Hi, I'm 27 and I have been having these symptoms for a good few months now although in the last few weeks they have got progressively worse.

After I have something to eat I have dffering symptoms, anything form having a hot flush, sweating, feeling bloated, abdominal pains, nausea, being physically sick, (this has come on in the last few weeks) prickly sensation to the skin- mainly face sometimes hands, coughing, feeling weak/dizzy/faint.

I also have bad wind which is very uncomfortable, sometimes crippling and is only eased by going to the toilet.

I have also found that if I skip ameal or leave more than 3-4 hours roughly between meals, i feel sweaty, shaky and extremely lightheaded, when I eat somehting after this, instantly feel better but then in the hour following I get all the symptoms mentionned above- sweating, feeling bloated, abdominal pains, nausea, being physically sick, (this has come on in the last few weeks) prickly sensation to the skin- mainly face sometimes hands, coughing, feeling weak/dizzy/faint etc.

I orginally went to my GP when symptoms first started and had a blood test for Thyroid problems and Diabetes, of which both came back fine.

I mentionned a possible food intolerance to my GP who dismissed it saying I don't have that, but unconvinced I tried to make a note of what I have eaten and what symptom it provides. The only correlation I can find is that when I take milk into my body I start to cough and feel like there is something like mucas in my throat/ on my chest, I sometimes cough so bad I feel I'm going to vomit but the more I cough the worse it seems to become. I also found a problem with popcorn, immediately after eating some I developped an uncomfortable stomach, with bad wind and my stomach bloats out so much I could pass as a few months pregnant. The abdominal pains feel like severe stabbing pains.

I presented this to my GP who bascially said that I have IBS, now as I understand it there are no tests to confirm IBS and it's something that is diagnosed after everything has been ruled out. I might have IBS who knows but I haven't been tested for anything else apart from what I've mentionned already, so I felt under the impression my GP just wanted a quick easy diagnosis.

I mentionned how I feel shaky and trembling between meals and how I feel flushed, aweaty and sick after eating and asked for some more tests to be done, but she was convinced it is IBS, even the vomitting which is happening more and more, IBS...

I'm not disputing that I may have IBS, after all she is the Doctor, but I feel t's more than that. When I originally went to the Doctors it took a few good visits for them to actually test me, the first Doctor I went to, said I had "chronic fatigue" I'm never unusually tired! and my current one said it was a normal reaction after you've been eating (???) It was only after constant visits and moanning I got taken seriously. Well, this doesn't feel normal to me! I can't tolerate alcohol at all one glass is enough to make me fel sick! I've never been much of a drinker anyway so I go out and drink soft drinks now, but after just a few pints of coke during the night, I came home and I couldn't stop vomitting.

I am getting to the point now where I feel like I'm never going to know what is wrong, I feel so neurotic about food, all I seem ot be eating at the moment is fruit, veg, fish and scrambled egg- no milk- and water as I am so scared of being sick or being ill. I was eating porridge oats and banana for breakfast but started feeling queasy after eating this too so just eat fruit. I have lost quite alot of weight and I do feel weak all the time but the weak feeling is better than the other symptoms. I just have no energy.

I am taking some peppermint tea capsules before eating, as recommended by GP for the IBS she is convinced I have, but they're not doing anyhting, I feel no better. Just wondering if there is anyone who has had similiar symptoms or knows what I am talking about.

Thanks for listening, I realise it was a long post but I had to put everything down.

Re: Sweating , Feeling Bloated , Abdominal Pains , Nausea
Hihi I actually suffered from the same symptoms months ago except that I don't vomit. Except I do feel nausea on and off. I thought it was some gastric or ibs problem until my condition has worsened and I kept passing gas uncontrollably...in the sense I don't even know it but smell something.

This led me to suspect it might be some bacterial infection..and I learn about yeast infection. It's like bacteria in my stomach tt keeps multiplying! I'm not sure if your condition. Coz your symptoms sound very much like mine in the early stage.After eating I feel better but 3-4 hrs later, I immediately feel weak,dizzy and wanna faint and so so tired everyday!
Yes sweaty palms 2. The bloating and stomach pains could be distension or probably gastric ulcers or something more...really depends.

