What Causes A Stomach Ache After Eating
Depends: Stomach aches after eating can be from eating too much, eating something that disagrees with you because you can not tolerate it, causes reflux or gastritis (inflammation of the stomach). Try writing down what you eat to see ify ou can track it. The most common food intolerances are to dairy and gluten so do an elimination diet for 3 weeks without them and see how you feel. And see your doctor. ...Read more
Many things: It could be food sensitivity, allergies, lactose intolerance (dairy problem) too much food, blockage of some sort, malabsorption, type of food, etc. Keep a food journal and see if you can identify if a particular type of food is the problem, . Best to have it evaluated by a physician. ...Read more
Body self therapy: Your body is reacting in two ways. First, first helps to coat the ulcer and lessen irritation. Hunger brings in food. Second, without food, the stomach is more irritated and the muscles will contract more causing stomach rumbling. ...Read more
Aerophagia versus...: Aerophagia (swallowed air) distends stomach & may result in burping. Also, gassiness/ stomach distension after meals can reflect: 1) partial gastric outlet obstruction due to gastritis/ulcer; 2) pyloric narrowing from scar; 3) gastroparesis due to delayed emptying of stomach (as w/diabetic gut neuropathy); 4) bacterial overgrowth in gut; 5) any malabsorption; 6) pancreatic maldigestion 7) lots more. ...Read more
Make better choices: Fast food is notorious for being low in fiber & generally high in calories from concentrated sweets & fat. Fats delay stomach emptying & promote reflux. Dietary fats also promote release of cck & substance y which alters gut sensitivity, contracts the gallbladder, & prompts the "ileal brake" which in predisposed patients causes bloating & fullness. Choose instead salads, fruits, & whole grains. ...Read more
Chills: Yes. Chills occur when there is a discrepancy between the ambient atmospheric temperature and that of the surface of the skin. If the skin temp is lower, the body's thermostat will try to increase the temperature by chilling which is muscular and raises the temp. When you eat you may redistribute some of the circulation from the skin to the intestines, and a stomach ulcer may induce such changes. ...Read more
See your doctor: Symptoms and concerns like these mandate a thorough evaluation by your doctor. Only after such an evaluation, which may include labs and radiographic examinations, can he/she let you know what's going on and how best to help you. ...Read more
What causes pain in stomach after eating acidic food(mostly), burping, flatulence, and feeling very gassy, loose stool. Happening for a few days now. ?
Is burping a lot right after eating a symptom of pancreatitis?
Also have mild burning sensation in upper abdomen/chest after eating. No nausea.
Grease, lactose: Gas can be caused by foods with a lot of insoluble fiber (roughage), or by lactose intolerance. Also excessively greasy foods can cause gas as well. Rarely, there are abnormal twists (volvulus) of the sigmoid colon which can cause bloating. Lastly, cancerous growths can cause a blockage and bloating of the colon. See your doctor. ...Read more
Allergy? Reflux?: My best guess is that this could be due to irritation of your esphagus from reflux; this would be more likely if for example your symptoms were worse at night or when lying down. Another poosibility is a mild allergic reaction; this would be more likely if you also have seasonal allergies or similar reaction to other fruits. ...Read more
Sure its "gas pain"?: Feeling full of "gas" may reflect malabsorption of food (like gluten, lactose), intake of poorly digested food, or choosing foods known to promote gas (beans, fizzy drinks). Sometimes its more complicated--a stomach emptying too slowly, bacterial overgrowth syndrome, delayed intestinal function, partial obstruction from any cause, infection, rectum problems, and pelvic pathology outside the gut. ...Read more
Stomach emptying...: ...For most is 1-2 hours after liquid, 3-6 hours after solids are ingested. Carbohydrates, proteins, small frequent meals exit faster than fats &/or large meals. Medications, diabetes, neuropathies, some infections can alter stomach emptying as can mechanical delays due to stenosis &scarring of the pylorus, gallbladder disease, small bowel pathology.Get checked if post-prandial bloating persists. ...Read more
I got growling/hunger pain in stomach, somtimes, just a few hrs after eating, constant upper discomfort, and bloating when when full. What could cause?
A few things: Including gastritis/ulcers (acid produced when food is ingested); a mass close to stomach (vs lower, in colon); gallstones; intermittent/partial or early intestinal obstruction; pancreatitis (inflammation of pancreas, which secretes protein-eating enzymes). Try eating smaller more frequent meals, and see your doctor. May need a gastroenterologist for a scope (egd=esophagoduodenoscopy). ...Read more
