Stomach Hurts When Empty

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?

    • Italian pasta
      Get some celiac travel cards to print off and keep in your wallet.  Present them to your waiter.   http://www.celiactravel.com/cards/ Tell the airline that you need a gluten free meal, BUT take food with you because odds are the airlines will make a mistake.   As far as the wheat pasta.....some folks say the wheat is different.  I personally think they are kidding themselves.  There is no scientific proof that I have found to support this theory.  (Anyone want to present such data?)  Italy, from what I heard is great for celiacs.  I'll know for sure this summer!  I'll be there!   As usual, we plan on bringing some packable food, but we are good at shopping at grocery stores for food and picnicking when traveling.  I expect foods at grocery stores to be clearly marked as they were in Great Britain since they are part of the EU.  
    • Villous atrophy with negative tTG IgG/IgA, high Gliadin IgA!
      It looks like you have a few options that you need to consider pursuing: 1.  Get back to your doctor and tell him to figure out what's wrong with you.  Take a friend because it helps to have someone listen and take notes who is not the patient.  Get copies of all lab reports and doctor notes always and keep a file on yourself to share with future doctors or to monitor your progress.   2.  Ditch this GI and get a new one (SIBO is real per my celiac savvy GI).  Take a friend with you.   3.  You say you are lactose intolerant.  Experiment by going lactose free for six months -- not just a few days.  This will help to promote healing and help determine if milk (lactose or proteins) are causing villi damage and not gluten. 4.  Recognize that some celiacs test NEGATIVE to antibodies.  Per Dr. A. Fasano and Dr. Murrary, based on their clinincal experience and recent data just published, they estimate that 10 to 20 percent of celiac disease patients test negative to the serology screening test. That means consider yourself a celiac and stop your gluten intake for at least six months.  Normal vitamin and mineral levels do not rule out celiac disease.   5.  Recognize that you can multiple reasons for villi damage.  That's why a second consult with a celiac savvy GI is important.   Good luck!    
    • Continued Symptoms
      Try keeping a food and symptom diary.   She could have allergies or intolerances.  But, again, I am not a doctor!  I am healed from celiac disease, but I still react to certain foods and have allergies.  Those will probably never go away as I have been plagued with them all my life (as my siblings have too).  She could have a milk protein intolerance and not just lactose.  Eliminate all dairy too see if it helps.   Speech really normalizes by the age of 8.  I can not say if your public school will evaluate her.  My home-schooled friends are still monitored by the state and receive state funding.  So, I would assume they would receive all the same benefits.  Try calling.  
    • Weeks in and feeling no better
      Let me tell you that based on what people post on this forum, it takes MUCH longer to heal.  In theory,  it should just take a few week on a gluten diet to promote villi healing.  Your body is constantly regenerating new cells in your gut on a daily basis.    Why the delay?   First,  it takes a long time to really master the gluten free diet.  So, in the beginning, dietary mistakes are often made which can delay the healing time.  Second,  celiac disease is an autoimmune disorder triggered by gluten causing a "flare-up" which can be measured by the level of antibodies in your system.  Antibodies can take weeks, months or years to come down.   Third,  there's the type of damage done to your body to consider (e.g. bone damage, depleted iron levels).  Usually anything neuro takes much longer to heal. Has your doctor checked you for nutritional deficiencies?  If not, ask.  You might be really low on a vitamin or mineral.   You could be low on digestive enzymes (actually they can not be released in a damaged gut).  So even when eating gluten free foods, your body is not digesting and absorbing the necessary nutrients.  You could help the healing process by taking gluten free supplements and enzymes.   But it is best to see what you are actually deficient in.   Most of these deficiencies resolve with time. Finally, my parting words of wisdom (as passed on by many of our members), is patience.  I know.  Hard to be patient when you want to feel well, but it will happen.   Hang in there!  
    • Gluten and panic attacks
      Now if everyone out there who probably has a gluten problem adopted your attitude, they would be having a much better life.  After over 10 years gluten-free myself, who really cares about gluten pizza? I go months without gluten free pizza, which is very good by the way, and I am not an emotional wreck.  Imagine!  Glad you feel better and yes, it was the wheat!

      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.

      Hello! I am new to this Celiac website... Is there anyone out there with Celiac AND extensive food allergies? My allergies include shellfish, dairy, eggs, cantaloupe, kiwi, mango, nuts, oranges, red dye, and more I can't think of. I went to the allergist about a year ago to see why I wasn't feeling well, and once everything was eliminated, I still didn't feel well. We did more testing to find out I had celiac as well as allergies to cattle as well as rye grass (I live on a farm basically). This was back in January 2016. I recently had my endoscopy with the gastroenterologist a week ago. I have no idea what to do or what to eat... So fish and potatoes for me!
