Severe Pain After Eating
In chronic mesenteric ischemia, you may experience severe pain in your abdomen fifteen to sixty minutes after a meal. The pain can occur in any part of the abdomen but it most commonly occurs in the middle to upper part. This pain may last for sixty to ninety minutes, then disappear.
Many people with chronic mesenteric ischemia begin losing weight because, although they may feel hungry, they do not want to eat because they experience pain.
Diarrhea, Nausea, Vomiting, Flatulence, and Constipation
With acute mesenteric ischemia, you may have sudden, severe abdominal pain. Narcotic pain medications may not adequately alleviate this pain. Nausea and vomiting may also be associated with mesenteric ischemia.
