Gas causing muscle spasms

Common Questions and Answers about Gas causing muscle spasms


Avatar f tn With Lupus your muscles can be affected. Spasms can happen more when you are low in potassium and magnesium. You may want to up your intake of bananas, potatoes, etc. or look at taking a magnesium supplement to help.
Avatar f tn Many thanks for your helpful reply. When I have the spasms in the diaphragm area my abdomen does not become hard. I get a pain like a stitch in my left hand side, my sternum becomes very painful and sore, like the skin has been burnt, so sore I cannot bear to touch it. The spasms affect the secondary muscles of respiration, which is the cause of the breathlessness. Are not the secondary muscles of respiration smooth muscle?
Avatar n tn For almost 1 year now I have had horrible muscle spasms in my abs when I do sit ups. I do a lot of running and other exercise and my abs never tighten up like that any other time other than doing sit ups. Everytime I try to do sit ups I can get through about 10 then the upper right abdominal area completely tightens and feels like a really really bad charlie horse. I'm just looking for any advice or experience with this that anyone can give me.

Avatar m tn junk foods are hard for the body to digest causing your digestive tract to bubble and gas up. for the next 2 weeks, quit it with the junk foods, eat lots of fibre to flush out the plumbing. if after about 2-3 weeks of not junk and lots of fibre, your still feeling these problems, cut out all milk products, sometimes, randomly people become lactose intolerant. lactose is a natural sugar in milk and dairy products.
Avatar f tn Could these conditions cause muscle spasms? Could my muscle spasms be causing my PVCs/PACs? I never had PVCs/PACs before I started having spasms. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Avatar n tn But I had a similar attack on the right side about nine days ago, and I let it go for a few days. I could feel the muscle spasms going under my right arm, under and into the breast. Went to a different massage therapist who really presssed too hard and the pain got worse. I had breast cancer seven years ago, so immediately called my oncologist, had a cat scan of the chest. Nothing.
Avatar f tn I have been having painful stomach spasms for the past two years. I am 46 year old female who is other wise great health. A few years ago I had bladder spasms that lasted a year and finally went away. The stomach spasms have not responded to the spasm meds. I just got off hysomine and librax because neither was working well. I have had a lot of sonograms and cat scans the most recent showed 3 small liver lesions. Nobody can tell me why I am spasming and how to stop them.
433485 tn?1321816990 i've heard the same story from Gi's that if for example you lack sleep or you are stressed in life that it can affect your bowel habits and start muscle spasms.. usually you get the same drill, Fiber..water..exercise..stress free.. blah blahblah.. so they'll probably try to put you on antidepressants (which i hated) to help build 5-HTP and help your gut/mind ignore pain or lower the pain threshold I guess.. that's worth a try (I just hated those antidepressants..).
Avatar n tn I have muscle spasms in my abdominal, as well as many other parts of my body. I did notice that sometimes stress/anxiety brings these on. For me, it could also be my Mitochondrial problem. Their painless but a nuisance.
Avatar m tn My chiropractor told me that it was caused from the vagus nerve being activated, thereby causing the spasms. I did recently have an attack; however, I believe it was caused by a digestive issue I was having at the time. These are so debilitating that I am exhausted the next day. I don't have pharmaceuticals at my disposal and don't really like to take them, so I take high amounts of liquid magnesium which will relax the muscle enough for me to sleep.
867787 tn?1318939830 // Now about the recording of these often strange and difficult to discribe events, when they are happening i cant imagine being able to calmly locate the camera, turn it on, point and shoot straight enough to see the problematic limb(s) whilst i'm thrashing about and screaming. At the time i'm thinking of nothing but the pain cheifly stopping the pain, i think i'd have to move into the big brother house or rent someone lol.
Avatar f tn I have had gallbladder attacks in the form of muscle spasms from mild to severe enough they causer scar tissue..but my gallbladder is gone now..and i have still had these pains...only occasionally and on the mild side for almost a decade...i was diagnosed with acid reflux..can acid reflux cause this type of pain..and are tums enough? It only happens when i dont eat..never when i do?? Which i thought was odd for acid reflux.

