Excessive gas causes mayo clinic

Common Questions and Answers about Excessive gas causes mayo clinic

gas

Just came across your forum, I am 51 have had a hysterectomy in 1991 and with in the last year have had excessive viginal gas. When I move or go to stand up or cough it is really bad. It has nothing to do with sex but I was diagnosed with Crohn's disease in 1996 but am in total remission now and it still happens a lot. It is the worst and I am afraid to even think about having a relationship with anyone in the future because of it.
Then, this irregular beating in my chest scares me and causes anxiety, then the viscous cycle repeats. The anxiety causes more chest pain, more gas, and more discomfort. I have been trying everything to treat myself. Changed my diet (was drinking lots of soda and taking NSAID pain relievers every day) for the most part, but due to my work schedule I do eat too much fast food to this day. I drink nothing but water now, I have been watching everything I do.
Low PaO2 is called hypoxemia (low blood oxygen). The bone marrow may be stimulated to produce excessive red blood cells (RBC) in cases of chronic hypoxemia. From the Mayo Clinic article "Hypoxemia (low blood oxygen)"..
Thank you for your response. My husband has been referred to the Mayo Clinic. He is currently undergoing several tests. The possibilities you mentioned are being considered. I feel very confident the medical team at the Mayo Clinic will provide a diagnosis and treatment. Again, thank you for taking the time to answer my post.
It often gets worse as time goes by. Don't fool around with local doctors! Go to a GI clinic, like Mayo, in Florida, Shands at Univ. of Fl is good, etc. My wife spent 9 months with local GI doctors and was diagnosed with everything from Pelvic floor dysfunction to IBS and more. NONE WERE CORRECT. Search the web for Chronic Pancreatitis and read up on it. It hits more males than female and often in the 40's age range.
Do you live near a major university hospital (Cleveland Clinic, Univ. of Chicago, Northwestern, Mayo, etc.)? It might be worth it to take your records and have them evaluate you.
She is hoping to get her to review my records and report her findings and discuss them with the urogynocologist before my appt on May 9th. Also Mayo Clinic called back.. I am on their waiting list to go to their gastro clinic as well. They said they are #1 in america for gastro issues so I have to be put on a wait list for an opening. So hopefully in the mean time University of Chicago will be more help then Northwestern was for me.
The most common cause of gastroparesis is diabetes. I had this condition from hypothyroidism. Acid reflux is rarely due to high stomach acid just to add. My mother's severe GERD was due to very low stomach acid. She also has a hiatus hernia just to add. She takes betaine HCL with pepsin supplements and digestive enzyme supplements an no longer suffers GERD or LPR. Excerpt from Mayo Clinic...
She has had excessive amounts of gas and burping since day one. She hasn't been able to find any one type of food that causes the problems. They took her off of milk and put her on soy, and it didn't help. She landed up drinking lots of glucerna just to get her nutrients. As for her her diabetes, she was type II diabetic and it was under control with a minimum amount of medicine until two weeks ago when it dropped to 27 and we had to get the paramedics over to revive her.
The Flip-Turn Sinus Flush (by friggy) removes infected mucus from every part of your sinuses, which Mayo Clinic research shows is the cure for sinusitis, rather than treating sinus tissue with antibiotics. Regular saline irrigation does not work in the upper sinuses, because of gravity, but the Sinus Flush defeats gravity. It works incredibly well with bacterial and viral infections, and some but not all fungal infections. The Flip-Turn is the original, and still the best Sinus Flush.
teaching hospital/diagnostic centers like Mayo Clinic or Cleveland Clinic? If the doctors you have now aren't helping, the best thing you can do for yourself is move 'up the food chain' of doctors to more highly skilled practitioners. There is all kinds of testing and technology available at these big name hospitals that just doesn't exist elsewhere. It is worth the trouble, in my experience.
Just an update.. I got into the Mayo Clinic in MN and finally am getting answers. I had a slow transit study that was a 48 hour one as well as an EKG more blood work and a colonic manometry test. I have a very long, verry loopy slow transit colon. My pacemaker cells in my right side of my colon are dead or dieing off and it is causing me to back up all the way to my small intestine.
I do also think that excessive gas can get caught in the chest and cause the heart to race. The unfortunate thing is that doctors are so quick to throw different meds at you without trying to get to the bottom of what is actually causing the problem. When this all started for me I literally had a large black garbage bag full of different meds that had been given to me by different doctors. Thank goodness I had the knowledge not to take them and to research them first.
I've seen 4 cardiologists and spent lots of time at the Mayo Clinic because I believed my in-town docs HAD to be missing something. Doctors don't take cardiac issues lightly. My first cardio gave me a script for xanax the first time I saw him. I thought he was nuts, apparently he thought I was! Even though he did that, he still put me through the full run of tests and fought my insurance company to cover the CT-A at a time when most were not covering it yet.
