Pain at the opening of stomach



Recommended Posts

I just wanted to know if anyone is going through this or has? I’m pretty scared every now and then I eat or drink something and it’s kinda painful when it gets to the opening of the stomach, I have called my doctor and he had called me right away and will be running test but has anyone gone through it and might know maybe what it is.

I am going through the same thing. Wish I had some answers for you. After 2 bites, I get a pain that feels almost like the food is tearing into my stomach as it goes down. It makes me not want to eat at all. Sometimes it even does it with liquid! Btw my bypass surgery was 10/28/20

Are you taking small bites, chewing thoroughly, and giving yourself plenty of time to feel how each bite feels in your stomach?

When I have that kind of uncomfortable feeling in my stomach, it's usually because I've taken too big of a bite or haven't chewed well enough.

Could that be the case for you? It is happening with things like soft foods and liquids too?

Sorry for all the questions, was hoping to help narrow down possibilities! Best of luck to you!

Personally, it happens even when I'm drinking, but worse when I'm eating something. Almost always on the third bite. It's like I've swallowed a key sideways and it's dragging down into my stomach. I've stopped eating solid foods and gone back to liquids and puree. Hoping that will help.

I just wanted to give an update on my issue. I ended up going to the ER on the 27th of November because the pain while eating was not getting better. Infact, it seemed to be getting worse. On top of that it seemed that even just a couple bites of food or drink and I was vomiting. It turns out I have an ulcer. They've put me on some medication but I understand they can be pretty tricky to heal and that they can be easily re-agitated. I'm really only able to eat yogurt, creamy Soup and baby food at this point. Even that hurts after a couple bites and makes me nauseous. I'm taking anti nausea medication, but it doesn't seem to help much. I'm trying to look on the bright side and tell myself I'm going to lose even more weight, faster but I miss eating.