Avatar n tn it will eventually lead into not being able to feel your bowel. Fourth, Bowel Spasms. Meaning, the bowel spasms and gas is released. Fifth, there is the swallowing of air, which is very hard to change I would suppose. Unless anyone knows of a way to change that? I do think that there might be a problem, or some abnormality in the muscles of us. Being that we cannot feel it. Other than that, we may just have a case of IBS or something rather insignificant and easy to control.
Avatar n tn There is no pain associated with the bouts, just the need to pass the gas, to relieve to build-up, as it were. When I am plagued by these bouts of gas, I do notice, however, that my bowel movements tend to be more "sticky" and not well formed (flaky...some formed, the sticky part when cleaning myself up, and some flakes). The color is usually a medium to dark brown (twice, many months apart during bouts I noticed the stool had a greenish color.
Avatar f tn Dear Jane, After a fundoplication, individuakls are unable to belch. Accu,ulation on gas in th estomach or small intestine can cause the gas bloat syndrome that you describe. The offending gas may come from digested food although usually it is the result of swallowed air. the air can come from outh breathing or talking when eating. The take down of the fundoplication should have relieved your symptoms. The propulsid should also be helpful.
Avatar n tn Of course I cannot find any info on vaginal gas and what may be causing it. Thought maybe my tidbit may help some of you. Not looking forward to calling the Gyn...
Avatar n tn The Dr was awesome I've been on Dilaudid for pain for 7 months now I'm starting Percocets, but my question is that the spasms and cramps seem to be causing my pain. If I'm not taking loads of Immodium I go to the bathroom 10 or more times a day and really have a hard time in getting there on time. But when I'm not going to the bathroom I spasm terribly and just wandering if anyone has had these problems.
143746 tn?1301278422 I have been having a number of health problems for three months, including shooting nerve impulses, occasional muscle spasms, tendonitis, and vision disturbances (blurry vision, conjunctivitis, and dry eye). The worst symptom right now, though, is that when I eat anything or drink any liquid, I will feel light-headedness, headaches, and have a lot of gas pressure. I am avoiding high gas-producing foods like cabbage, cauliflower, beans, etc.
Avatar n tn Now I think I've noticed some weakness in my right leg - the thigh muscle looks less developed than the right especially the kind of triangular on the top of the thigh. And the leg/thigh feels underpowered. (I don't do much exercise-am a writer) I'm 37 male. I had ME/CFS in 1992 was very bad for 3/5 years but recovered to previous levels of fitness. during ME I did have calf twitching, and was tested OK - it went away and have never had it again since 1 month ago when back with a vengeance.
Avatar n tn The strangest symptons though are just constant vibrations or movements in my intestinal area, bad heart burn, bad gas, and a feeling like I have to burp but just cant. Im hoping that my heart is fine and the feelings are just from my focusing on it too much, but I just dont know. Can anyone relate to this? Its been 3 months and I cant even sleep anymore.
Avatar f tn My GI doc says I have a tight anal sphincter muscle and feels it is nerve related, and to finish my evaluation. Does anyone know how MS affects the anal sphincter muscle? I attempted to do some rectal kegel exercises, but they only make the nerves in my spine sting more. Thanks in advance.
2085202 tn?1373203340 He is wanting to write this off as anxiety and muscle spasms. Here's the thing ;I am losing tons of weight. The pain happens at night and am waking up to the pain making this a hard pill to swallow as just anxiety. I have been near tears with how persistent this has become. He has run bloodwork on the liver and other things including the white blood cell count and everything has turned out to be ok.
Avatar n tn I have never been a migraine person, or someone who has suffered from muscle spasms. Before all of this started, I was a healthy person who lives a healthy lifestyle. The night that the spasm started, it got progressively worse, by the next morning, I was unable to turn my head, and pain was shooting down my left arm into my pinky finger.
Avatar f tn The other thing that really helps is I take natural Digestive Enzymes with every meal, I just pop those right before I start eating. I also take probiotics daily and for the muscle spasms I take 800-100mg of Magnesium. These things have helped me tremendously, I still have episodes when the symptoms flair up and at those times I try not to freak out and just eat a very bland diet until everything settles down again.
Avatar n tn could all these things be linked, could i have a hyper allergic reaction to something which triggers of the coughing, hte violent coughing inturn has weakend the pshinter muscle in my chest and produced the hernia? could the acid reflux or the gas given off by the extra acid be now triggering the violent coughing fits? and inturn then damaging my vocal cords?.
Avatar n tn I am not sure whether the A/Fib is causing the gas/bloating and the asthma attack or the other way around. Another interesting symptom that happened to me was when I went to the ER with an A/Fib event. It took them 14 hours to gain control of my heart rythym. I had to urinate a lot. I'm talking quarts. I found it surprising to me that the doctors did not know why, for I know it was related to the A/Fib event. Most Doctors are not scientists, nor do they have the time to be.
Avatar f tn T4 only with Hashimoto for years caused me to lose muscle mass, strength and the ability for muscles to recover from simple activity let alone working out. After 9 months with T3 (dessicated) I started to regain strength and was able to ski pain free for the first time in years. That med was discontinued so I had to start all over on another brand. I had to severely reduce physical activity again, getting slowly better. It is my opinion that some people do get permanent tissue damage from hypo.
