You stomach is not really empty, but is already full. When the water arrives it has to leave fairly quickly, starting within 5 minutes into the small intestine, and more or less all gone in half an hour.

Take liquorice root powder with a little water a few times a day. About half a teaspoon. If you do have h. pylori, it will help kill it off and keep it from getting worse. But definitely get tested for it!

Has anyone experienced stomach pains after eating liver? Also, does anyone know what is the reason for this?

Eccdc4a151a251107ade4d052c3978df
Christina_ier 0 · August 26, 2013 at 7:43 PM

Is it only after liver? Or do you experience the same symptoms after foods like cheese or shellfish? It could be that you're sensitive to histamine.
