    I don't know whats happening anymore.
    whenever, whatever, I eat, after only a few bites i get really sick, and my stomach feels very full.
    My parents like to eat, a lot, they are both overweight.
    they have some sort of strange veiw on how much a person is supposed to eat, they eat a lot more than people really should, I am aiming to eat normal serving sizes, they think thats not enough.
    and so now I HAVE to finish whatever I eat or they yell at me and threaten to send me to an ED clinic.
    but it makes my stomach hurt sooo badly. I can't take it.
    Its soo hard to keep my food down, I always, after I eat just wanna throw it all up, not to be skinny tho, just to get it out of my stomach so I dont feel it there making me sick anymore.
    I don't know whats wrong with my stomach.
    and another thing is im hungry all the time now.
    the hunger wont go away.
    its so...annoying.
    and then when i eat, after a few bites, im full. then about 10 minutes after my stomach feels like its eating itself and it hurts SO bad. that last for like 2 hours.
    and im hungry all during that time too.

    does it hurt me to digest food? whats going on?

    You should go see a doctor, I know some people who got stomach problems too, there is medication to help with that. Im not a specialist, but reading this, you really should go to a doctor. Keep us in touch :hug:

    I have seen a doctor, none of them know whats wrong.
    someone suggested anxiety was the issue, but even if im not anxious at all this happens.

    it was like that for me when I had a stomach ulcer - it took 6 weeks of medication (different acid reducers and some antibitotics) to clear it up. Might be worth getting another medical opinion

    That sounds awful, obviously none of us are Phd's, I suggest going to a doctor, maybe a specialist if recommended. Also, do a little research on the internet and google some of your symptoms, explain calmy to your parents that your eating habits are your own choice and they are not aimed towards starving yourself but that your in physical pain and can't take in that much, alot of us have different stomach intake capabilities. I know people who eat 3 times as much as me without a thought and others who dont eat 1/3 of what I eat, everyone differs. Try and calmly explain things, hope all works out well for you.

    well it could just be that you are not used to eating so much... youre not supposed to fill your stomach with more than it can handle.

    what happens is your stomach is about the size of your fist, if you continue eating even once you are full your stomach will stretch making you feel over stuffed and bloated and generally uncomfortable possibly even nauseas. now that your stomach has stretched it will take a while before it reduces size again therefore you wont feel satisfied with your small portions anymore because you need more to fill your stomach, also it will feel like you are hungry more often. that 'stomach eating itself feeling' is actually your stomach trying to shrink to its normal size which can be an extremely unpleasant experience, painful yet also mistaken for hunger, you gotta get passed that initial stage so that it can get back to normal. The other thing that people often mistake for hunger is the rumbling in your stomach which is only your gastric juices and the digestive process.

    look im not a doctor but that sounds pretty much like all ive just said. although it could be something else, if it becomes a huge problem i suggest seeing a doctor.
    if you can try to explain to your parents what eating over your limit does to your body and develop some trust with them that they understand you are not trying to kill yourself thru anorexia then maybe they will give your body some time to adjust. if they dont want to listen to you, get them to ask a doctor about overeating.
