Hi everybody, I have been recovering from a terrible bout of flu, still coughing, but doing OK after one week. I have noticed that when I leave my stomach empty for many hours and then eat because I'm starving, 1-2 hours later, I get pain in my lower abdomen, lots of gas, and finally the big D. Yesterday I ate 2 slices of bread with honey for breakfast, and then I ate again at 7.30 in the evening my dinner. two hours later I began having stomach ache, gas and then D. I know it's not good for me not to eat for so many hours, but yesterday was a very bad day at work, children etc, and I just forgot to eat!!!!!
Does this happen to any of you, I mean is it so important to eat every 2-3 hours, just to keep something in your stomach? Does D mean that my stomach cannot handle the food after being empty for so many hours?
