Dull, significant pain after eating solid foods. In the morning, I am OK, but after my first meal, I get this pain. It has been this way for about 5 days. It is definitely not gas or indigestion.

Any thoughts? Thanks

Abdominal pain after eating usually originates from the stomach. If this has happened for the first time, you may try to relieve the pain and request a prescription for spasmolitic medicine (trospirum) and a H2-blocator (ranitidine). If this pain repeats for a longer period, you may perform a gastro-duodenoscopy to exclude a peptic ulcer or stomach cancer.
