Why Am I Feeling Full All The Time

why am I feeling so full all the time

If you’re wondering “Why am I feeling full all the time?” your gut is telling you something is wrong.

Perhaps you are feeling bloated, overly full, or your stomach simply is never satisfied.

Undiagnosed condition

So there are a variety of medical conditions related to feeling full all the time.

The tell-tale sign of an undiagnosed medical condition is eating a few bites and then getting full very quickly.

  • Parkinson’s disease
  • Gastroparesis
  • irritable bowel syndrome
  • multiple sclerosis
  • intestinal surgeries
  • some medications

This is different than eating too much and getting uncomfortably full. This is different than eating lots of food but your stomach is never ‘satisfied’.  This is different than bloating.

For example, in Gastroparesis people may report eating just a few bites of food but then getting too full to continue eating. Imagine a day where you eat just a few bites of food for breakfast, and then a few bites of food for lunch and dinner. Maybe a total of 600 calories.

For most people this would be extremely unpleasant. Your belly would be growling on 600 calories. Yet for people with Gastroparesis they get full. So they wonder, “Why am I feeling full all the time?”

But this type of fullness the person knows something is wrong.

Perhaps the person is also experiencing other side symptoms like:

  • bloating
  • nausea
  • heartburn
  • stomach pain

If you have irritable bowel syndrome you may also experience:

  • stomach cramping
  • bloating
  • gas
  • diarrhea
  • constipation

So in essence just ask yourself, “am I getting full very quickly despite not eating anything?” AND “If I am eating hardly anything, do I also have some symptoms like bloating, stomach pain, heartburn, or constipation?”

If you are feeling bad and hardly eating anything but feel full, you need to go visit your doctor.

Here is an article with more information about undiagnosed medical conditions.

Again, just to drill this point in, if you are asking yourself “Why am I feeling full all the time?” and you also are experiencing other symptoms please go check in with your doctor.
