Why do I feel overstuffed after taking heavy meals?

Q: I am a 28 years old male. I smoke 2 cigarettes per day. Whenever I eat a heavy meal, i.e. full stomach, I feel like coughing. I feel that my stomach has been overstuffed. Can this be a problem in the future?

A:It is possible that after a heavy meal you have reflux of your stomach contents into the food pipe which stimulates coughing. I suggest the following steps:

  1. Avoid heavy meals. It is better to have several small meals.
  2. Do not lie down for at least 2 hours after a meal.
  3. Wear loose clothes around the waist.
