Common Questions and Answers about Bloating vegetarian

gas

I've suffered with a cronic problem for years with bloating, pressure, never feeling hungry. I wonder if it could be heart disease. When it's at its worst I feel pressure in my chest and back and some times the heart area. I did have a heart murmur when I was born and had some heart surgery when I was little. I have always thought it had to be something wrong in my digestive tract but maybe it could be heart disease. I'm desperate. Thank you for your help.
mild to diary, apples, leeks, chives, onions, nut mixes. I have also noticed severe bloating after eating broccoli, fresh tomatoes and potatoes. I have been a vegetarian from birth but have become an meat eater in the last 3months due to not being able to eat much. Please advise any diets, or coursebook action as I do not know what else to do, other than not eat.
Now I am experiencing gas and bloating and fearing a recurrance. I'm hoping it's something else, but will get it checked this week. My last ca125 was 10. Has anyone else had this experience?
Abdominal pain Gas Bloating Belching Weight loss They began suddenly a little over a year ago, starting with extreme bloating. I have since consulted an internist, a gastroenterologist, a nutritionist, and a couple of naturopaths. I have had the following tests: Blood panel Thyroid Colonscopy Upper GI x-ray Food allergy testing Bacteriology/Parasitology testing There were no significant findings on any of the tests. I have tried colon cleanses and vegetable-oriented, alkaline diets.
My stomach is rock hard and looks like I am six moths pregnant, I have been on a gluten free diet plus no lactose, and I'm a vegetarian, I've never been on a low fructose diet I will try that but my symptoms never seem to change no matter what I do, doctors say going to the bathroom or IBS but what I know of IBS is it comes and goes this stays with me constantly, I have lower back pains, slight fevers, headaches, under my arms are swollen, weight gain, tired.
Hi, I have chronic bloating (I look 9 months pregnant) every time I eat. It's been going on for years and sometimes it causes me to double over. I am relatively thin and my stomach being so distended causes it to hurt... not to mention that it's embarrassing. I have IBS-C and a few months ago I was tested for Celiacs Disease by a blood test and it came back negative. I had a colonoscopy and it revealed that I have a tortuous colon. For that reason, I take Miralax and Amitza every day.
I have been having weird feelings in my stomach, unusual bloating in the lower abdomen, pressure on my bladder, and slight nausea. Because of the pressure on my bladder, i have had to urinate more often than normal. When eating a meal, my stomach gets full faster than it used to. The bloating and discomfort in my lower stomach are comfusing me. It feels like I have indigestion or gas that won't go away...it's not really painful, just uncomfortable and lots of pressure.
Suggest cooking and giving only low fat meats (chicken, fish, loin of pork) or non-meat sources (soy products, nuts), low fat vegetarian combinations (rice & beans, pasta & beans, low fat cheese & pasta), fat free or low fat dairy products (skim milk, 1% milk, low fat cheese, low fat yogurts, low fat soy milk/yogurt), use plant oils, non trans-fat margarines, and eat a lot of fruits and vegetables. Eat daily high fiber breads and cereals (oatmeal) and no ‘junk’ foods or snacks.
Sodium/potassium levels should be good- I've always tried to have a lot of potassium in my diet (I eat mostly vegetarian) and I drink a lot of water, which is why I ended up with hyponatremia (dangerously low sodium) when I drank more than normal. Low gastric acid levels was something I read about the other day and thought it could be a possibility (possibly caused by the hyponatremia?). Thanks again for your suggestions. After I have tried a few of these, I will post again with the results.
I have been suffering from Stomach bloating for two years now and the doctors cannot figure out what is wrong with me. I had every test under the sun. Upper GI, colonoscopy, CT Scan, Xtray, test for stomach cancer, etc. The only thing that temporarily helped it was antibiotics which made it go away for awhile, but then it always comes back.
Hi to all. I'm doing an online investigation about DIETARY FRUCTOSE INTOLERANCE (DFI). In this condition most fruits (apples, pears, prunes...), honey, some vegetables (tomatoes, artichoke...), products with added High Fructose Corn Syrup (HFCS), sorbitol (in "low calorie" foods or "sugar free" chewing gum) and often wheat and onions cause BLOATING and DIARRHEA (also headache or depression). For more info click on my username and check "journals".
For the past 2 years I have been plagued with extreme bloating and abdominal pain. Most recently I have had issues of severe constipation. This occurs despite being a vegetarian and eating a very balanced diet, high in fibre. I do intense interval training twice weekly and walk 3-5 times weekly (for an average of an hour/ session). I have been gaining weight and can easily fluctuate 5 lbs. in a day. I am tired of being so uncomfortable! I have recently had a colonoscopy and endoscopy.
) Please note, also that I'm a vegetarian so fatty meat in take is not a part of my daily diet. The only food that seemed to help is yogurt, BUT today was my third day of not taking omeprazole and I had some for breakfast because I woke up feeling incredibly hungery. However, yesterday I woke up feeling quite crappy and my thoughts could hardly stomach the idea of eating breakfast so I had some soymilk chai instead in order to hopefully make myself feel full.
Since then I have been RAPIDLY gaining weight and have gained a total of 16 lbs since my surgery, despite being very active and following a 75% vegetarian diet. My stomach is HUGELY bloated and I literally cannot fit into my clothes. For the last 20 years I have been the same size and my eating habits have not changed drastically. Also, I am severely constipated and have a lot of gas. I feel horrible!! Would a different medication change things??
I have had stomach issues my whole life, bloating, nauseated, headaches... My doctor suggested that I should try eliminating Lactose and gluten from my diet. I do not eat a lot of foods mainly because I do not like to eat a lot of processed or high fat or sugary foods so I only eat fruits, veggies and rarely meat. I find though at night I get very hungry but am not satisfied. I was wanting to know what would be the best protein powder to use or if it's a good idea for me to take one?
I have been a vegetarian for thirty years and eat a high fibre diet. I was diagnosed with mild gastroparesis and advised to eat six meals per day and to eat more liquid-type meals. After reading many articles on the internet, I went from eating a healthy wholesome diet, to a bland, tasteless, low fibre diet. I was very unhappy with this and no longer enjoyed making food. After one week I could no longer eat this type of food and returned to my high fibre diet.
People have become highly allergic to soy after consuming so much of it on a vegetarian diet and have almost died from it. This is not an anti-vegetarian post, so don't take it that way. Soy is known to cause a lot of serious and even life-threatening health issues. Please, for your own sake, run as far away as you can from soy.
I am convinced that bloated stomach caused by abdominal gas produces irregularities of heartbeat, especially when lying down or sitting in certain positions. Sitting up and standing immediately re-establishes a good sinus rhythm. There are no other obvious symptoms of cardiac disease such as angina, shortness of breath, or blueness of lips; on the contrary the subject exercises vigorously an hour a day without symptoms.
I'm 23, had an ultrasound and a small cyst was found on my left ovary (from egg build up), my doctor suggested the pill but I have had heaps of other symptoms (extreme irritability to certain foods, bloating, constipation, excessive urination, incontinence sometimes, lack of menstrual cycle for over a year and lord knows what else) so he's sending me to a gyno to check it out but I could be waiting months for an appointment as I have no private health cover.
Combining food appropriatly also helps digestion and reduce post eating bloating. Dont mix meat with carbohydrates; vegetarian proteins & carbos are less blaoting. Meat and vegetables or salad are ok. It is also a good idea to ensure you are not constipated prior to chemo, then the strong antiemetics given with chemo cause less constipation.

