    bloated stomach, gnawing feeling at top of stomach, can only eat small amounts

    HI all. I have had stomach issues that have escalated since I had my AstraZeneca jab 3 weeks ago. It might be a coincidence. For a while now i have struggled with eating in that i feel hungry but then get full really quickly so i cant eat much as i used to. Now i feel alot of gas in my stomach, i get bloated and feel nausea. I feel really uncomfortable in my stomach and I am struggling to eat, I feel empty i eat and then i feel full really quickly and bloated again. When i sit down i feel pressure at the top of my stomach which reminds me of when i was heavily pregnant with that pressure under my chest at top of my stomach. Can anyone please help?? I have been having CBT which is helping my anxiety but these physical issues are really undermining my progress :( I feel i am never going to feel myself again and i am starting to feel really depressed. Sorry for rambling on just trying to explain. Thank you lovely supportive people, what would we do without this site...

    I'm not an expert but I've been having anxiety issues the last few months and I have been having all kinds of stomach/intestinal issues. This is all solely related to my anxiety. IBS (wind/diarrhoea)/gastritis/low appetite/no appetite/ravenous/nausea.

    Small frequent meals often help. I've also got a hiatus hernia so I've had to double my dose of PPI's.

    Anxiety can have an incredible effect on your digestive system. My issues completely settle as my anxiety does. Don't lose faith they will improve.

    Thank you for our response i appreciate it. the bloating is awful too ! I was hoping that i might get some more responses but sadly i havent but thanks for getting back to me. It could be anxiety or i might have a hiatus hernia i wouldnt know if i have or not. I was offered PPI's but dont really want to start those as I hear that they have alot of side effects.

    Hi, this is weird but I came across your post, had the AZ jab and around sane time frame starting experiencing sane symptoms. I am 6 weeks on from when symptoms started and no better. Going to docs tomorrow for blood tests but canít eat, full fast, bloating, stomach uncomfortable all time.

    HI there. That is really interesting.. I am still the same so fed up, nauseous, horrible empty feeling even when i have eaten, bloated, full uncomfortable n stomach. I am waiting for results from stool sample, i was put in PPI's but didnt like side effects, made my anxiety worse and the gnawing pain. I had bloods taken yesterday so waiting for those results. Keep in touch and i will also let you know how i get on.. I am about 4 weeks on now with no better
