Extreme Pain in the Roof of your Mouth with first meal



Recommended Posts

Okay this literally just happened to me. And it has happened before. I have been dieting lately. I woke up at 10AM and just decided to eat a sandwich. I got the cramp on the roof of my mouth. Exactly how you guys have explained it. I tried to stop eating after that first bite. It continued. So I decided to just keep eating the sandwich. And the cramp subsided. This is a hilarious symptom I’m my opinion and very interesting that so few people know or talk about it!!!

Oh my gosh, that's exactly what I feel! Yes, I also have trouble in eating my first meal in the morning--or after I fasting. It's extremely painful and yes, it feels exactly the same as getting foot cramp--except it happens in your soft palates! I've already had it for more than 10 years I guess. I don't even have bands. But I do have problems with my wisdom teeth--their positions are somewhat abnormal. The worst food is usually breads. I used to have toasted sandwiches as Breakfast, and once I took a bite, bam! The pain stings like hell. It mostly happens when I didn't drink something warm first. I recall that if I drink warm beverages as my first "meal", the soft palates would feel like it stretches out, and it will get tightened, but not in the same awful pain as the one I have without drinking warm beverages. So usually I will let it "moves", until I feel it becomes more relaxed, then I take my first bite of food. Sad is, whenever I describe this symptomp to any dentist I met (I've asked 3 dentists, one is a senior dental surgery doctor), they will look at me like I'm telling a fictional illness... The last one I met, the surgeon, even laughed at me when I told him about "the cramp in the roof of my mouth". But he then explained that the cramp's probably caused by the jaw dropping syndrom I had because of the wisdom teeth. Since I'm still annoyed by his laughing at me, I googled the cramp symptomp and stumbling into this post. Glad to know that I'm not the only one! Someone said it's also because of the lack of Vitamin? Thank you, I'll try to consume more of it in the future.

OMG!! I am no longer banded (port infection required it to be removed). I'm online trying to learn more about the sleeve surgery and was looking for Lapland to sleeve experiences when I came across this. I had this "cramping" in the roof of my mouth while banded (and not for the last two years since band has been off). I never could find answers about this condition. This is the first time I've heard anyone else describe it. It was the most bizarre feeling -- and really uncomfortable.

A Vitamin deficiency is an interesting theory.

      Getting back to work has been really good for me! I am so busy I hardly have time to think about food or eat much and the scale and pants really show. I am either going to need a smaller belt or new jeans. A new belt is cheaper so I'll try this first. My tee shirts hang on me now.

      Im 4 weeks out now and i still get dizzy a lot, i will be doing the most minimalistic things and suddenly have this rush come over me where i feel week and dizzy. Usually not while I'm working out tho. It will happen on the way home from the gym, or in the shower after the gym. It kind of is just annoying at this point... but I'm down 38 pounds from the hospital and i continue to lose weight every day, weather it be .1 pound or 5 pounds in a day progress is progress. It has also been tough because it is summer and it is the summer before my senior year, i want to be out with my friends and go to parties that they are having but for the first two weeks i was kept at my parents side and they only let me go to a birthday party last week for the first time, i feel like i haven't seen my friends as much as I'm used to in the summer, and it kinda sucks, but at the end of the day it was my choice and i hope i made the right one. Im type excited to go back to band camp physically ready, and mentally motivated to push my self more than before. Im excited to do the 3 laps around the band field and not be 5 minutes behind everyone else. I am excited to lose more weight before band starts and i can wear my new boujee workout gear. I am excited to see if anybody notices my weight loss and if it affects my social life once school starts.

      My Body Image Issues:
      07/20/18 Friday
      I am writing this because it seems like no matter how hard I do love myself and have confidence it's like it's hard to believe the words I say and also my old eating disorder/OCD mind tends to take over sometimes and before I know it I'm counting EVERY food that I eat and feeling very fat/freaking out. I'm trying to do my affirmations everyday and fix myself up nice to make myself feel better but it seems like nothing makes me feel better and I go back to either these bad thoughts or I want to self harm to heal myself or randomly yell at people. I get no stress release from my frustrations thus I become even more OCD spend and have other  bad addictions besides OCD'ing on the food I eat like overly exercise until my feet really blister or hurt or over spend on items I think I need to feel a void. I'm tired of putting myself through the ringer but it feels like nothing is never ever enough for me and I'm always searching for answers in the wrong places.

      Summer heat has been debilitating to taking frequent walks. My future success depends on amping up exercise. So happy to see others achieving remarkable weight loss
