    Qué significa tener el estómago sucio? Es lo mismo que tener el estómago revuelto?, meaning that you feel sick?

    Could you explain how this "really helps you", if the answers given were offered with accompanying doubts and a need for more information? We are all wondering what you meant.

    This might really help you more, that it's probably having indigestion rather than feeling sick.

    Maybe he means, dirty on the outside.

    I've never understood when my mother-in-law uses this odd expression to describe why she thinks my son is tetchy or not eating or sleeping or whatever. But one thing is sure, and that is that it's not on the outside! Sorry Txiri :eek:!

    I'd really like to know what it is in English... is it the same as an upset stomach? I suppose to a non-native speaker that would sound a bit odd too!

    Sé que este hilo está casi petrificado, pero encontré un enlace con una buena explicación de "tener el estómago sucio". Efectivamente, significa 'indigestión', pero también tiene un matiz de ignorancia sobre la causa. O sea, sería un diagnóstico proporcionado por una abuelita de poca escolaridad...
