For almost a year I have had off and on nausea and feeling way too full after eating a less than normal size meal. I have had an upper GI normal and a gallbladder ultrasound also normal. I am going to a GI doctor in Jan, but wondered if anyone had ever heard of this or ever had it happen to them? Thanks for any ideas, this is so frustrating and scary. I am presently taking Gabapentin for pain and anxiety, and this is the only medicine I am on.
Perhaps even better would be to see an endocrinologist. A number of hormone and chemical changes occur before, during, and after eating, and discomfort during any of these phases can involve changes in blood sugar and various hormones (including insulin). Additionally, the vagus nerve is affected during and after eating, as are numerous areas of the brain. After seeing an endocrinologist, you may be referred to a neurologist, gynecologist, urologist, gastroenterologist, etc. The point is that a simple function like eating has a huge impact on many bodily systems, but the main thing tying all these systems together is the endocrine system. Best of luck!
