I also have difficulty after eating, if I eat anything particularly challenging. I had a bit of difficulty with pita-and-hummus on Monday because the pita required much chewing. I really didn'tt have a problem with pizza last night.
I have dull aches. When I get twingy, I take Advil.
My problem is nighttime. yendi says it's probably because I press down on the area when I'm asleep, and I agree. I wake up in the middle of the night in mega pain. I pop a Vicodin. I manage to get back to sleep. I wake up in the morning, I'm in a lot of pain. I take an OTC pain med. I'm okay. I take one later in the day when I get twingy.
So yeah. Clarification.
