Thank you for your question. It is possible that you are experiencing a condition known as dyspepsia. Dyspepsia as a gastrointestinal problem that affects the the way food is digested. This is commonly referred to as indigestion. The causes of dyspepsia can be from specific food sensitivities (like diary in the cases of lactose intolerance), stress, thyroid problems, and last but not least family history. Another theory for the cause of this could be due to an malfunctioning sensory nerves of the small intestine in response to ingesting food. Symptoms of dyspepsia include abdominal pain, bloating, belching, diarrhea, nausea and vomiting. We recommend that you have your condition further evaluated by a doctor to determine what treatment options will best suit you. Treatment options include changes in your diet, exercise, as well as certain prescription medications.