I actually feel ok now, as I was having a lot of trouble with fatigue. However, my weight fluctuates terribly, and have a lot of bloating and now I am suffering with enlarged and tender breasts. I eat a healthy vegetarian diet so why am I having trouble with losing weight.. Is there any supplements or anything I can do to speed up my metabolism?
It's not heavy to where I need to wear a pad or tampon. It's just there. I am not getting cramps, bloating, fatigue or anything else. It's just the blood and sometimes blood clots as well. I'm not usually comfortable talking about this, so if anyone can give me advice on here, I would greatly appreciate it. Is it something serious? I was reading many of these forums, and it seems like many women have gone through something similar, please help!!
Hello, About 9 mos ago I started having odd bowel movements that were cow pie like (not quite diarrhea) along with bloating and at times I would see food that had not digested (brown rice and red peppers) but this symptom have gone away. Currently I have 2 bowel movements per day that is cow pie like and I am bloated probably 50% of the time.
I have been suffering from terrible gas. bloating and excessive burping for the past 2 years. My doctor has also done the h-pylori test and an ultrasound to check for gallstones but found nothing. I am a vegetarian, eat a limited low fat diet, but am at a loss for what is causing this. On my doctor's suggestion, I have been taking Gas X, but the problem continues. I belch with a loud sound and lots of gas rushes out through the mouth. My children get really disgusted when I do that.

Could it be endometriosis (FYI - I do not have heavy bleeding/spotting, but I do have terrible cramps, anxiety, bloating and extended Mittelschmerz)? Could I have a lesion or cyst on my colon or appendix or bladder that would refer pain to that area? For reference, I'm 36, no kids, normal weight, very healthy eater (vegetarian, nothing processed, no dairy, soy or gluten).
I have had several undiagnosed conditions, including persistent almost permanent allergic rashes (3 biopsies no diagnosis), bloating intestines with several food allergies developing in adulthood, dry eyes, transient muscle weakness that makes me drop things and stumble (checked for MS 15 years ago and it was negative.) My mom has lupus, I was checked by a rheumatoid arthritis specialist when i was 28 because my right leg kept giving out and he had no answers. (I am now 49).
I have been having a lot of trouble with extreme bloating, I also have reactive hypoglycemia diagnosed by a 3 hour gtt. I work for a cardiologist and he told me I should eliminated dairy from my diet and try to eliminate simple carbs and bread/pasta as much as possible. I've tried twice but by the 2nd day I am in ketosis, feeling light headed, slurring my words! It's horrible.
So I took gluten out of my diet for a day and took some Turmeric. Everything was fine yesterday, a little bloating after eating (homemade fried rice with egg and gluten free soy sauce). Peanut butter. Only water to drink. Couldn't really muster up the urge to eat for fear I would experience symptoms. This morning stool is light in color and varies to light brown. Harder and no more mucous with it.
