indication of more extensive inflammation (Crohns disease for example) and a new evaluation is warranted.
