Digestive Health: Why Am I Bloated?

I’ve been wondering for awhile if I have acid reflux. whenever I ate greasy foods I would have bad gas to the point my stomach hurts and constant burping and nausea. I had gone to the doctor recently for my stomach issue and prescribed to me omeprazole 20mg for acid reflux.

The doctor had no ideas to offer, and suggested I just take the omeprazole magnesium again. I have been on it for three days with no improvement.

Digestive Enzymes & Stomach Bloating

No hiatal hernia was found and LES appeared okay. I started a low acid diet and doctor put me on Pepcid, but this started reflux symptoms, like mucus, tight chest, lump in throat, which I normally don’t have. I stopped Pepcid after one week, but now these silent reflux symptoms are still there several weeks later.

This is usually due to relaxation of the abdominal muscles in an unconscious way to relieve discomfort. The distension usually disappears on lying flat or on contracting the abdominal muscles. Bloating may also be caused by rich, fatty meals which delay stomach emptying. As if IBS weren’t enough to manage, certain medical conditions can make your symptoms worse. Here’s how you can ease their effects.

Then my problems become unmanageable. I get reflux and IBS symptoms all the time, my stomach won’t leave the food go and I get asthma (my peak flow readings fall from 650 to around 450). So yeah, for me antibiotics seem to be the cause.

Heart attacks may cause symptoms often are mistaken for indigestion. If indigestion is accompanied by shortness of breath, sweating, chest pain, or pain radiating to the jaw, back, neck or arm, seek medical attention immediately. Eating too

I started taking an enzyme supplement which helped the gas, but was still left with some bloating and GERD, and that’s when I found out about Betaine HCl. As a former sufferer of heartburn and acid reflux, I know how painful and distracting it can be.

Gastroesophageal reflux (GERD) is a disease that may cause significant damage to the tissues and cells of the esophagus over time. It’s the chronic form of acid reflux. Irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) is a common condition that affects the large intestine, or colon. Symptoms usually include abdominal pain, cramps, bloating, constipation, diarrhea, and gas. Other symptoms of IBS may include urgent bowel movements or the feeling of incomplete evacuation.

A week ago I started apple cider vinegar before every meal, but this is bringing back the lump in throat and it is starting to make me nauseous. I have also had problems with alternating diarrhea and constipation for a long time and doctor put me on Align probiotics, but this made me very nauseous too and I stopped.

The burning is usually in the central part of the chest, just behind the sternum (breast bone). The burning can worsen or can be brought on by lying flat or on the right side. Pregnancy tends to aggravate heartburn. Heartburn is more common during pregnancy. Most people get heartburn after meals, but can also awaken people while they are sleeping.

What Are the Signs and Symptoms of Indigestion?

Fatty foods can also slow down digestion and the emptying of the stomach. This can have benefits for satiety (and possibly help with weight loss), but can be a problem for people with a tendency to bloat.

This is the new symptoms for last two days. Not sure why my old symptoms are faded and new symptoms are occurring. I am sorry to hear about the unpleasant symptoms you have been having the last few weeks. New symptoms can be a worry especially when they don’t go away or worsen.
