Can always eating before bed lead to digestive and bowel problems?

Can always eating before bed lead to digestive and bowel problems?

Sometimes yes: People who eat or drink before lying down often get reflux of some stomach contents back into the esophagus. Over the years, this causes irritation to the esophagus, because stomach contents is acidic. A person can then suffer heartburn symptoms. It is better to stay upright after eating until the stomach has emptied (about an hour later). The bowels (intestines) are probably not affected. ...Read more

Is there a multivitamin to take to make you hungry ? Or eat more. Haven't been eating due to stress and thinking blood in stool and bad headaches

Is there a multivitamin to take to make you hungry ? Or eat more. Haven't been eating due to stress and thinking blood in stool and bad headaches

No: Multivitamins don't do that in the U.S. But, if a person takes the kids' gummy vitamins, he can chew 4-6 of them each day to add up to an adult dose. Because they taste like candy, they are likely to make him want more candy, Gummy Bears, chocolate, or snack foods. This is not a nutritious way to do things, but is likely the only way any multivitamin can make a person want to eat something else ...Read more

Can caffeine pills cause frequent  defecation and gas? Or can peppermint tea cause frequent defecation and gas? Take both in the a.m and have "issues"

Possibly.: Either of these can cause GI side effects, so it is not clear what is going on in your situation. I would stop both of them for now. If your symptoms go away, and if you want to restart either of them in the future, do it slowly, one at a time, and see what happens. Depending on how much caffeine you've been taking, you may develop a headache for a few days when you stop it. Good luck. ...Read more
