I started a starch free diet several months ago due to severe abdominal bloating and distention that doctors have yet to discover a cause of. Initially when I went on the diet and even after a big meal I found myself starving only an hour later. Of course this was no surprise as my meal consisted of leeks, onion, celery, chicken/meat/fish, mushrooms, lettuce and cucumber. Being relatively young too at 24, I was bound to digest food at increased speeds to that of an older person. Anywho in the last month or so I've began noticing that after every dinner session, I'm getting a massive bulge in the top part of my abdomen (under rib cage), finding it very difficult to breathe, feeling nauseous and I feel like the food just dwells there for a good 6 hours before it proceeds downwards. The average time it takes for the bulge to move downwards and for me to be able to feel better is definitely about 6 hours as my meal time is always at 6pm and I usually feel better right around midnight. This is also happening with breakfast as of late. I've been suffering with a host of bizarre symptoms and as of yet no specialist has been able to shed a light on what's going on. I would like to add that I do not vomit nor experience pain. Lastly, I continue to feel starving even though my stomach feels full to the brink.
I'm grateful for any help!
