It sounds familiar to me. Nausea after eating and feeling really full even when I hadn't eaten much - could easily last a couple of days. I had a positive coeliac blood test and stopped eating wheat. Am 100% better now
Yes, go to the GP. It does sound a bit like coeliac, so I would suggest a test. Although my coeliac child's vomiting is about 2 hours after eating gluten rather than immediately (when the gluten hits the small intestine).
Don't change your eating before you have a test as it will invalidate the results.
I've got similar symptoms PP and had them on and off since the summer - but they got worse in Sept/Oct but cleared up end October but are now back and I'm a bit worried. I know I should have seen GP but I don't like going there, and I keep thinking/hoping it will just go away but it doesn't. Never had anything like this before and yes my stomach hurts a bit before and after a bowel movement.
Just posted on another thread about constant nausea - be interested on what tests the GP does. Some people on the other thread have seen a GP but no one has mentioned an endoscopy (where they put a tube with a camera in down your throat) to see if there is anything wrong in the stomach. I had one a few years ago for acid reflux and it wasn't very pleasant but only lasted a few minutes. Mind neither is this feeling sick all the time very pleasant.
Make an appointment today Nina we will do it together, no need to feel afraid.
We will be able to support each other through any tests we need. What do you think? Don't leave it any longer, if you're feeling like I am it definitely needs to be seen about. It could be something very simple! Are you on any medication?
Hi PP - thing is I went to see my GP back in August (about something else - I'm quite old (70!) and was having dizzy spells and palpitations but she tested everything and said there was nothing wrong with my heart or lungs. However she gave me a form to have a blood test as I haven't had one for ages and I forgot all about it, and only had it done about 3 weeks ago. When the results were in, someone from the surgery phoned to say the GP wanted me to have another fasting blood test in 2 weeks and it's for "plasma glucose" so of course I googled and it's related to the possibility of diabetes. I am having the 2nd blood test on Thursday next week so I was waiting to see the result of that and if there's still a problem, she will want to see me and I can tell her about the nausea then.
Yes I'm on meds for depression and anxiety. I have intermittent depression (long story) and am on high doses of 2 different ADs. I changed one of them this summer and it has been very effective and I'm really worried that the nausea could be a side effect of this as it started about the same time. However if I have to choose between mental and physical illness, I'd go with the latter every time.
If the GP doesn't call me back (but I think she will as I've been worried about diabetes for a while - I'm overweight by about 3 stones mostly because of the effects of one of the ADs which is notorious for weight gain by slowing down metabolism) I will definitely make an appointment.
