Stomach and abdominal Pains after eating steak.

I eat meat regularly, but rarely eat steak. The other day I had steak for dinner and later that night it felt like there was a knot in my stomach, then finally had a large bowel movement and felt like a million bucks. The next day I had the leftovers and later that night the cramping came back and has lasted 2 days so far. I keep feeling like I have to have another large bowel movement but am only able to get rid of a few pebble-sized feces. My wife who had the same dinner is fine. What can I do to alleviate this?

try digestive enzymes for digesting red meat. Your body might not process or digest rich meats well. I have the same problem and if I eat a real good lean steak I get bad gas and have to "purge". sometimes the same night

Hi, I have a severe stomach pain that started yesterday. I have had this type of pain for the last several years. What I have observed is that it starts after generally eating meat, most typically chicken, and lasts for two days. The first day it starts with a mild stomachache, and then is followed by a severe abdominal pain. At its peak, I feel dizzy and have fever. The next day, the fever and dizziness disappear and my stomach pain continues for another 1 day. The pain completely disappears in the third day. I had similar pain 4 years ago; I went to a doctor and she immediately directed me to a hospital with the diagnosis that I should have my appendix removed. After getting my appendix removed, I was relieved, although not completely, of the stomach pain for 2-3 years. I am suspecting that my stomach is sensitive to certain foods and would like to know if it is possible to know which types of foods I am sensitive to so that I can avoid eating them in the future?

Dear Doctor : I had a bout of 15 motions within two days a month ago at which time Ciplox TZ and enuff were prescribed to me for 3 days and I felt better. I don t eat outside food. After that again since last week I m having 4/5 motions but the consistency is not like before. They are just motions but I do not feel ok as I feel uneasy all the time in the stomach and feel as if i have to go to the toilet. I get pain on the left side of the stomach. Also I don t like to eat food and the taste in the mouth is also different. Previously I had a lot of gas problems which stopped after i took homoeopathy medicine. Do u think this is the cause of the pain. Gas problems ? I have abdominal hernia measuring 1.5 in diameter after my bypass operation in 2008. I also have hiatus hernia since 2008. my doctor has today prescribed Stelbid for 3 days. Would like yr opinion please. Thank you.

Hi I had a hysterectomy (abdominal cutting) in july 2010 for cervical cancer, since then I have severe pain in stomach before and during bowel movements. I can not pass gas or use the restroom unless I drink milk of magnesia first. My butt hurts when sitting down, passing gas and trying to have movement. I can only eat fruit/vegetables or liquid diet in last week due to the progressing pain. I take hydrocodone for neurological problems and have for 7 years. I drink only water or juices. I also have bloating/swelling of the abdomen and at times bright red blood when wiping, some with the feeling of passing bowel movement but not doing so. I chew benefiber 9 tablets daily as well as gas-x with no relief. The surgeon said at my 6 week checkup after surgery said it was normal. I could deal with it somewhat until the last week. The pain is nearly unbearable! No insurance and seeking online help
