Why can't I eat in the morning without getting sick?

I've had this "problem" if you want to call it that, ever since sometime when I was in high school. If I get up in the morning and am not absolutely starving, and I eat anything within an hour or so of being up, doesn't matter if it's a banana or a plate of bacon & eggs, it makes me sick. I'm talking big time stomach cramps and diarrhea. Occasionally there will be an exception, but 95% of the time that is what happens; sometimes I will even get up and actually feel hungry, and eat something, and I will start getting stomach cramps a short time later.

I guess I'm mostly curious as to what would cause this sort of thing?

Re: Why can't I eat in the morning without getting sick?

maybe you should just wait until over an hour before you eat anything. Maybe your body just can't tolerate food early like that. I'm just guessing, but it seems like that is very possible. You said since H.S. but you don't say how old you are NOW -if this was just happening for a few months to a year, I guess you should tell a doc., however if you are like over 30 or something and it's been going on for YEARS, it's probably just your system and the way it reacts to food so early in the morning. You also could have IBS, eating does stimulate the bowels, and does it more so in people with IBS.

Re: Why can't I eat in the morning without getting sick?

Sorry I forgot to mention that I'm 25. Been like this for years really.

Generally I do avoid eating in the morning...actually, I don't even attempt to eat anything usually. Most days I'm up and out of the house within 15-20 minutes. Sure does make it easier to get out of the house quick

My dad told me he could never eat breakfast, he has plain oatmeal every morning, apparently that's the only thing he can eat early. I don't really know.

Re: Why can't I eat in the morning without getting sick?

I(f you raise the head of your bed 3 or 4 inches stomach acids would not settle in your stomach but pass on.
I think by sleeping flat causes too much acid in the mornings.
Worth a Try??

I sleep with two pillows, wouldn't that be enough of a "rise?"

ghunt,
No --- Sorry pillows don't work -- it is not your head that needs raising it is from your waist up to your mouth--- that includes stomach and esophagas.

It is a common thing to do with people that have GERD.
I just use a piece of 4x4--- been doing it for 25 years. But, you can buy bed stands.

I wish you well--- It'll work~~~Harry