I think the worst part hasn't been the pain, it's been the lack of answers from the medical authorities on what is wrong with me. The Mayo clinic has turned me down for an appointment, as they don't feel there is any more they can do for me that hasn't already been done... and I'm like... NO ONE HAS DONE ANYTHING! It's a nightmare, and my wife and I are so damn frustrated by the whole thing. The worthless neurologist I saw locally had me stand up, put my arms out and then touch my nose.
Went to Mayo Clinic to evaulate for this. Mayo told my I had it but that the nausea and the dizzy spell I had were not being caused by the Autonomic Neuropathy. They were able to determine by my leak of sweating in my lower extermeties. It ws not until this year when I started vomitting and not being able to stand for more than 5 minutes at a time that the Dr. finally took my bp and pulse while laying, sitting and standing. Needless to say my bp went from 138/80 to 100/?
Most doctors will not recognize this as a condition because they assume that yeast infections are controlled by our immune system, unless you have HIV or another auto immue disease. The Mayo Clinic has done much research on this. It appears by their data, and other labs have verified it, that everyone who has chronic allergies and sinus infections has fugal sinusitis.
Severe sharp navel pain that goes to pelvis and sometimes to the left side...so I was researching an found this site..I also found mayo clinic online and this is what I foung there regarding navel pain.. four possibilities it appears. So I am posting it for all of you here instead of everyone doing the research.. here you go, hope it helps! As for me Im going to the hospital again and let them run some tests.. wish I could find the E.R. doctor again and find out what he thinks, he was great!
The doctors and specialists remained baffled and referred me over to the Mayo Clinic as I still continued to have pain in my URQ under my right rib-cage (dull and achy at a 4-5 level with intermittent sharp stabby pain at a 9-10 level), fatigue, chills (but no fevers). The Mayo Clinic performed all of the scans again, which came up clean. They tried trigger point shots in the rectus abdominus muscles (which did not work). They found some interesting blood triggers.
My bowels are loose all the time. Another subject that is not so good to speak of is gas. It is horrible and it does not mattle what I eat. I am 50 years old.
plus just everyday relationship stressors...anyway...About one month ago, I went to the Mayo Clinic to see an endocrinologist. All my hormone levels were tested and my free and bioavailable were excellent in the upper one-third of the reference range, and my total testosterone was at 869...I was taking bromocriptine and an over the counter herbal supplement called Eurycoma longifolia for about 30 days until about one week prior to being tested at the Mayo Clinic...
My symptoms include stomach pain that moves all over my stomach area after almost every meal, but especially dinner, nausea, bloating, gas, intestinal pain, sore throat, sometimes a feeling of heaviness/pain at my sternum, but I do not have upper right quadrant pain. Isn't that the most common gallbladder problem symptom? The doctors suggest surgery, but I don't understand why it would be helpful to remove an at least partly functioning gallbladder?
So he is trying a Beta Blocker with me. In the literature from the Mayo Clinic it states that this can help with some tremors. I am also taking 400mg of Magnesium at night before bed. I started this on May 20th so it is too soon to tell if it is working. With the event monitor do you have to press the button when you have a tremor? It seems like that would wake you up for sure. Keep my posted! Hope your day is a nice one!
But, I have seemed to go backwards lately, with problems of my stomach churning after eating and excessive gas. Also have lots of pain in my chest AGAIN, mostly on the left side and in the middle,front and back. I hope this isn't going to be a normal thing. Aren't there more success stories out there???????
I finally talked to my mom about it and she tells me that she had almost identical symptoms ~20 years ago on the LEFT side, which her doctor labeled IBS. She said that you can get trapped gas in your colon, which then presses on your rib cage and causes discomfort. I'm going to the doc today and I'm going to ask if that can really happen! I understand what you mean about worrying though, my 38 year old cousin died last year of liver/kidney cancer, so it's scary....
I'm afraid I'll end up in a wheel chair! Does anyone know what causes it? I also have really really bad knots in my back from it, and get leg and arm cramps often.
Check at Mayo Clinic in Rochester, MN. They are doing research and tests there dealing with gastroparesis and are using different meds for this. Last I heard about Domperidone it was not all it was supposed to be.
Neuro is of no help and will probably end up at the Mayo clinic. I just got off all my supplements 2 days ago and am going back to the doctor next week to have it tested again. I also had a metabolic specialist look at may amino acids and said there was no evidence of metabolic syndrome. Anyway I would love to keep in touch and see if we can help eachother out with our doctors responses or test etc. I am a 38 year old female and my symptoms started about 1 year ago.
I am scheduled with a doctor at the Cleveland Clinic next week to see if there is anything else they can do. Because I am having so many I experience shortness of breath and dizzyness almost constantly.
(I gathered that info from Mayo Clinic and Johns Hopkins Websites and a few other individual websites hosted by bariatric surgeons) And if not the pancreas then Google searches on the following possibilities: perforated ulcer, bleeding ulcer, and adhesions. I go to see my pcp tomorrow and then the gastrointerologist Friday. These are areas of concern I'm going to have them focus on. I hope to have answers to share with everyone.
