Hi lilamy,
It is important for everyone, not just IBSers, to keep some food in their stomach. It is good to eat several small meals a day, as opposed to 2 or 3 gigantic feasts. Also, it's not good to eat before bed (I learned that the hard way). "They" say to eat at LEAST 3-4 hours before bed. When you're awake it helps your body digest properly. For me it helped a lot with heartburn and waking up with D.
Do you plan on seeing a doc soon for a diagnosis?

Lilamy, are you having an abdominal ultrasound? For what... do they suspect a gallbladder problem?
It is good to snack a lot. I too get full easily. I finally learned to ask for a take-out box when I go out to eat. You really should try and get a routine down for taking your meds. It's hard but worth it if the meds will make you feel better. Do you have a cell phone or watch that you carry around with an alarm? I used to set my phone to beep everyday at a certain time so I would remember to take my meds.
I remember you a while back saying you were waiting for the doc.... what a slacker doc you have. I'm sorry. I hope you get in soon.

Geez, I remember that too, that was a long time ago... I can't believe that doctor... if he was my doctor, he'd be so fired!!

My daily food schedule usually consists of raisin bran and coffee in the am (around 5:30am), fruit or similar snack around 8am, lunch (mostly soup or sandwich) around 10:30am... snack when I get home(around 4pm)... light dinner at about 7pm... I can't eat after that because of my GERD or its heartburn city all night for me.
Hugs, Des

Lilamy,

FYI.... Sparkling anything is tough on most IBSers. The carbonation makes us blow up like a balloon and feel gassy and bloated for quite some time afterwards.
Some of us can't handle much chocolate either.
Are you keeping a food diary? If not, maybe you could start. Write down what you ate (the portion too), when you ate it and how it made you feel afterwards. This way you can go back and see exactly what is making you miserable.

Bad gall bladders can sometimes make people fill full too quickly. As can acid reflux. When my gall bladder was acting up, I would be a little more than halfway through my meal and then... ug! I felt like I had eaten about three bites past the "full" mark and was sick I felt so full. The feeling would just come on me all of a sudden and was fairly unpredictable.

Actually, gall bladder disease is genetic. Of course, not everyone "inherits" it, but it does make it more likely you will have problems. My mother had hers out because it was malformed and functioning incorrectly. Mine ended up being chronically inflamed.

Now they remove gall bladders lapriscopically. I only have three scars about 1/2 - 3/4 of an inch in length. The fourth incision is through the navel.

Do you have any other symptoms other than feeling overly full? If not, then you probably have something more in line with acid reflux or a hernia than a gall bladder problem (although some gall bladders have no symtoms, though they may be full of stones or sludge).
