Q: i have severe pain in my stomach if i eat too late at night...is that normal?

I ate something about an hour before bed and I had the worst pain of my life in my stomach. For two hours, I had really sharp pains, almost as if my stomach was squeezing and releasing but never stopping the pain. The pain hurt all the way to my back and I'm unsure of what it is. Any ideas?

It's definitely not "normal." If it continues to happen you should see a doctor. Between now and then keep track of what you eat and when it happens. That way you may be able to see a trend. For example, when I was a teenager I would have these horrible pains after eating fried chicken. I rarely ate it and I think the greasiness just totally threw my system off.

Good Luck - Stephanie
