Not Digesting, Fodd "sitting" at the top of my stomach......

Hi everyone!

any help is much appreciated. OK, everytime I eat something, it just feels like it is sitting at the top of my stomach. I never get that full feeling of it going to the lower part of my stomach. Now it seems that food is bothering my lower back. I am very uncomfortable standing for too long or laying on a certain side, depending on the day.

Most of this happens after lunch time. I hate to even think about eating dinner, because I know the food will just stay put. Very bloated feeling. The mornings are not too bad, just as the day goes on. Every once in a while just a little bit of heartburn.

I hope there is some advice as it is really becoming painful and annoying.

Thanks so much!

Thanks Elisa. After doing a lot of reading and searching today, at least maybe I have a place to start and suggest to my Dr. I have seen that people are having a hard time getting diagnosed - so I am hoping, again , that this will help.

Thanks for your time.
