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?

    • glutened by lays potato chips?
      I ate some baked lays last night and felt very sick all night and haven't been feeling great all day today. Other than that I didn't eat anything different from what I normally eat and there was no risk of cross contamination with anything.. These were the only thing I had that was different. They're labeled gluten free so I figured it would be okay, but I started feeling sick pretty soon after eating them. I'm not sure if it's another ingredient in them or what (and i know it's not the soy).. Has anyone else had a reaction to lays potato chips?
    • Symptoms In Toddlers?
      Welcome Ashley! Here are the current tests.  The DGP versions seem to work a bit better than the TTG in small children.  So, ask for the complete panel (and get it all in one stick....my 15 year still hates to get blood drawn ! http://www.cureceliacdisease.org/screening/ Your doctors are wrong!  They must be reading old medical text books.  Not all kids or people have failure to thrive!  You can even be symptom free!. I was anemic and had no intestinal issues when I was diagnosed.  celiac disease affects everyone differently and that's probably why so many folks are not diagnosed. Your kids (parents, siblings too) should be tested every few years (sooner if symptoms develop) per all the leading celiac researchers/doctors if a first-degree relative has celiac disease (like you!)  celiac disease can develop at any age! Hope this helps!   
    • amalgam dental fillings - remove or not?
      Do you have celiac disease?  This is a celiac forum and that's what we are most knowledgeable about. http://www.cureceliacdisease.org/screening/ Amalgam fillings do not have lead that I know.  What you read was probably mercury.  You could have them removed, but only by a dentist who has the knowledge and skill.   I think you need to do some more research so that you can make an informed decision. I wish you well. 
    • Newly diagnosed and totally overwhelmed
      Welcome! Go ahead and rant!  Scream and holler!  Weep.  It is totally normal to go through a grieving process.  We have all been there!  You are NOT alone! When you pick yourself off the floor, start researching.  Learn about the gluten free diet.  Start with easy-to-digest foods that are naturally gluten free (meat, fish, veggies, fruit, etc.).  You may have to give up dairy for a short time until your villi heal (the villi tips release enzymes that help digest lactose (milk sugars).  Skip all the processed foods until you are improving.  That will give yourself time to forget what bread really tastes like.  Avoid eating out for a few months -- it's easy to get cross contamination.  Best to explain your gluten-free needs when you, yourself, "get it".  Read our Newbie 101 thread under "Coping" for valuable tips.   You can go out and drink with your friends.  You might have to avoid alcohol for a few months.  But when healed you can drink!  Just no beers, malted beverages.  Most distilled liquor (e.g. volka) is gluten free.   So, is wine.  Skip the gluten free beer for a long time.   Find other celiacs in your area.  In the meantime, visit with us.  It does get better.        
    • amalgam dental fillings - remove or not?
      Hi everyone, I'm going through some health issues right now and when searching for possible causes of my symptoms and blood test results, I see lead poissoning popping up quite a few times. Now, I have many amalgam fillings in my mouth since childhood, so naturally I'm thinking if that might play a role and if removing them would make a difference. But from what I read online removing the amalgam fillings is not recommended and does not bring any health benefits. I have mixed feelings about this issue and would really appreciate some advice. Thanks in advance for any comments. Greetings from Mexico. :-)

      Hello cycling lady, have you noticed my picture is showing up as you?  Have no idea why but it's rather disconcerting to see my picture and your words 😉  Do you know how to fix it?  You seem to have far more experience with this board than I do

      Hi There, I don't know if there is a place for videos in the forum. I just watched "The Truth About Gluten" I think it is a good video. I would like to share it somewhere but don't know where it should go. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
      Here is the link if you have never watched it.
