Re: 21 year old with bad digestive system. help..
If it's any consolation, I've been having stomach problems since I was 17, I am now 47 and they never got any worse. There are ways of managing it and if you are getting yourself stressed out over this, it is definitely making it worse. In some aspects I have actually improved because after all these years I know how to deal with the anxiety and stress that makes it worse. Sometimes just don't worry about what "they say" you eat. I get really bad if I eat fruit, I'll feel bloated and nauseated and I have thrown in the towel on eating it! - I am the best if I have a big Dunkin Donut with coffee, a nice big greasy Italian Hot dog, or some hot buffalo wings! So you have to be your own doctor. Maybe you are eating too many fruits and gassy things that are blowing you up. Some foods (let's take my Dunkin Donut and greasy Italian Hot dog), now if you had GALLBLADDER problems, that WOULD bother you. But if we are just talking the stomach here, then you really have to see what you yourself can tolerate the best. Now when you say you can't digest well, do you mean that you just aren't hungry anymore after that one meal? Or do you mean that you get an acid reflux and just keep burping the food back into your throat?
