Stomach or stomach pain after eating: Causes and symptoms

  1. Abdominal or stomach pain after eating has many possible causes, such as a disease or a problem with the diet. These symptoms range from mild to severe and sometimes other symptoms are accompanied by stomach or abdominal pain after eating. Treatment depends on the cause. For example, when certain foods cause abdominal pain, the patient eliminates these nutritional products. A different diet is also often possible to reduce the symptoms. But in some cases medical advice is important and the doctor will use medicines, surgery and / or other therapies. Often the symptoms disappear when the cause is treated effectively.

Conditions that cause stomach and abdominal pain

  1. Appendicitis Very intense abdominal pain in the lower right side of the abdomen may point towards appendicitis (inflammation of the worm-shaped appendage of the cecum). This pain is often worse after eating and is accompanied by vomiting and a mild fever

Food that causes stomach and stomach pain after eating

  1. Celiac disease In celiac disease, the immune system reacts after consuming gluten. Gluten is a protein found in barley, wheat, oats, barley, malt, semolina and rye. The gliadin protein (component of gluten) exerts a toxic effect on the lining of the small intestine. This damage to the mucous membrane leads to the death of the intestinal villi (flake-shaped protrusions of the mucous membrane of the intestine). The small intestine is therefore poorly able to absorb the nutrients. After eating gluten, the patient thus develops these symptoms: abdominal pain, diarrhea, weight loss, osteoporosis (loss of bone mass with risk of fractures), joint pain, erosion of the tooth enamel, fatigue

Medical advice for certain combination of symptoms

  1. In case of severe abdominal pain or stomach pain after eating in combination with blood in the stool, vomiting, pallor or an acutely tender stomach, immediate medical attention is required.
