Can constipation make you feel like you're hungry? Watch

    I'm having some issues with feeling hungry even though I know I can't be (ie. even shortly after eating a meal). My digestive system has also been a bit slow these past couple of days which does happen quite a lot so I'm trying to combat it by getting more exercise and eating fruit which I don't do normally.

    However I know hunger pains are a symptoms of excess acid and I have had gastritis before, I've been on omeprazole 3 times already becomes some symptoms kept coming back after finishing it and the doctor said if it happens again I'll have to have a gastroscopy which I REALLY don't want to have because I have a vomit phobia (my anxiety around this is what has caused my stomach issues in the first place).

    Is it a sign that my gastritis issues are back or should I just wait to see what happens when my digestion goes back to normal?

    I'm sure it can't be because of the exercise I'm doing, I never did any before and I'm trying to do at least light exercise every day, not so much that it could have increased my hunger so dramatically.

    Ask your GP
    If it carries on like this I will, but I just want to know if I'm overreacting.

    And you can only know if you're overreacting by asking your GP. People on the internet can't diagnose your physical conditions based on your testimony.

    Gut and digestive issues are really difficult to distinguish between so your GP id the best option. I would especially suggest it since you have has issues previously.
