Does anyone else get a headache and shoulder pain after eating? Sometime accompanied by nausea too.
I know that blood pressure goes up after eating and I suppose it can impact CSF pressure.
I don't eat anything until after 11am and feel pretty good up until I eat. It happens after my evening
meal too...Gotta eat, a disconcerting symptom to say the least.
Hi Suzy...I wonder if it is a GERD issue and the fact u wait to eat until after 11AM u may have some bloating that occurs and affects ur vagus nerve....that along with the BP issue, it may be y u feel like this after u eat.....
U may want to try and eat more frequently but smaller meals to see if there is a change....
No GERD or bloating. I follow the lean gains diet because anytime I would eat breakfast in the morning I would be starving in 2 hours, no matter what I ate. Now I never get that hungry in the morning or any other time during the day. I eat very few wheat products and minimal sugar because they can cause me to bloat. I drink lots of water with my meals so I know I'm not dehydrated...
Was just curious to see if anyone else had that issue because it's a relatively new symptom for me.
I am pregnant but notice my stomach always feels empty, even when I've just eaten. Another symptom I get that freaks me out is after a rich meal (lasagna or tacos for example) I get shaky and weak and have to lie down I feel like fainting. I wondered if the vagus nerve causes this. It is a cyclical symptom for me, but very scary when it is present. Feels just like low blood sugar...but it is AFTER eating :/
Sounds like it is GERD issues as that can affect the vagus nerve and can happen if u eat spicy foods like tacos and acidic foods like lasagna.
The empty stomach feeling happens when we produce more acids then we need...so eat 4 to 5 meals a day, but small meals so there is food in ur stomach to use up the acids....it may help. Be mindful of ur food choices and keep the meals small so u do not gain too much weight...but this is suggested for those with GERD, and being pregnant will cause a flare as will having Chiari.

If your eating you bend your head forward that could be pinching your cord ect. and causing your Chiara pains. I ate with my plate elevated on the coffie table on top of a cooler today, It helped I think I will do it again next meal. My neck is sensitive right now. No surgury yet.
