Morning Lower abdomen burning, Diarrhea and nausea



Recommended Posts

Hello,

My doctor hasn’t been any help. I wake up at least 3x a week with burning in my lower abdomen, nausea (drooling), and diarrhea.

It only happens in the mornings and comes in waves. Anyone else experience this and found the problem?

Thank you!

yep sounds EXACTLY like my lactose intolerance, took me ages to figure out that was what it was. Even lacto free milk does it to me!! Try 5 days no dairy see what happens :)

How far post-op are you? Does it happen after certain foods?

I’m 8 months post-op. My doc says it might be acid reflux but I had RNY which seems so odd to me. I haven’t noticed a pattern in foodS. Based on the suggestions of watching dairy I will try that though!

Really?! I will watch dairy and see what happens. So odd that it’s delayed to the next morning. I do eat string cheese so I will cut that out and see if it helps.

thank you!!!!

I’m 3 weeks post op, on purées and have the exact same problem. Go to bed like usual and first thing in the morning, chills, cramps, nausea, then diarrhea. Some have suggested lactose related. Did you ever figure it out? If so, what did you eat until it got sorted. Feeling very limited as eggs, shakes, cottage cheese, and mashed potatoes were getting me through this stage. I feel very depressed as the symptoms have increased and I now get it 3 times a day even with Imodium AD.
