8 hours after eating a large dinner, or one with more fat than normal, I awake with vuague feelings of discomfort. Not pain in any way, but am aware of lots of gurgling from digestion, heart rate at around 85, and feeling hot. If I get up or turn over can release a burp, that sometimes allows back to sleep. No pain, just feeling of fullness, this and heart rate usually keeps me awake for an hour or two, before can sleep again.
Am 56 years, male, correct average weight and build. I checked through Diagnosis - gall stones, gall bladder, pancreas etc., but zero pain, so discounted. My regular medical blood test has always shown an above average bilirubin, am concerned that liver is faulty? Easy not to eat large meals but want to know if underlying problem.
