So for about 3 weeks ive had a bad problem with my stomach. After eating i get a terrible pain in my upper abdomen and it lasts for about 2-4 hours, most of the time I have to lay down until i fall asleep to get rid of it. The first day I remember having the pain was after i got my teeth worked on and got some motrin for the pain. I figured it was just from the motrin but i get it almost every meal now. I eat pretty healthy and am very active and fit. I have also had diarrhea on and off for the past 3 weeks with the last two days having it 4+ times in one day. I have noticed i dont have the pain in the morning after i drink a protein shake or after eating my over night oats but rather always around 2-3pm after eating lunch which mostly consists of grilled chicken, eggs, bacon, and broccoli or some combo of that. I have also noticed that i can eat some things later at night like a rice cake or pop tart and it not bother me. The pain is starting to get in the way of everyday activities and really get on my nerves as it radiates to both sides of my back. I never have pain even when running long distances in the morning until i eat in the afternoon. Thank you for any input you can share with me on this topic

    Hi dawson12160

    You mention you run long distances every day..do you do this for a long time each day and really run at an intense rate?..reason i ask this is because if you are running, which is an exercise, and really pushing yourself this can cause adrenal fatigue which can affect your digestive system.....

    Try a food diary to identify food triggers and cut out eggs and other dairy products.  Bacon is a greasy, processed food so I would avoid that too.  If no better after this, see your doctor.
