Common Questions and Answers about Stomach pain goes away after eating

stomach-pain

Since then when I eat about an hour later I get upper left pain that is aches and is crampy, no burning, but my stomach feels very bloated. This all goes away when my stomach is empty, no pain, bloating etc. I have not noticed a change in bowel habits. My stomach is not tender to the touch either. My father had terrible bleeding ulcers as an adult. Any ideas as to what may cause this? Thank you.
I sometimes experience stomach pain after eating a meal (usually breakfast). What happens typically is that I wake-up and eat a breakfast (sometimes leftovers from the previous nights, sometimes cereal). Then I’m out the door to catch the bus to go to school/work. It takes me about 1.5 hours to reach my destination, and I usually have to transfer several times. For the first part of my trip, I have a 45 minute bus ride where I usually nap.
I have been experiencing some pain in my upper stomach immediately after eating for about six weeks now. I am male, white and 65 years old. I am diabetic and have been taking metformin, crestor and altace for several years with no ill effects. The pain occurs about 15 to 30 seconds after ingesting food or drink. Fresh fruit and salads seem to cause more intense pain. Antacids do not in any way alleviate the problem. This pain is not at all like acid indigestion or heartburn.
but the night after that the pain came back, and i had very liquidy diarrhea, after going to the bathroom a few times, i was able to sleep fine Since then, the diarrhea has gone away, but everytime i eat i get intense pain my stomach that goes to my back, nothing seems to help it, except when i get in a shower under warm to hot water, it seems to releave teh symptoms, it feel like i'm going to throw up, but i havn't yet.
Sometimes the pain comes and i eat something, and it goes away. Other times i have no pain, and after eating, i get the pain. This morning i had a coffee and a bagel, and had no pain. Half hour later i get the pain along with mid back pain. I have had both pains now almost all day and nothing helps. I have tried eating, and nothing makes it go away. Does anyone know what this could be? I can't pinpoint it to me eating a specific food, it happens with all types of foods.
For the past month I have been having difficulties after eating. Symptoms include pain in left flank, pain in lower left abdomen, pain in lower right abdomen, feeling bloated, feeling full after eating very little, flatulence, belching, a lot of gurgling noise in my stomach, nausea that comes and goes and loose stools that float to the surface, sometimes with mucus in the stool. I have tried sticking to bland foods but it doesn't seem to help.
Sometimes it is accompanied by mild gas, and often headaches too. It goes away only after I am asleep and is usually not present in the mornings before I eat. I have been keeping a log of my diet for the past two weeks and there does not seem to be any trigger foods. I have been tested for infection (h. plyori), celiac disease, and appendicitis, all negative. I have brought up the possibility of ovarian cysts but OBGYN dismissed it.
Started back on regular food (for me) yesterday and am not experiencing the bloating I was before, so hopefully things are back to normal. Am feeling a little stuffed after eating sometimes (but I was eating small meals while on my diet of blandness) but no bloating like before. BTW, an aunt recommended Flaxseed Oil (in capsule) as a good dietery supplement to keep things regular. I have been taking anti-gas Legumase before diner and it seems to help (it doesn't hurt at least).
For a very long time I have always had this stomach pain that I nicknamed "Hunger Pains". It seems that every time I wait too long to eat my stomach gets this pain always on my left side. It feels as if I have been stabbed or someone is pulling my stomach out causing me to hunch over when I walk. It hurts so bad that alot of times I can't stand up straight b/c it feels as if my stomach has tightened or something.
My stomach bloats and becomes hard. I am unable to put pressure on any part of my stomach. Once this pain goes away I find that for another couple of days when I eat I get the same type of pain right after eating, just not as severe. I notice that I experience headache's much more often a couple of weeks before my cycle, also a large increase of weight only in the stomach area. I am only 38 and have been chocking this up to an early change of life.
I hope your stomach pain goes away. It sounds like you are being careful and not stressing it. Are you drinking plenty of water? I got a headache all night long one time when I didn't drink enough water before and after my shot. You know the stomach can get knotted or feel like that just from nerves. You should practice some relaxation techniques - deep breathing, mild exercise, stretching, etc.
hi, i get sick too after eating. i also have pain in my right hand side, under my ribs, travelling to my back. it goes after i am sick. i had a small headache today too. if you get any answers, i would be interested in what you receive.
