Difficulty eating normal sized meals.

Posted , 3 users are following.

I've had this problem pretty much all my life as far as I know. Whenever I eat a hamburger( like a big hamburger from a nice restaurant) I'll get like half way and it starts getting difficult to even bite into it with getting a head ache and feeling like I'm about to throw up. It's not like I'm full, I usually end not being able to finish my meal and filling up on something more bland. It happens with pretty much any meal with a lot of flavor. They only things that I can eat non stop is like rice, bread, and other grains.

    That's classic symptoms of gastritis when your tummies inflamed it can't take flavours sauces etc bland things are easier on it hense why u can eat bland things easier. Could also be caused by h pylori a bacterial infection that lives in the stomach lining.

      Of course you should. If it's h pylori (which causes ulcers) they can give a combo of drugs that killsthe bacteria  and you'll be fine. If it isn't that the doctor will probably be able to identify what the problem is.

      No it's not serious but if left untreated can get worse and lead to ulcers. You can get a breathe test for the h pylori and an endoscope would be good idea too to look at tummy. Are you taking anything that would irritate stomach like anti inflammation or steroids coffee a lot of stuff can irritate stomach but sounds like h pylori. Antibiotics will clear it all up.

      Also does this just happen with sauces as you could have allergy to something in them if you've had 4 so long hense headache. In this case you need to get food allergy test s to find out what it is then all you need to do is avoid the offending food.

      Lots of health clinics do this type of testing through hair etc just type into net n somewhere near you should pop up.

    Forgot to mention you should also stick to bland foods avoid sugar dairy gluten until gastritis clears up n maybe go on ppi to block off acid until stomach heals.

    Let us know how u get on.

    Good luck.
