about 2 weeks ago I had an episode of vomiting & diarrhea. After that my stomach remained bloated & I had an ocassional feeling of stomach cramps with cramps in my lower abdomen. My stomach feels hard after eating a meal
I would see a doctor asap. It could be IBS, which I have and sometimes manifests that way, but it might also be your gallbladder or something more serious, so it's worth talking to your primary care doctor about it.
It's important to get things like what you are describing checked out by your doctor; they can be symptoms of something medically serious. Having said that, people who suffer from eating disorders often feel bloated and uncomfortable after eating. Part of this is their bodies trying to adjust to the erratic way they eat, especially if they have spent significant periods of time eating very little, and part of it can be anxiety related to the stress of eating. I always encourage my clients to alert their doctors about what they experience, just so we can be certain they are medically ok. Usually it turns out to be one of the above things I've mentioned, but it's always important to be careful with our health!
