It seems like when I eat, I fill up so fast and the food seems to stay in my stomach so long that after hours I can belch some of it up.I always feel better by morning or if I dont eat much. If I dont eat i always get pain. If I do eat then pain starts about 10 minutes later.

I would suggest consulting with a GI on this and maybe having an upper scope. Early satiety can be a sign of several things, among them a stomach tumor.

I second Mike on this one. Go see your GI doc.

I have that as well, but I have been dx'd with gastroparesis. A gastric emptying scan (where you eat an egg sandwich that has a radioactive marker in it, and then take x-rays of your back and abdomen at different time periods over two hours) was how I was dx'd but unfortunately I had an allergic reaction to Reglan and the other meds were really not an option for me.
I've increased my Prevacid dosage and eat much smaller meals throughout the day and am doing better.
You may want to ask the GI about the possibility of gastroparesis.

I have had this recently but mine is due to my surgeries and still recovering. I would definitely see your GI

Agree with Mandolen, it sounds like possible gastroparesis to me as well.  I had nearly identical symptoms for a couple of weeks last year and was found to have temporary gastroparesis (mine luckily only lasted a couple of weeks then returned to normal).   We were trying to figure out if I had Crohn's, and I had the capsule endoscopy done at the time.  The pillcam stayed in my stomach for the entire 7 hours (normal time in the stomach is 20minutes)!  There was still food in my stomach from a couple days before!
An upper endoscopy and/or gastric emptying scan is probably needed to test you out.

Could it possibly be low acid as well? Just a thought.

Diagnosed with Crohn's July 2007. I believe it's in the right side of my colon.
Currently taking Entocort 6 mg/day (tapering down), Asacol, Protonix 40mg/day.

On Specific Carbohydrate Diet (SCD) since late July and seeing improvement in "output" quality and hopefully therefore absorption. Taking SCD legal supplements: B vitamins, Folonic Acid 800mg, EnZym Complete DPP IV Aid by Kirkman, and Saccaromyces Boulardii (a probiotic yeast).

Does this mean I may have sugar diabeties? I have read where Entocort increases blood sugar.


Thanks for the help

I'm not going to suggest not seeing a doctor; it's not my place at all, and I don't know the severity or frequency of the pain, or how long this has been going on. But I've had this problem a couple times, and it's always gone away. It hurts when I'm hungry, and then shortly after I eat, and it's stressful and uncomfortable, but it's always eventually gone away.

I'd try eating multiple smaller meals throughout the day. It can be easy to sensationalize things when your condition is so unpredictable and so much could go wrong, but it's good to have some perspective.
But you should see a doctor if it worries you, or if the pain is significant.
