Odd stomach issues? watch

    • #1
    • Thread Starter

    In the morning my stomach feels fairly soft and pillowy. (bearing in mind I'm fairly slim and haven't got much belly fat)
    But after eating my guts feel much more solid and for the rest of the day I have acheyness around my entire midriff, and my entire stomach beneath my ribcage feels firmer and harder.
    This has only started happening in the last week/two weeks.
    What's happening?

    You may have developed an intolerance to something your eating (like wheat, startch etc..) its not like an allegic reaction which can be quite serious.
    An intolerance ia usually caused when you develop a 'leaky gut', this is where a specific ingridiant in a food filters throught the intestinal wall, your body develops antibodies for this ingridient and this is called an intolerance. You get a bloated and heavy feeling in your stomach, my boyfriend described his as 'it sits in my stomach'.
    I'd suggest keeping a food diary and note when you feel uncomfortable and see if there is a certain food that crops up alot. You cut this food out for a few months so your gut can heal itself then you can start eating it again.
    Of course you could also have plain old indigestion!
    Hope this helps
