You might also want to consider a digestive enzyme before eating to help. Have you been checked for lactose intolerance? Or do you react to any dairy? Perhaps it was the ricotta cheese in the pasta.
I've noticed a few times now that if I eat a heavy dinner (i.e. pasta) or eat a bit too much at dinner and feel really full afterwards that I don't start getting an "attack" until a few hours later. <BR><BR>Last night I had spinach & ricotta filled ravioli around 5:30-6:00pm and then a bread roll around 7:30-8:00pm. By the time I went to bed at 8:30pm I was feeling pretty full and my guts were growling like crazy (even though I was sitting up reading not lying down) and they didn't quit for about 30-45 minutes. I eventually went to sleep around 9:30pm and then woke up an hour later feeling quite sick with an acidic taste in my throat. I got a hot water bottle to ease the nausea and settled back into bed about an hour later.<BR><BR>This has happened a few times now; I usually wake 4-5 hours after I've eaten dinner feeling full or sick. I also suffer GAD (generalised anxiety disorder) and emetophobia (fear of vomiting) so waking up feeling sick usually spirals into a full on panic attack. <BR><BR>Does anyone else find it takes a few hours after eating to feel the effects? I'd always thought a bad reaction to food was quite instant. Could this be related to IBS or more to my anxiety/panic attacks & depression?<BR><BR>Thanks for your advice guys

I was a pack of Rolaids a week and, even so, waking up at 3 am with a sour stomach. Gave up drinking, eating tomatoes, spicy food, lots of stuff. No help. Then I went to China for 3 weeks brought (PLENTY of) Rolaids... But I didn't need them! Ate and drank everything they gave me (including snake soup and horse-penis whiskey). Still no heartburn! I was thrilled.
Came back to the US and within two days, it was back.
Realized in China they don't eat much wheat so I gave up wheat. It worked. I don't think it's a gluten intolerance because I can eat a little bit now and then with no severe effect. I'm suspecting that it's gliadin - google it if you're interested.
Anyway, I've been off wheat - with a little few exceptions - for about two months now. The exceptions do cause a little heartburn, but the Boston Creme Pie is worth it.
This morning, though, I went all out and had a big, fat, bagel at 12 noon. 4pm the heartburn starts and I'm wondering why it takes 4 hours. This post suggests that it's when the food gets digested.
Anyway, want to share my store in case anyone's interested. Comments appreciated.

I also went to China in the Fall. I became ill several times in the trip..probably due to the water....not the food. I also decided to try a gluten free and lactose free diet when I returned. I have had good results...but I'm human and have had a big piece of cake and a bagel or part of a hamburger bun now and then.....and can pinpoint the cause of a BAD day to one of those slips.
For me, Omeprazole has stopped the heartburn, but also suffered with that for years.
After all the years I've had IBS, I would think I could have this diet thing mastered....but I don't.
