    Every time after I eat, I feel sick
    jeannap posted:
    I have noticed over the past couple of years that after I eat (no matter what it is), I get sick to my stomach. Sometimes it is just light cramping but other times it can get so bad that I cannot even walk without being in pain. I have been trying to find out what could cause this, but have not been able to find anything. I wanted to see if I could get help here before having to go see a doctor.

    What kind of hurts is it? I have a similar problem, but mine has to do with my whole stomach, just in different places and at different times. I get aches at the top of my tummy, and I can't eat a whole lot because I get a full feeling fast. Then a little while later, my lower part of my tummy cramps sometimes really bad, other times light. If you are having similar effects, then I suggest that you go and see a DR. really soon. I was diagnosed with GERD (Gastral Esophageal Reflux Disease) and or Ulcers. There are over the counter meds that might help, such as zantac (rantadine), prilosec, and tums. Maybe you need to keep a food diary to see if you can figure out what foods make the tummy hurt worse. Also take note of extra stressful days. limit fats and citric acids, and hot and spicy foods. I hope this helps you some.
