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.

When I was young I often had the experience of beginning Breakfast with a donut or toast and jam. It would bring on a pain in my palate which was kind of a cramping pain - a tight sharp pain that lasted a couple minutes. Drinking did not relieve it. This has not happened for decades, however.

      Thought I'd give an update.  I'm over half way to my goal, which is awesome, and I've lost over 12 inches in my waist!  The weight isn't coming off as quickly as I had hoped, but I am also not exercising and still not getting even close to the amount of water I should be drinking, so slow weight loss is not all that surprising.  Sometimes I'm just "over it" and try to eat huge portions like I used to, but, thankfully, I feel the restriction of my smaller stomach and can't go crazy.  In general, I'm quite good, just trying to live my life.
      I now have a motivation to start exercising, though... I booked a plane ticket to Germany for the end of September, so this is a good chance to get strong, get hydrated, and reach my weight goal.

      Wow looking through my own eyes I just don't see 50 lbs done.  I took the side my side picture from 4 months ago to today's and can only see some change.  I hope I can keep loosing.  I just read that the window or the honeymoon stage of weight lost is in the first 4 months after that it will slow down and you have to work even harder to keep it going.  Trying to keep positive even if it is one pound I lost in 2 weeks.

      So I had my surgery on Jan 7th. At this point I haven't eaten anything for 2 weeks am giving myself my injections. I can barely stomach the protein shakes that I am to have twice a day. I have noticed a small weight loss not as much as I thought I would have since I haven't eaten anything. I haven't started working out at the gym yet. I broke in a horrible case of hives from my incisions but have since been cleared up. I didn't really have any nausea from my surgery. I don't even feel like I had surgery. I am sure once I start eating  I will notice. To ask others. I have sleeve surgery so wondering if anyone else out there had this surgery how did you feel after. When did you start eating foods. I am nervous to start eating. I drink my 64oz plus water a day but that's about it that I am taking in other than the occasional sugar free Popsicle.

        In the beginning, I was sure that I would go straight to malnutrition hell if I missed even a dose. Turns out, it takes several weeks to months to get yourself in any substantial trouble. My excellent labwork has proven to me that it's not just okay to skip (out of laziness or accidentally) your supplements, but it probably saves you a couple of bucks here and there. Mellow out is my new mantra. Go the best you can with hydration, protein, and your recommended supplements. Trying to live a stress-free life is infinitely more important than your supplements for any given day. (None of this little blabfest was intended for the lovely and ever-knowledgable GT.)
