Welcome to Connect, @barbee. I'm so glad you found this group. Have your doctors suggested what might be the cause?

Hi @barbee! I have the same thing happen and it always seems to be associated with overeating and I don't have to get too far out of my parameters for daily caloric intake to have this pain. It feels exactly like the pain post surgery that is caused by the air pumped into your chest and stomach cavity to create space between organs during surgery. That air trying to escape from somewhere other than your stomach is very painful. If you find out some other cause, I would love to hear it.
Best wishes, Gary
