Back in March, I had two episodes of this horribly upper abdominal pain after eating fast food (I had eaten fast food many times before without any bad symptoms). I was up all night with the worst pain ever right in my upper abdomen; I had diarrhea and I vomited several times and the pain would not go away. It lasted for about four hours and was constant and severe. I thought it might have been a reaction to dilaudid (I was taking that for other reasons), so I got off dilaudid. However, a few days later, I had a fry from Wendy's and the same thing happened. This time, I went to the hospital and they gave me maalox and the horrible stomach pain went away.

I have been eating very, very light for about four months now, but there are new symptoms since the episodes of pain and vomiting in March. I am now constantly full, and even if I eat a little bit, I feel so bloated and full. I have lost weight because of it.

What could this be? Are the episodes of pain and the fullness related? Is it a virus?

Any help is apprecited, I have a dance audition soon and I need to get better in order to get my strenght back up. I am afraid to eat anything spicy or even remotely spicy. I do NOT want to go through that awful pain again.

Thank you!!

  • I think it is due to heavy eating and that is why the whole problem is happening as, there are many things due to which you are facing this problem and it is very important for you to consult with a doctor so that he will help you in letting you know what is the problem you are facing and I think it might be a problem like due to eating junk food you are facing this problem as it gets stick to the intestine and results in fullness in stomach.Thankshttp://www.liferaftgroup.org/gist.html
