Problems after eating a meal
Most times straight after eating a full meal (I don't overeat and am fairly slim. I'm 21, female) I get a knot in my tummy, break out into a cold sweat and my face goes pale. I would say it's mostly if I have a meal and have a bit of wine with my meal. Even one sip starts it off. My tummy then runs badly. I usually feel better afterwards. This sometimes happens twice a day, but usually once. It's not always associated with alcohol. Could you give me advice? I have no allergies that I know of. Don't think that I drink with every meal, I usually only USED TO have a bit of wine with a meal once or twice a week but now I don't like to even do that.
Leeleand, it’s difficult to say what the problem is from this side of the screen. It might be due to a stomach or stomach outlet problem, a pancreas, gallbladder or liver problem, a metabolic disorder or even something like “dumping syndrome”. Giving you a list of alternatives is fairly easy, but making the diagnosis without examining you, isn’t. The best would be to see your doctor and have it sorted out. Good luck.
