Does anyone have a problem digesting red meat specifically hamburger?

I ate a hamburger last (no bread) night and shortly after finishing my ab started pulsating.

My wife said it felt like a baby kicking. It lasted until i went to sleep.

It actually got sort of violent a few times, making me jump. It was like i could feel

it traveling through me all the way. Very strange, never happened to me before.

I ate a steak the other night and didn't have any issue.

Did it have soy in it? Soy hamburgers do that to my stomach.

Could have been cross-contamination, but otherwise I don't have any insight.

did u say- "already made patties" ?? but NOT the ones in the box? so the meat dep. people made them?

cause i was gonna add that those ones in the boxes- or the premade burgers that MOST restaurants serve now- give me the worst stomach ache- they're so bad quality- that they have to overcook them- im assuming they're made of "factory beef" meaning they come from the few factories in america with thousands of cattle in one burger- they totally kill my stomach- and i avoid them at all cost.

but if you got it freshly ground/premade at the store- then they should be better. unless you yourself like your burgers pretty well-done. when beef is well-done or over done- they're really hard to digest. red meat is much easier to digest if done medium rare or medium.

I have trouble digesting meat too. After I eat meat my tummy rumbles and it feels like a baby is inside kicking. I can put my hand on my stomach and it bops and hops around. I probably eat beef once every 3 or 4 months.

I changed over to turkey burger instead. The grease from regular burger is hard on my stomach. Symptoms just like what that person above posted. When they make premade burger patties, they put seasonings which often have wheat and maltodexrin in them. Not good. They also use the fattiest meat because it grills up better as well. Try making your own home made burger from 93% lean and try the turkey burger as well. I bet that will help you greatly. Watch out for seasonings too. They have hidden ingredients.

    • I can definately identify with this. I half-laughingly refer to myself as an 'elder orphan'.   I can't afford anything like a secret santa but would love the opportunity to exchange holiday cards with others here.  It is comforting in a way to realize that I am not the only person who is isolated but kind of sad to know that there are others in the same boat. When I talk to folks with large close extened families who endlessly complain about them I just want to slap them sometimes.
    • Yes IELs can be linked to other things. However, increase in IELs, loose stools, and a good response to a gluten free diet would point to celiac.  Celiac panels vary lab to lab and not all labs run all of the tests so you might want to post here after you get your results. My brother was negative to the labs run but they failed to run the DGP test in him (which I have tested positive on before). He is a biopsy confirmed celiac.  Thyroid issues can give you the runs, and lipase can indicate how well your pancreatic and gallbladder system is working, both can also cause tummy issues. Both issues are also common in celiacs as mentioned by others. Sounds like you have a great doc.  Last, my initial last biopsy was read by a hospital pathologist to be increase in IEL. The slides were read by a celiac specialist at that same hospital after they were re-cut (don't ask, I have no idea) and read Marsh 2-3A damage with areas of normal villi.   
    • Hi Benjamin and welcome You've found a good site. Everyone above has given you good advice I just wanted to reinforce this point from Ravenwoodglass: Some people (like me), test negative for celiac but still have a problem with gluten. This is called Non Celiac Gluten Sensitivity and is not a well known or understood condition. Suffice to say if you do test negative, you shouldn't assume that gluten is fine for you, it may well not be. Best of luck! Matt
    • You're welcome I don't think any doctor should be too reluctant to request a blood test if you set things out for them in the right way. You have symptoms consistent with celiac/gluten sensitivity, you have anecdotal evidence (your positive reaction to going gluten free). So you have a good case.  If and when you get some tests scheduled you will have to go back on gluten. This can be rough. It helped me to come on here and document how I was feeling. Support from here helped me get through the challenge period. So do come back on if your doing the challenge.
    • I agree that you should keep eating gluten and get tested if you can.  The reason for the increase in symptoms after being gluten free is the antibodies flaring in response to you injesting what your body doesn't want you to consuming.  Your body is letting you know in no uncertain terms that gluten is not something it wants.  You don't have to consume a lot of gluten for testing. A couple slices of bread worth is enough.  There is a chance with most of your issues sounding like they are neuro related for a false negative. After testing you should IMHO go back to being strictly gluten free no matter what the results. Keep in mind that many doctors consider celiac to be a solely GI problem and won't test if you don't have gastro issues.  Sounds like your body is giving you the answer but a formal diagnosis can be helpful with family members and freinds taking the condition as seriously as you need to take it.
