Stomach Hurts When Empty
0

4 posts in this topic

It seems like when i dont eat for a couple of hours my stomach will get boated feeling and really tender. Does anyone get this. I always have a little tenderness in the uppr right area just under the ribs, andto the right of my sternum. Why is this always tender (1 year). Every once in a while, it goes away for a day and comes back. I also have loose stools off and on. Could i have a little infection that i should get tested for (parasite test, bacteria test, etc)? Your thoughts please!

one word, gallbladder. go to your doctor asap. Does it hurt after you eat? Upper right quadrant, right under your rib cage? thats your gallbladder, the pain in your back after you eat? That's your gallbladder. Pain usually means something is wrong. Especially if the symptoms get worse after you eat something fattening, or something greasy or cooked in oil........(Your stomach is further towards your left side, and higher up.)

As gfcookie wrote it is a good idea to have your gall bladder checked out. But at the same time you can go online and read about how your gall bladder works and read about liver cleanses and gall bladder flushes. Learning to do gall bladder flushes might save you from loosing your gall bladder later on. Yes you can easily have an infected gall bladder when the food is not going through you smoothly. This causes the partly digested food to back up and shoves a lot of bacteria up your bile duct and sometimes into your pancreas too. This stuff also backs up into the stomach and causes irritation which can make you feel hungry. I can get my stomach to empty by massaging the area just below the sternum. I can tell when it empties because I get a feeling of relief and the stomach ache goes away.

When I get what you describe I often eat 1/2 a fresh grapefruit after a meal. This helps the gall bladder release bile which contain degestive enymes.

I worked in laboratories for years and had a specialty in parasitology. It is well known that laboratory tests for parasites are very poor, they just don't pick them up. We all have parasites just like our ancestors did even though we have a cleaner environment. They are natural to us and very adaptable so they persist, though we rarely notice them. Our ancestors cleaned out the parasites from their bodies routinely and felt better for it. We don't do this anymore. There are many herbal preparations on the market that would help you clear out your parasites but I think that it's best to have a naturopath or somebody trained in in doing this to advise you. Medical doctors are not trained to do this even though the Center for Disease Control sent out a warning a while back that people had more parasites that had been commenly thought. Parasites can be affecting your health, and you could have some varieties that get in your gall bladder, pancreas and intestines.

Thanks for your advice. I see my ND on tuesday and i am planning on talking to her about these issues. Thanks. Do you know of a simple liver/gallbladder cleanse?

    • Mnoosh,    Can you give us a link to the article you read about the increased risk after being diagnosed and maintaining a strict gluten-free diet??       IMO,   You are over reacting to a misprint or most likely a misread article.
    • Yes!  With dairy, celiacs can often have a temorary lactose intolerance due to damaged intestinal villi (where the enzymes normally are released to digest lactose).  Of course you could be naturally lactose intolerant based on race or age.  It is best to stick to a whole foods diet while you are healing.  Really, is ice cream or potato chips going to provide you with nutritional value?  Stick with naturally gluten free foods like meat, fish, fats,  veggies (even those with carbs like sweet potatoes or winter squash) and fruit.  Avoid that processed junk as you may react to the additives right now.  Later, you can add back in dairy (test) and other foods you miss and crave.   Good luck!  
    • Take a deep breath and calm down!    The incidence of cancer with Celiac Disease is rare.......it can happen but the vast majority of people never have that experience.  You may have somewhat enlarged lymph nodes due to inflammation from undiagnosed Celiac but that will all calm down and go away once you get going on the diet.  Believe me, there are many of us that have things happen during the diagnosis and early recovery period and everything turned out just fine.  There is an elevated risk for some cancers with Celiac but that risk goes back to that of the general population after a couple of years on the gluten-free diet. I cannot remember the exact time frame but it is somewhere between 2-4 years, I think.  So many of us went years without a diagnosis and when it was all figured out, we have gone on to be healthy with little complications.  Really...do  not worry about this.  Concentrate on learning all the ins and outs of this disease and how to live gluten free happily.  We are here to help you and guess what? The diet is not as bad as some make it out to be. Many things can be made gluten free and are every bit as good as their gluten counterparts. The diet may not be convenient but it is not hard. I would not lie to you!   
    • Well....one common symptom that most celiacs have when they are diagnosed (or undiagnosed) is anxiety.  So, there is a risk of cancers, but science has demonstrated that that risk goes down on a gluten free diet (if you have celiac disease).  In goes down to the same risk as those without celiac disease.   I kind of was a basket case.  I drive my family a bit crazy because I was anxious.  I felt a bit stupid too.  I guess I had a little brain fog going on too.  All that resolved after I healed. Welcome to the fourum.  Read our Newbie 101 thread under "Coping" (pinned at the top of the page) and learn about hidden sources of gluten and cross contamination.  I think most of us do not worry about cancer. We mourn the freedom to eat anything anywhere!   I did not have swollen lymph nodes, but I am sure others have and they did not have cancer.  Hopefully, they will chime in and set your mind at ease.  If not, you can search for "lymph nodes" at the top of the page (little magnifying glass).  There are lots of members with the same issue!  
    • I was recently diagnosed as having celiac and to be honest the part I'm having the most trouble with isn't the change in food or lifestyle. I'm really upset about what I've read about the risk of cancer increasing with celiac disease. I think this is playing into my fears because I currently have lymph nodes all over my body-my Doctor says they are not considered swollen or concerning, but I don't usually feel nodes. The lymph nodes and horrible diarrhea for the last 3 weeks were what got me into the the doctor for lab work. My blood work came great so I'm wondering if anyone else experienced lymph nodes reacting when they found out they were celiac? Also how do you deal with anxiety surrounding the increased risk of cancer? Thanks!
