Sep 18, 2018 · Left shoulder pain 15 mins. after eating in Digestive Health

Thanks to all of you for your thoughtful replies. I did have a small update on my individual condition.

I had a CT scan came back completely clear which I was simultaneously thankful for and slightly disappointed that it didn’t identify something that could be treated.

After I pressed, the doctor he did ask one question and asked if I was constipated. I said I didn’t think so because I was having 1 to 2 movements a day. I did say that I had discontinued daily use of Metamucil that I have been using for years. I was previously diagnosed with diverticulitis and get an anabiotic. The negative outcome of that was it destroyed all of the bacteria in my stomach and drastically changed my regularity and consistency. I figured if I was having symptoms that were very similar to irritable bowel syndrome that fiber was only going to make it worse. He recommended that I start that regimen up again and it’s been roughly 2 weeks and I have not had a reoccurrence of the shoulder pain. In that span of time I have had a few occasions where I’ve eaten far too much and consume more alcohol than I should of and neither of those triggers a painful outcome. Two weeks is a fairly short span of time so I will continue to monitor and also make attempts at controlling portion size and alcohol consumption. I’ll be sure to check back in if I notice anything else.

I’m having a CT scan and blood work done with my GI doc. Neck pain after eating is hard to conceptualize whether it’s caused by the stomach or something else but we’re starting with the GI point of view. I’ll hope to follow up with the outcome. I suspect these tests will bring as many questions as answers but we’ll see.

I have recently developed this symptom is well. Roughly 15 minutes after I eat I developed a severe pain in my left shoulder that creeps up to my neck. It doesn’t seem to happen when I eat in the morning or at lunch almost exclusively in the evening. It is also not exacerbated by any movement although a deep breath can make the pain more intense. We eat fairly healthy at our house but I am prone to eating too much. I’m 38 years old and I exercise 4 to 6 times per week. I’m trying to get back to see my G.I. doc soon but I would love to have someone of a hunch going in