I strongly encourage you to refer to a gastrointestional specialist to diagnose your condition. Or probably change one.=)
Many doctors gave me passing remarks. so yup! Hope I've helped.=)

Instead of taking 3 meals at a go per day, try cutting down into smaller meals and eat only the amount you can and feel like eating at the moment.Once u feel like u've hit the max, stop eating.=)

btw if you still feel very bloated, cut a few slices of ginger and boil with water at 100 degree celsius. After a little cooling, drink it without any add-ons at a comfortable warm temperature. The "spicier" or more slices you use, the more effective it is to reduce the "wind" in your stomach.
Try NOT to take antaacids pills or syrup as they might trigger "uncontrollable gas" in the long term effect.

As for the sharp pain, it is caused by large amounts of 'wind or gas" produced in your stomach and it can shift. Reducing the gas constantly will help u to feel more comfortable and not so painful.

Reduce carbohydrate and sugary foods as they cause gas production,hence making u feel more bloated.

You can try to google for topics on:
irritable bowel syndrome, inflammatory bowel syndrome,yeast connection,gas,intestinal gas

Take care!

With love,
Ying.

Perhaps you should seek out a naturopath who can steer you to a healthy outcome. Personally I needed to change my diet and I also incorporated a cleansing program 'colonix' by DrNatura. It got me on the right track and with the change in eating habits I cleared a lot of medical symptoms similar to yours. Make sure you check out every avenue and make an informed decision that is right for you. You will be the happier for it. Good luck and let us know what you are doing and how it is helping you.

Stomach Pain/movement
I have the same symptoms as you.The only difference is that I have pain that is so severe sometimes that i cant stand.Also I seem to be unable to pass gas.The strangest thing about my symptoms is that I feel movement in my stomach that you can also see from the outside.It really don't hurt itself it feel like a baby kicking or sometimes it happens for such a period of time its like a baby having hikups when your pregnant.I not pregnant and cant get pregnant, i have had a hystarectamy.I cant seem to get any answers on what this can be other than trapped gas,but the pain is so severe that it causes migrains ans sweats and most of the time i cannot walk.

well i wish you all the luck and hope you feel better soon and if you find something that works share the news.

You All need to read EAT RIGHT FOR YOUR TYPE. I swear by this diet!! I had the exact symptoms all of you are complaining of plus some. Stomach pains,gas, constipation, bloating, chronic sinus infections. Trust me, it is something you are putting into your body that is effecting it. It is not just a word or abbreviation (IBS). It is real. I am going to say that a majority of you are type O blood type (because that is the most common) and you cannot tolerate wheat or dairy. Find out what your blood type is and then read the book EAT RIGHT FOR YOUR TYPE. This problem affected me all through childhood into adolescence and it is debilitating. I look back and think about all I could have accomplished had I not had such severe food intolerances. I felt like I was dying at one point in my life and if I just stay away from wheat and dairy I am fine. It will take a little while to get it all out of your system because your body has a hard time digesting things that it cannot digest, but you should feel better and better as time goes on. Just find out what it is that your body doesnt want. I am telling you from experience, it is something you are eating and it is affecting you, but you can stop it because I did.

Gastroparesis
You should look into the possibility of gastroparesis, paralysis of the stomach. After you eat, particularly something fatty, you will start to feel nausea, sometimes vomiting. The shakiness you feel may come because your stomach finally starts to empty and at that point, you need food! Go back to your gastroenterologist and ask about this, sounds like it to me.

Prickling and Liver
Hi all,
I read all of your comments and I just want to tell you what happened to me. I got pregnant and in the 6th month after a surgery for my pregnancy the symptom of itching started. At first I thought it was something in the anesthesia or a food allergy or something. The itching just kept happening though no matter how I changed my diet. Even after the baby was born, I still had the skin crawling prickely feeling. A couple of months after my son was born I had a physical and my liver function values came up abnormal. I gained 70 puonds with my pregnancy due to bed rest and they thought that I could have fatty liver. I was sent to a liver specialist who just wanted to do a biopsy with needles but had no advice of how to get better with diet other than to loose weight which is nearly impossible for me no matter what I do. So I went to a naturopathic MD who put me on dandelion, probiotic, and milk thistle within one month. My liver vlaues were normal, my abdomen was about half the size, as in girth. I also had much less gas.

I still have the sweating and hot flashes before a bowel movement and I still take the same supplements. I am not sure that you all have this but I thought it was worth mentioning. Good luck everyone.

