Thanks all for the replies. I don't necessarily cook at home with grease lol. Greasy foods like ground meat, homemade roux (flour and cooking oil) and the such is what im referring too. I definitely wont be eating anything fried in the future. Been trying to get the family to eat healthier for awhile but its hard to break them. I will be going to the doctor soon enough. Just thought id get some opinions. Again thanks for the support.

There can be lots of reasons for what you are experiencing and to find the cause which can help you to eliminate the problem, then your Dr is really the only option!
Perhaps you could eat at home more thus you would be able to remove a lot of the grease in your diet!
You definetly need to go see a doctor.....as a diabetic have you ever heard of diabetic neuropathy? It can affect your gastointestinal tract and lead to gastroparesis which is a delay in emptying the stomach. Nausea, vomiting and even low blood glucose can occur.
An endocrinoligist is a specialist in metabloic issues....please see one as heart and nerve damage can go undected. Please don;t wait any longer.
I hope you get this cleared up with your doctor. However, with that laundry list of health problems, why on earth would you be home cooking with grease? Seriously.
There are so many other delicious ways of preparing foods. There's lots of great recipes and instructional articles on this site. Please take some time to explore and experiment. I bet you will be surprised. And even if your family members don't have health issues, they shouldn't be eating greasy fried foods either.
I agree you should see a doctor about this! If it is your gall bladder, then it can become a pretty serious issue. I had emergency gall bladder surgery about ten years ago. I don't wish that misery on anyone! BUT you can't know if that's your trouble, unless you see a doctor! The sooner the better!
Also, I agree with JENNILACEY. If those foods bother you, avoid them like the plague! Seriously, do whatever you can to stay away from them. While SP isn't about deprivation, when it comes to situations like this, a little deprivation is in order!
When I had those symptoms it was my gall bladder. It got so bad I thought I was having a heart attack one night. When your gall bladder stops working it doesn't process food the way it normally would, due to bile. After having my gall bladder removed, my only symptom left is my bathroom problems...If I eat a high fat or calorie meal, it will send me to the bathroom within 15 mins. You learn what foods to avoid, but sometimes you just really want that food...lol I know I shouldn't laugh but after dealing with it for about 4 years now, its the best I can do.
RJ, I am not a Physician but I am a Medic. The s/s you describe are those of someone with gallbladder complaints. Only your Doc can diagnose. Sounds like an appointment is a good idea. Good luck.

Yes, talk with your doctor. Even though people may have similar symptoms they could be for so many different disease processes. I hope you get some answers!

Not that I'm a doctor or anything, you should really ask your doctor to be referred to a gastrointestinal specialist.
My sister had similar symptoms and for years her doctor kept telling her she had GERD and other various gastrointestinal issues. None of her medications really worked. I kept telling her to have her doctor refer her to a specialist and when she finally did, she found out she had gull stones. She ended up getting her gull bladder removed last fall and although she still has some issues with fatty foods and has to watch her diet, it alleviate much of the symptoms.
If grease/fat is bothering you so much, why on Earth are you still eating it??? You should be eating mostly healthy fat sources anyway if you're trying to lose weight and get healthy.

Hi all new here. Here it is. I have a lot of health problems. Diabetes, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, acid reflux. Something new has popped up last year or so. Whenever i eat greasy fried foods like fried chicken i get extremely sick. Gas, bloating, nausea, diarrhea, vomiting. I thought it was isolated to a particular restaurant i ate at but now its spreading to pizza and even home cooking using grease. I have a lot of problems and it might be associated with something else but for it to start now after years of taking medicine for everything seems strange. I asked my doctor but he just increased my acid reflux medicine. Its not even helping at all. Anyone else have similar problems? Im scared to eat alot of foods now because i dont know if it will affect me. Hope to hear back.
