I am a healthy 41 year old female who was diagnosed with and treated for pyloric stenonis at 2 months old. I have had no stomach issues since infancy except for the occassional bout of constapation or diarreah like most folks, I am very regular. At least until about a month ago. While eating dinner one evening, just a few bites in I became very nauseated and my stomached cramped up. Although I never vomited, I have remained nauseous pretty much continuously for 4 weeks now. I have been completely irregular, only able to have a BM with the use of a laxative and sometimes even that doesn't help. But the kicker is that no matter what I try to eat, even just a piece of toast, usually just a few bites in my stomach cramps up and I have to stop eating. I get hungry at times, and want to eat, but when I try it is always with the same results....the cramping and nausea.

Anyone have any insite at all? Thanks!

Thanks!I have three children and all have been diagnosed with pyloric stenosis. My eldest who is nearly 5 was the worse projectile vomitting at two weeks old. My second son who is 3 and a half, and now my daughter just 12 weeks old. My first son suffered with very bad gastric reflux and had medication, he was only okay when on solids. My second had no reaccurance and my daughter is now suffering with what you are describing. She had suregery at 5 weeks old and suffered a little sickness but seemed to recover well. Now at 12 weeks she is on medication called domperidone for her vomitting (quite forceful) and can only drink 2 ounces of milk at a time because although she seems to be very hungry and wants to eat she is in agony & cramping up. She has about one bowl moverment a day so is not constipated.I have made enquires about whether the op may not be successful or have reacuurenece like the pyloric muscle thickening up again and the advice I have been given is yes it can happen. But I don not know in your case whether it happens later on or immediatle as for my daughter it is just 7 weeks after surgery.She is not getting better but worse, so they have talked about having an ultra sound scan or a berium mill as this is the only way it can be detected. Maybe you should make enquiries about having this done too as you symptoms describe the same but at different ages.I symphasise as I can only imagine what the hungry but cramping pains is like by listening to my daughter none stop screaming and the agonising pain on her little face.Theres no harm in getting yourself checked out, good luck & best wishesClare
