Question by Hayley P: I have been receiving horrible abdomen pains following eating protein. What could it be from?

Lately, I have been receiving horrible stomach aches minutes following eating proteins, this kind of as eggs and meat. It isn’t going to appear to come about following chicken. I am also 26 weeks pregnant and this did not occur to me prior to. Nonetheless, before I was pregnant, dairy items utilised to bother my stomach and now I can consume all the cheese I want and I am flawlessly fine.
Tofu and soy goods also lead to me to feel sick to my stomach. But nuts and nut butters are fine.

    “Stomach pain” is a layman’s term that doesn’t really tell a doctor what is really going on. If you had nausea immediately after eating, that is a definite reaction to the food you just ate. We can test for that. Nothing is probably hurting the lining or muscles of your stomach. So we have to consider whether to food is remaining in the stomach too long and causing you a bloated or “full” feeling? But you are describing actual pain; it hurts. Which would indicate that you are having a change in your body because of the pregnancy hormones and the effects of the baby on your body. Chicken is pure protein. So you are not having trouble with protein. Your body is telling you exactly which foods it doesn’t want you to put in your mouth. You have to listen to your body. This probably comes from our caveman days when your stomach was your “early warning” system against eating poison. I think you are ok. Interesting that you can now eat cheese. That’s the tipoff that it’s all from the pregnancy. If it were an allergic reaction, you’d have a rash and swollen eyelids and constricted throat. It doesn’t sound like an allergy.
    I hope you live happily ever after.
