Other : Other things to consider if this happens routinely after you eat are gallstones and inadequate blood supply to the bowel. Gallstone pain is classically brought on by eating fatty foods and is most easily tested for with ultrasound. The problem of inadequate blood supply to the bowel (called mesenteric ischemia) is much less common than gallstones. It can also be tested for with ultrasound, though the tech needs to know that he or she should be looking at blood vessels. ...Read more
