    Hungry every three hours

    For about 18 months now I have been getting hungry every three hours and have to eat. I eat full meals. I also start to burp a lot right before the hunger pains start. I have had blood work done and an X-ray of my stomach after drinking the chalky stuff. "don't know the correct term". everything is normal. No diabetes or hypoglycemia either. These are not mild hunger pains... It feels like I'm starving!! Can anyone help?

    Did you get your thyroid checked with the blood work?

    It's called a TSH.

    And the chalky stuff you swallowed sounds like a procedure called a Barium Swallow.


    It could be that you just have a fast metabolism. How old are you? Do you exercise?

    That is what happens to me when I have an ulcer bothering me. I have to eat so often because the pain makes me feel like I am hungry and when I eat for a short period of time it helps. I also burp alot during this time

    Did they say anything about Hyperthyroidism?

    Have you had an Endoscopy/Biopsy for H.Pylori, when I had this I also felt hungry but I also had an Ulcer so that's probably why.

    No, they said blood work would show any thyroid problem and nothing showed up.

    The pain is most likely not hunger pangs.

    Something else is causing the pain.
