Question: Possible Eating problem

 Darren - Wed Dec 22, 2004 9:20 pm

This passed week I have eaten, for what i consider at least, very little, yet after each meal I feel very full. I usually have a good appetite and come way from meals like dinner feeling only slightly full, especially If I've had nothing before hand. But recently food doesn't seem at all appealing and I've only been able to eat small dinners, and afterwards I feel very full and often regurgitate small amounts of food, and I also have diarrhea, are these any symptons you are familiar with?

This doesn't sound like anything serious at this point. Your body goes through phases of craving food and not needing as much food as you consider "normal". The diarrhea could be a result of your changed eating habits.

BUT, if your symptoms get any worse, you begin losing a significant amount of weight, you begin to have fever or more stomach discomfort than usual, it would be advisable to get in to see your physician for further testing. A person's body has a pretty good communication system with the brain. Listen to what it's telling you.
