Gastritis and peptic ulcers often feel better with eating (and worse when the stomach is empty). GB symptoms usually worsen with greasy foods like pizza.

Customer: replied 10 months ago.
I'm thinking if I have pancreatitis I would not be able to eat, correct?

that depends on how severe it is...with a mild, indolent case you might be able to eat okay.

i would suggest you see your doctor about might need an upper GI or endoscopy to diagnose what is causing these symptoms.
