Hungry after having a large meal?

Posted , 4 users are following.

HI! This all started at 3am. I began to feel hungry-sick. I then went down to the kitchen, ate a banana and had some crackers. I wasn't feeling better but i managed to sleep till 7am. I had dinner at 7:00 pm last night and it was an average size meal so I don't know why i felt hungry at 3am. Is this something that will go away or is it some type of infection/cold? It's christmas tomorrow so I want to enjoy the day. Any resolutions for this?

      Hi 2muchpain,

      I am not on any medications but i did have 1 sick tablet I forgot the name of. It is alarming because this same thing happened earlier this year when I had parainfluenza.

    Hmmm, is there any chance that you could have that again? Well, one good thing about Christmas being near is that if you continue to feel hungry, more than likely there will be plenty of food around. So just try to enjoy the good food, get through the holidays and then get on your doctor's schedule. It's going to be ok.

    If you had this sensation before when you had flu, maybe you have picked up the same infection again. Give it a week to see if you feel better. If not, see your doctor in the New Year.

    when you had this sensation before was it immediately with your parainfluenza or was when you started antibiotics? I am asking because antibiotics can cause gastritis (I have this) and I always feel hungry after eating with gastritis.
