Hi. I have been having difficulty eating solid food for

Hi. I have been having difficulty eating solid food for the past 5 days. When I eat it has a hard time digesting and I feel a narrowing/ obstruction in my upper intestines. It started last Friday when my heart rate accelerated and I had a small panick attack. After that I could eat but the food was not processed properly because it feels like there is something obstructing or narrowing my intestines. There is no pain but a slight swelling in my stomach and discomfort. I also had an accelerated heart rate this past Monday but ate a banana and calmed down. My family has a history of mono nucleosis but I do not feel that fatigued.

My daughter has been unable to eat solid food for 2 months. She is on a liquid diet + Miralax 3 times/ day. She s 5 5 and is down to 93 Lbs. She has been seeing a specialist and has had every test imaginable done. No one can figure out the problem. Could it be that some necessary enzymes are not breaking down the food or liquids.? She says her intestines are always contracting and trying. Could her colon be distended? Her last BM was in early Oct and was about 3 inches in diameter.

Hi, My son is 10 months old having good growth. We started introducing solid foods (liquid and then subsequently mashed) at the age of 5 months. He started adapting it by 6.5 months. But gradually he started denying it. Now, at this age, he only likes to be breast fed. I am very much worried. Please let me know how to easily feed him solids as only breastmilk does not satisfy his hunger. Is it due to strong separation anxiety with me, his mom? Or any other reason?
