I'm 33, and for the past 6 months or so I've noticed I can't go very long without eating, this is weird for me because I used to be able to go almost all day. Sometimes it hits me very suddenly, like "I've got to eat NOW or I'm going to puke". I do think maybe I developed an ulcer after taking naproxen and I'm curious if this may be connected to that?

It's not good "to be able to go almost all day" without eating. Sounds like an eating disorder and sure that can bring on all kinds of illness.

What I meant was I used to be able to go almost all day without thinking about it, I didn't intentionally not eat. I used to work 12 hour shifts and could go the whole shift without eating. No way I could do that now though, I get sick now if I go more than 4 or 5 hours. And like I said, now it comes on sudden, sometimes within ten minutes.

sounds like hypoglycemia. I'm prone to those attacks if I've gone too long without eating, or a couple hours after having something sugary, except I don't actually feel hungry, just really sick and nauseous, faint, weak, shaky, etc. Once I eat something I'm usually better in a little bit.

Whether or not the cause is the same, I can tell you I can relate to that.
It took me quite a long time to figure out that a 'mild' stonach upset presented itself as feeling as if I was starving.....unreasonable if I had just eaten an hour ago.
And it's not feeling hungry gradually....it's sudden and immediate.
In my case, I finally realized eggs would always cause it so that after a breakfast with eggs, I'd be "hungry".
You might try just havaing something small and bland like a cracker.(If I'm out, I usually just ignore it and it goes away)

I have to wonder if this is something that prompted the old saying......
"you can eat chinese food and an hour later you are hungry again"
