Where was your pain?? My reflux sometimes gets worse when my stomach is empty. It seems odd for intestinal pain though. Maybe you'll have an answer after your tests. I hope you feel better soon.

I am one who has to eat every few hours especially in the earlier part of the day. If I don't eat I don't get pain so much but VERY VERY sick to my stomach. And my acid reflux goes into a tailspin. Hope your test provide some answers. Hugs!

Ditto to what Nanners said.  I have to keep something in my stomach at all times during the day, or else I'm super sick to my stomach.  No pain though-just extreme nauseousness.  Although, part of my problem is probably the meds I'm on.

Yes, I have to eat every few hours or my reflux and my stomach spasms cause me a lot more pain than eating does.  I get so sick when I have tests where I can't eat all day.
