    Hi, guys!

    I always feel ill after eating (in 10-15 min). I start to feel like I have a flu or like I got an injection of poison. The intensity of symptoms depends on the food that I eat. When I eat dietary food like oil free meat, fish, cereal this feeling is not too strong. But when I eat any fatty food, drink coffee or soda these flu like symptoms are very very strong, and the same situation with taking any medication. At night when I don't eat I feel almost normal. Has anybody here the same problem? And what can be a cause? I know that my problem is in gut, when I take probiotics I feel better and this postprandial symptoms are not so severe. But I'm interested in a possible mechanism. Any thoughts?:) Thank you

    Could be candida, IBS, Food allergies and sensitivities to name a few. Do an elimination diet and figure out which one is causing the most problems and stop.

    I can tell you with IBS, caffeine and fat are very bad for it. Sugars are bad for candida.

    You have to figure out exactly what is causing the problems.

    Hiatal hernia, liver or gallbladder or pancreas problems, SIBO also come to mind. Actually IBD should also be considered... Crohn's can manifest anywhere in the digestive system and can cause inflammation that could feel flu-like.

    Right now the path of least resistance for you is an elimination diet. Imo.

    You say you know it's gut. You feel better after Probiotics. You know certain foods cause problems. That says a lot. I'd start there.

    I have this EXACT same problem. I've been sick for 15 yrs and it was worse in the beginning. Every time I eat I have to excuse myself from everyone bc I feel so sick and usually depressed too. I doesn't matter what food I eat. I always just figured it was the blood going to my stomach instead of my brain which would then trigger these symptoms but I don't know for sure??? If you ever find out what it is please let me know.

    Gastroparesis also fits the picture. Basically the spontaneous movement of the muscles (motility) in your stomach does not function normally, symptoms can include early satiety, complete loss of appetite, abdominal bloating, abdominal pain, nausea, vomiting, constipation or diarrhea, heartburn or gastroesophageal reflux, malnutrition from malabsorption.

    Gastroparesis has several etiologies which can encompass abnormalities at 3 levels--autonomic nervous system, smooth muscle cells, and enteric neurons so it's not a case of one size fits all.

    Fats and fibre make things worse for most people with this so trial a low fat, low fibre diet and have smaller meals more frequently if you can.

    when you say "fatty foods" I wonder if you are refering to like takeaway kind of foods which are usually high carb. I have hyperinsulinemia and I can get a reaction a short time after eating due to this (the carbs) including like a hit to my immune system (it can actually also give me a sore throat). Fish (non crumbed) and other diet foods which have less sugar and less carbs will cause less of issues if you have carb problems. If hyperinsulinemia is your issue, a 2hr glucose intollerance test but one with the insulin levels included can pick up this.

    Food intolerances also can cause quite fast reactions, many of us are intollerent to caffeine.

    Hi Ekaterina. I have similar problems. In the absence of any explanation, I've been assuming it falls under the umbrella term 'stress' i.e. the burden of digestion upon exhausted organs. Of course it could be anything - leaky gut, IBS, food intolerances, etc. Heavy meals seem to cause me the most problems, or eating when I'm particularly tired. Then it's brain fog, increased fatigue, and sometimes neck stiffness, migraines etc. Interestingly, a strong cup of coffee, has on occasion, cured these early symptoms. On one occasion this happened within five minutes! Be well.
