Please help, When I get out of bed in the morning, I have a full feeling in my stomach like I am six months pregnant, I feel like I have been working out because my muscles feel tight also, and I can hardly breathe. Is anyone out there going through this? I can hardly eat because I am always feeling full, like I have ate 6 or 7 meals at an all you can eat buffet.

Unfortunately, I cannot offer a diagnosis based simply upon the description that you have provided. There are multiple potential causes of early satiety (feeling full very quickly when eating), and so I would recommend that you be referred to a GI doctor, especially if you are also losing weight.

You may require that a scope be placed into your stomach (through your mouth) to assess your esophagus, stomach, and duodenum (first part of the small intestine).
