What causes stomach pain two hours after eating or drinking?
may be due to reflux or gas producing foods
HI, thanks for using healthcare magic
There are different causes of bloating (distension) and abdominal pain but the most common would be reflux and relation to gas producing foods.
There are certain foods that are associated with an increased risk of gas production eg broccoli, cabbage, cauliflower, beans, turnips, brussel sprouts, carbonated drinks
If you use a lot of any of these reduction may help
Reflux is another common cause and it tends to be worse at night (as in your case) or early morning.
It is related to excess stomach acid, though the gas x would help get rid of the gas, it would not reduce the acid so you need to use other medication
Medication such as prilosec, prevacid, aciphex, nexium - would help. These reduce acid production in the stomach.
Because they cannot get rid of the acid already present , they make take a few days to kick in
Also avoid spicy, acid, fried foods. Reduce portion sizes, use small frequent meals instead of large meals.
Summary: (A) avoid gas producing foods
(B) also avoid spicy/fried/acid foods and reduce portion sizes
(c)use one of the meds mentioned along with the gas x
I hope this helps, feel free to ask any other questions
this is the temporary stop/discontinuation of peristalsis
Normally the bowels contract and relax intermittently. This wave like movement allows the bowel to move food and air through the intestines, it is called peristalsis.
Ileus refers to the temporary stop/discontinuation of peristalsis
