Default Constant Hunger pains no relief from eatting

Once in awhile and these are one of those times I get this thing going on. I'm hungry to the point I have hunger pains. I eat, the hunger pains are still there, I eat more and still hunger pains. WTF? It won't go away. I can't eat enough to stop the hunger pains. Does anyone else have this?

It's one of those days again. I've eatten at Edo Japan today and I've eatten McDonald's plus snacking on the side. WTF? I know alittle too much eatting out today but just needed to do that. I don't know.

Basically I should have more than enough calories.

sometimes we confuse hunger with thirst. Have you had anything to drink? Try a glass or 2 of water. Also, if you eat things too quickly your body doesnt get a chance to send a signal to your brain to tell you it feels full, it can usually take up to 20 mins.

Alternatively, if you are still feeling pain, it could not be hunger at all, I would suggest you talk to your doctor. Hope you feel better soon x

I agree with Fallen Angel. It doesn't make sense for what you're feeling to be hunger, if it is a physical sensation, because even with binge eating there isn't a physical feeling of hunger. It might be a good idea to see a doctor about this.

As my uneducated opinion though, when you eat too much, especially food which is high in fat or something else that's not easily digestible, it can cause stomach pain and also eventually lead to irritable bowel syndrome. So, perhaps, you do start out feeling hungry but the pains you feel after eating are just pains unrelated to hunger. I don't know though, obviously I'm not a doctor :)

I do hope you feel better soon though and get this resolved. Good luck (:

It is also possibly to confuse over production of acid and acid reflux with hunger. It can give you that slightly sickly empty feeling even when you're not actually in need of food at all.

I suffer from acid reflux as a daily occurrence and have done so for a number of years. I invariably wake up feeling hungry, even after just a nap and regardless of whether I've eaten or not.

Thanks guys. Acid reflux could be a possiblity for me. Also, I remember I had McDonald's earlier that day and I haven't eatten McDonald's in along time. What I found interesting is I haven't felt that way in along time. I'm wondering if it was eatting McDonalds food. Probably all carbohydrates.
Things that make you go hmmm...

Insist that your doctor do a glucose tolerance test. Even if your A1C (the "three month" blood sugar test) is lower than 6 and indicates that you are not diabetic. I was constantly hungry. My blood surgar was sometimes high but sometimes it was normal. My A1C was always normal. A glucose tolerance test definitively showed I was diabetic.

Good Luck!

I'll keep this in mind. I have Polycystic Ovaries which gives you an increase risk and I've have diabetes on both side of the family. I don't want Diabetes.

It might be rather late for a reply to this, but I have a very similar situation which may be related. I often find that if I wait too long to eat and I remain hungry (hunger pains and all) for an extended amount of time, that eating food will have no effect on the pains. I spoke to my Dr. about this a few years ago and he explained that in some circumstances, the stomach will fill with gas which is what gives you that bloated feeling. Putting food into the stomach can actually make the pains worse if you were unable to release this gas in some way or another. He basically said that in these situations, a good gaseous release (from either end) will usually alleviate the pain. How does one accomplish this you ask? I've found that when I'm having pains such as these, attempting to force a burp usually produces results.. if that fails, try laying flat on your belly for 15 minutes or so. Within this amount of time, the gas should have sufficient time to work its way through your system and release. This is the simplest way I can put it. I truly hope this information helps. If this produces no result, then definitely explore other causes, but in my experience I've found that often the simplest explanation is the most accurate.

Thank-you. I hope this will help. This happens with me from time to time. This also makes sense to me because I maybe getting GERD and I also have IBS. So gas seems to be an issue for me. I'll keep this in mind cause it's annoying to not fill up and be full. Thanks.
