Lately, since I'm in an IBS flare I find some foods cause me to feel like the food is stuck and heavy in my stomach. For instance, I ate a hamburger (plain-no bun) and spinach last night and for hours I felt like this burger was at the top of my stomach. What gives? I'm a tiny person who eats small meals. Hate this feeling.Tania Posted Image

I think you should get an electrogastrogram and a gastric scintigraphy. Also, serum gastrin levels.
I am not a doctor, but utilize sources of information not readily available to the public. Some of this information may contradict what you think you know and some of it may sound harsh, but the information is what it is, and you got it here for free. I am just a messenger. Always consult a real doctor.

I'm NOT sure that you are going through what I went through...but I was always eating small meals because all of my food felt like it would stay at the top of my stomach and bloat me up and I sometimes had to throw-up just to feel any relief. About a week ago...I decided that I wanted to try a digestive aid to see if I wasn't digesting my food or something. Well, after just 2 days of taking the GNC enzyme digestant, I am NOT BLOATED AT ALL!!!! For the first time in months!!! I'm convinced that was the problem...the enzymes help you to digest food and carry it through you system along with gas too...I'm sooo excited...I just take one after each meal and I'm set!! Maybe you should try...I mean...there's no harm in it and if you have what I have maybe it will help you. I feel so good that I'm in shock!!! I don't feel sick, bloated or tired at all....yay!!!

This explanation makes no sense since digestion is irrelevant in the stomach. What might be happening is that somehow the enzyme alters the "normal" or perhaps abnormal hormonal response to a meal.

that's hilarious.Anyway...I just went by what my doc said. I guess the food is broken down faster or something. I don't care...i just know its working...when NOTHING else ever has.

I have the same type of symptoms. My doctor said that I just have a stationary upper intenstine, or something about how your stomach empities into your intestines every 6 mintues, and mine wasn't quite doing that, so he perscribed metoclopramide 30 minutes before meals. I didnt notice a difference, but I'm just saying maybe you have some type of 'gastrostasis' i think it was called. Good luckADRIA
