Pregnant, contraction like pain after eating. Could it be related to hernia or intestinal spasms ?

Hi, I am 12 weeks pregnant. After I eat, and it doesn t matter what, I have pain. It feels like contractions. I went to the ER and they told me it could be related to my hernia or intestinal spasms. They also said there was nothing that could help. I am in so much pain, I don t know what to do. Please advise. Thank you

Thank you for your query.
It seems you are suffering from some gastrointestinal infection, that is causing cramps and pain after eating.
It could also be severe gastritis.
You could try eating small frequent meals, with more liquids, spread out through the day.
Avoid spicy, oily, greasy food and take meals / liquids every 2 hours.
try increasing probiotics ( yoghurt, sporolac plus tablets ) in your diet.
take care.
If not relieved, it is better to consult a gastroenterologist.
