Stomach Feels Nauseous And Bloated After Accidentally Throwing Up Food That Has Been Eaten?
I want to ask, so at that time I was full, then I intentionally threw up so I wouldn’t be too full. Since then, sometimes my stomach feels bloated and nauseous. Why is that? ( Thank you )
Hi Jonathan. Conditions where you intentionally regurgitate food can cause irritation, especially in the esophagus. In addition, if it is mixed with stomach acid, stomach acid can rise to the top and trigger discomfort in the chest and irritate the esophagus. Then deliberately vomiting food causes the digestive process of food in the stomach to be disrupted and the release of stomach acid that is supposed to digest food is not used and can irritate the stomach. This condition if too often can cause heartburn, gastritis or stomach acid disease.
Avoid the habit of vomiting the food you eat, but instead eat the amount in moderation or a little but often. Also avoid eating large amounts of food when you are feeling very hungry. Keep a regular diet, avoid foods that are too fatty, salty, and spicy, get enough rest and manage stress. Specific treatment depends on the underlying cause. Consult a doctor for further treatment. Hopefully helpful, and thank you. Regards, Dr Alyssa
