Can't sit after eating.


I've had a strange problem for a long time. Lately, it's started to get much worse and anyone who can help or knows what might be wrong would be so much help to me.

Every time I eat, no matter what I eat, if I sit down I have pain in my stomach. If I stay seated, my muscles start aching, I become restless, I get extremely bloated, my stomach gurgles and a laundry list of other things.

I used to not be able to sit down for an hour or so after eating, but now it's as much as four hours. It's debilitating. I eat extremely well, and I've tried every diet imaginable- it really doesn't matter what I eat (can't stress that enough.)

Also, if I lie down as much as 6-7 hours after eating or I wake up every other hour in pain.

I would do anything to make this go away. Please help!

Re: Can't sit after eating.

It sounds like you are not digesting your food properly and why this is I don't know.
You should see your Dr as this should not be happening with everything you eat.
In the meantime you could try Gaviscon after each meal, also (Domperidone) is good for moving your food along instead of it lying around and causing discomfort.
Don't drink and eat at the same time, its a bad habit.
I still think you should get it checked out by your Dr, good luck, Solofelix.