Auto Immune Disease!
Hello Onacloud,

I believe I know what you have. You most definitely have an Auto Immune Disease, most likely Chrohns which affects your stomach and small intestines, or maybe Ulcerative Colitis which affects your large intestine. At age 27 you are a prime candidate for these types of disease. If you schedule an appointment with a gastroenterologist they can prescribe Prednisone which is a steroid and can curb the symptoms of this type of disease, and then you can take some sulfa drugs to manage it. There is no cure for Auto Immune disease as it is relatively new type and needs more research. It is in my opinion that stress in your life can trigger this type of disease, so examine if you are stressed and you must do whatever you can to avoid stress. Also if you have ulcers either is your stomach or in your colon you will have blood present either when you vomit or pass stool. These are common indicators of Auto Immune disease. You said that you felt bad after eating popcorn. Popcorn is very acidic and can cause a severe reaction in your stomach if you have an ulcer. Also if your gall bladder is compromised you will feel nausea or sick after consuming fats. Try to avoid acidic foods, of which cola is also very acidic.

Check out websites relating to Chrohns or ulcerative colitis before thinking you have a food allergy...

Hello Lilcubbie30,

It is quite possible that you have a tumor that is big enough to push on your colon which could possibly cause your symptoms. The kicking could be trapped gas trying to squeeze by the tumor resting on your colon. The intense gastric pressure would cause severe disabling pain. You should present this possible scenario to your doctor...

Johnnyd10111,

Sounds like another case of Auto Immune disease if symptoms persist beyond a month. Most likely if you are passing blood with your stool you will get anemic and this will make you feel very weak and kind of out of it sometimes.

If these sypmtoms have been occuring for only a few days now I would suggest that you have the stomach flu and these symptoms should go away in a week or two. If you feel like throwing up then you should, it might help. Eat prunes and drink lots of water.

My symptom reliever and hope
Hi, I am a 23 year old male, I'm very skinny for my height and have always been an active person. I have been dealing with a similar problem on and off for around 5 years. (Skip to the end 2nd paragraph if you want to know my way of temporarily relieving these problems)

At certain times of the year, after I eat very little amounts of food I get nautious and sick and cannot eat anymore. The symptoms include nausea, tight throat, loss of feeling in my hands, and sometimes goosebumps. I have been to many specialists and have had my stomach and intestines checked. There seemed to have been nothing wrong. But for some reason this problem won't go away, it seems to be recurring.

My family doctor claimed that it may be gastroparesis but the medicine did not seem to help. As a result, my doctor recommended a psychiatrist. I went to him for about a year and a half and the symptoms seemed to have lessened and went away. However, the symptoms for me were reoccurring, and I do not believe it is psychologically linked to stress.

I personally don't believe it is linked to stress because the symptoms seem to occurr when I'm the healthiest and when I have time for exercise. This has lead me to nowhere so far for 5 years with dealing with my sickness.

However, I have recently found a diagnosis online that seem to fit most of my symptoms, called Exercise-induced Anaphylaxis. It seems like a stupid idea to me, being allergic to exercise, since one would think that exercise is good for a person.

What made me read further about this problem is the note that a HOT SHOWER seems to make the nautious symptoms go away. Which has always been a big symptom reliever for me. It may be linked to just relaxing, but it seems to me that the warmth to the core seems to make a difference for some reason. To test my symptom relieving theory further, when I was sick, I tried using a hair dryer to warm up my chest (with all my clothes on and blowing into my shirt) and to my surprise, the symptoms seemed to have gone away similar to a shower...

I do not understand this problem and neither do any specialist or doctors I have been to. This idea of warming my core is new to me after reading about exercise-induced anaphylaxis and linking with a hot-shower and I am planning on visitng my family doctor for more information and possibly rule out any food allergies. After so many years, I'm tired of being sick and do not believe it is a psychological problem, because I seem to get sick when I am happy and relaxed, with time to exercise and not as my doctor believes in his own mind. Hopefully my trick helps people feel better after meals without having to awkwardly shower after every meal. Although I seemed to have stalled the nautious feelings, I still don't know the root problem! Good luck to all of us to be healthy and eating normally.