I am a 61 yr old female. I have once in a while a heaviness in chest area after eating. It goes away rather quickly. I am a very anxious person and think this pressure may be something more. I have lost 100 pounds these last two years and walk 30 minutes each day without any discomfort whatsoever. I had a 70% blockage in left carotid and had subsequent endarterectomy. Right side is 35%. I have had follow-ups and these are ok with left one clean and the other stays the same.
i go 3 or 4 times before i get relief and my stomach still hurts a little. i have a pain on my lefy sid that goes into the back area. i get sick at my stomach also.
I am not taking any meds that should be hurting my stomach like this. it gets better after i have gotten up and eaten something, but i can't figure out what is causing it. does this have anything to do with low thyroid or low cortisol?--or am i having another unrelated problem that should be checked out?
There have been times when I have gotten off my routine (I haven't worked out for a week or so) and the pain goes away. It also depends on the kind of workout I do. When I strain my back/stomach or run on the treadmill for an extended period of time (30 - 60 min) the pain seems to invariably set in. In some of my longer runs (60+ min) I've had a little blood in my urine, which I've been told all my life is normal for distance runners.
The one time I ate about a cup I did experience some pain. Went for a walk and it went away. After the 2 weeks I could eat normally. Just be sure and chew your food very very well. The only lingering problem is gas. The gas level is higher. I do take gas-x and it help. I would do it again.
There is no known cause, possible electrolyte imbalance sure, but who knows really. . Then it goes away. . Well , your heart is also a muscle, so I figure this is sort of like a muscle twitch. It will go away eventually, don't worry about it. Worry more about driving to work. Good luck, and remember that thousands of other people also have this and it's not going to kill you. L.L.
It's right in the pit of my stomach like a bowl full of acid. Then it goes away about an hour after eating and comes back the next time. Then I have major gas overnight and a very soft stool every morning. I sometimes have a dull pain on my right chest to under might right shoulder. My doc thinks it might be gallbladder disease which is why I'm getting it tested this week. Does it sound like that to you guys? Or could it be something else?
NOW, I have what all you guys have, I'm getting extremely nauseous and weak after eating, yet I get really hungry and shaky if I don't eat. My stomach is gurgling a lot, like I can feel the food being digested, and I have a lot of gas. I'm not quite sure what to do! I've had a bottle of water and a bucket near me for the past couple of days, and I haven't been able to do anything but sleep. I'm not sexually active, nor have I ever been on birth control.
I take Benadryl only if I have to. The mucus after eating is a pain for sure. I did take a low dose of 7 day Medrol once. Doc said I had an allergy. The med is a tad harsh, being a steroid, but it DID the trick. So, 25 years later, maybe I need it again for 7 days. It's horrible drinking plain water, and having instant slime throat. The only thing that didn't make me get a reaction was parsley juice, and a clove of raw garlic in a blender, strained, and swallowed. Didn't even burn !
ok now what if you have the nausea after eating and for the rest of the day/evening when your not eating and your not nervous or stressed out? its strange b/c if i were pregnant i dont know how it would be. i haven't had sex for 1 month cuz i had surgery and the last 3 days i have been with my fiance. its not posssible to experience prego symptoms 3 days in. ??
And on such a day, why not apply 'honey' (or other sticky sweet food) on your teeth and wash it off after some time (like what you may do after eating food) and see if it brings on a headache. Keep us posted! Best, Dr.
The doctor stated it was caused by irritation of the diaphram nerve during the surgical procedure. I am 16 months post surgery and again experience left shoulder pain after eating a meal(2 weeks). It is a sharp pain in my left shoulder and radiates up the left side of my neck . Do you have any suggestions of what may be causing the pain? I believe it is related to my stomach some how.
I take 150mg Ranitidine (can't think of the common name) daily when I'm having stomach pain. I'll take it for a month or two until the pain goes away. I don't know if esophagitis is allergy related but I know food allergies can cause a lot of stomach distress such as gas (which can cause some of these symptoms). If I were you I would lso aget the EKG done anyway as I have done to rule heart problems and maybe if it is negative get an 24 hour heart monitor and/or echocardiogram.
The pain is not like a normal stomach pain i get, its like this muscle pain and spasm and it just goes away after 30 minutes by itself. Im not sure but i think eating helps the pain to go away faster. I went to my doctor and he said it could be stress related..but he didnt do any further examinations..Could anxiety do this to someone?
I could get a massage every day when I feel like this. I mean at least the pain goes away or is significantly reduced for a while after the massage. Working out is hit or miss. I mean sometimes it can reduce symptoms significantly and sometime very little, like today. But I think the positive effects of working out are cumulative and that regular workouts of at least 3x week really help me, where spuratic and intermittent workouts often correspond with an increased severity of symptoms.