Stomach ulcers/colon cancer
Welcome to the world of doctor shopping! I started with a sharp pain in my left side whe I rolled over one night. That was 7 or 8 years ago. Ruled out appendicitis since they were taken out. What could it be? Since I'd had an ovarian cyst which felt similar in pain I decided to start there. Did all the tests and came up with nothing. Isn't it amazing though. So the next woman I saw I asked for a blood test. Again, I asked. I also requested a specific ovarian cancer marker although for all I know a cancer marker finds cancer no matter what sort you've got. But I'm used to dealing with doctors so I was specific. Had the blood test and the nurse informs me there was no cancer marker requested. That's after I'd driven 200kms for the doctors appointment, then 200 for the results of the blood test then another 200kms to see her again to ask why. She informed me that she doesn't routinely request cancer markers. I told her I had specifically asked for it (why should I have had to) and since my pain wasn't ovarian cysts, how was I to rule out ovarian cancer without the test. Hang on, who's the doctor here. Aren't they supposed to rule it out. I stormed out. It was like "how dare you tell me how to do my job". Isn't it funny how thousands are dying every year of stomach cancer but somehow none of those went to a doctor complaining of pre-cancer symptoms prior to having full-blown cancer diagnosed? None of them had a history of candida albicans or Helicobacter Pylori infection or stomach ulcers. Are you kidding me? These poor people are just like me, trudging from doctor to doctor with pain in their guts and not getting help. So then I got a referral to a gastroenterologist and after the colonoscopy, he told me he had found no polyps or anything to indicate that I had colon cancer. As I was coming out of the anaesthetic he said "there could be several reasons for your stomach pain". With that, he turned and left. Obviously paying $500 wasn't enough to find out what those 'several reasons' were. Am I finding any common ground here, yet? Well, let me tell you, I've still got the pain four years on with reflux, bloating, flatulence, putrid breath, fatigue added. I've just received a bowel cancer testing kit seeing that I just turned 50 so I'll send a little sample in so that they can finally tell me I have bowel cancer! Bet they only test for blood in the faeces, bet they don't test for H. Pylori infection to see if I have the lead-up to bowel cancer so we can actually stop the thing in its tracks. Maybe we should all become better actors and go in gripping our stomachs, writhing in agony. Good luck with it!

Respone to first post
I would highly suggest you see a GI doctor, then I would recommend you try to get a colonoscopy to make sure you don't have Crohns or Ulcerative Colitis. They can also perform a scope of your stomach to make sure you don't have severe stomach ulcers. If those results come back negative and you don't have either of those problems, then it will most likely be a bacterial infection that requires anti-biotics. If you have a blood test done and provide stool and urine samples, they can also test for any serious illnesses that way as well. Hope you feel better.

I am feeling very discouraged. I vomit and have a runny stool everyday. I have been diagnosed with IBS by a stomach doctor. I have tried many IBS meds and they don't work. I do not think that is it. All the tests they do comeback negative. I have tried everything for nausea and nothing helps. I also have been fainting. I also have severe stomach cramping as well. I lost my college scholarship due to always being in the ER or doctors office. I can't take it anymore. I have not eaten anything in weeks because it makes my vomiting worse. I want my life back. Can someone give me any ideas?

RE: Feeling sick...
Go see a GI doctor, and ask for a colonoscopy. Do you have any bleeding in your stool? Have you provided any stool samples to your doctor for tests? The other thing you can try is to restrict your diet and try to figure out which foods may agitate you. Avoid eating spicy foods and milk and see if that help. Hope you feel better Smile

stomac pain and flush feelings
i have the same thing but mine s not so often it comes and goes. normaly it happens most in the eirly morning when i wake up or when it is really hot out side. it usaly cools of toward the afternoon. i dont know why we have this problem but i faoud the best way to stop the stomac pain for me at least is to stay away from the gassy foods, as popcorn, tomato paste, penuts, orange juice, so mostly the aciddy and oilly foods. another thing is i have to eat somthing in the mornnig cold to like wake my stomac up cuz if not ill feel sick. also when you have the gas feeling in the stomac just cheew a rolaid it usaly helps relive the pain some. if you get the hunger pains i found it better to have somthing with you always that will put somthing small in the stomac when you have the pain, it dont take alot of food to take the hunger pain away it just needs somthing for your stomac to eat on rather than the linning of you stomac, just somthing with bread works good cause its filling.
