Avatar n tn could I have a pulled/strained/torn muscle or ligament in my chest wall that could be causing the chest discomfort? One day when I took 600 mg of Ibuprofen for a headache, I noticed it helped the chest discomfort some. Thank you for taking the time to read my question. This chest discomfort has been a big nuisance and I am tired of having it and just want to find out what is truly causing it.
Avatar n tn I avoided spicy foods and food that causes gas. I took Gas-Ex from time to time when the gas pain was severe. I took Pepto Bismol when I had diarrhea and cramping. I also took over the counter acid reducers for heartburn. My recommendation is to ask for a referral right away to a gynecologist and find out what other tests should be completed to further evaluate and treat the cyst.
Avatar m tn In addition, over-the-counter anti-gas medications may be given in severe cases. Stomach Cramping Stomach cramping is also a side effect of whey powder that is more likely to occur if whey powder is taken incorrectly. Cramping occurs if whey powder is not appropriately rehydrated, which results in poor transmit through the digestive system.
Avatar n tn Are these signs of a heart attack or heart condition?? And if so, what should I do?
Avatar m tn Also over the past few days it seems that every time I eat, no matter what it is or even if its very light or bland i get horrible upper GI gas and bloating. Now today, the discomfort in my upper abdomen and the upper GI gas is worse than usual. Again, the pain isnt severe or sharp. It feels some what broad. Sometimes in direct center of my upper abdomen, sometimes a bit left or right or across the entire area. Right now, its direct center and a bit more intense than it has been.
Avatar m tn An alternative cardiologist listened to me describe my gas and burping and passing wind and said the gas was connected to the afib...that gas was pressing on the vagus nerve and causing the heart to misfire and beat too fast and out of rhythm. I took gas X and eventually the symptoms and the heart problems went away. This was six years ago. Now, the problem is back. I have had a cardioversion to get the heart back to sinus rhythm, but it didn't work.
Avatar n tn I imagine the swelling you have is of course because your guts are full, and as the waste breaks down, it'll give off gas. An alka seltzer will help get the gas out of your stomach, and it'll also make you feel more comfortable. The only other thing I can think of about shingles is it does cause a paralysis of some kind... could be if it's near your abdomen, and once the shingles goes away, your digestion will improve, but I am not an expert on all that stuff.
Avatar m tn Constipation or gas can cause quite some severe pain. Gas may build in the transverse colon and cause pain under the ribs. Gas can build in other parts of large and small intestine. Gas is caused by bacteria, especially when you feed them with sugars. She can try a low-fructose diet. If she has fructose malabsorption, the diet should help in 4 days.
Avatar n tn I can relate to the severe gas pain, however my pain comes on at the end of my period. I get bloated and i pass a lot of gas however i am in a lot of pain and have to be absent from work. My feaces contain mucous during this period and i have sleepless nights.After my period i still have a lot of gas but it does not cause bloating neither pain. Gasx has given me some relief from the bloating but i still have the gas. Please help.
Avatar f tn This extreme stress has caused the bowel to become very tortuous, spasming trying to move the feces/gas through thus causing the diverticuli.The motility of the gut is now very poor. Trying to pass a bowel movement even with massive prescribed fiber is very difficult. When small amounts do pass, they are explosions. What apparently has happened to me is because of the surgery, food is being expeled immediately from the stomach.
Avatar n tn I usually have gas anyway from ibs, but this was/is excessive and increased), pain in ovary and back area and leg, frequent urination, and general malaise. The pain wasn't as bad so I never went to see what was wrong. This time I was missing periods in conjunction with all the other symptoms so they were diagnosed. I also went through another period of almost constan pain on my right ovary with severe constipation during periods, but nothing showed up on ultrasound.
Avatar f tn Discomfort is probably from gas from fibers. Cut them down somewhat, also reduce sugary foods (sweats, fruits, cola...) You may also want to have a test for H. pylori.
Avatar f tn Can anyone help us? I have a swollen belly, constant gas, severe bloating after eating. It's miserable. Should I see a doctor, try the charcoal, or just continue to suffer? My e-mail address is ***@****.
407149 tn?1211736107 I, too, would like to know what causes this. It is very annoying, considering that the smell of gas/exhaust makes me nauseous.
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...

Thank god, but my symptons still persist on and off. Lately on. When I began to feel sick I was in a abusive relationship and I haven't felt the same.
Avatar n tn i know my father had gall bladder problems that weren't so severe or sudden and they went on for some time. he later had it removed. a visit to the doc( gastroenterologist) might help. if it happens again, i would try to remeber what i ate or drank that day to see if that plays any part in it. good luck!

15480 tn?1302533402 I am currently 25+ weeks pregnant and at least a few times a day I have abdominal pain and discomfort (pulling, stretching feeling). It does not feel like contractions because it can last up to an hour. I had kidney stones last week and it does not feel like that again. This has been happening on and off for weeks. I am not sure if it is just the extra weight of my belly causing the discomfort. Has anyone else experienced anything like this? Is this normal?? Thanks for your help.
Avatar f tn Nothing rolling around in there and I don't pass gas at all.I have had this problem now for a couple of years off and on and from mild to severe. Right now though, it's the worse I have ever seen it. It is causing me a lot of problems, discomfort and pain. The pain is up against or under my ribs and I often feel like I have a pinched side on both sides. Kind of like when you swim after eating. I can't even walk, really. Not normally, I waddle like a duck.
Avatar n tn I had my gallbladder removed about 7 years ago and immediately afterwards experienced severe cramping, dull burning and general stomach discomfort when I would eat cheese (but not milk or milk products). The "attack" seemed to subside after taking alka selzer but not other products such as mylanta. This condition lasted for several weeks and then disappeared. The problem is that I've recently begun to experience this condition again.
Avatar n tn constant feeling of hunger like grumbling of the stomach and acidic feeling of throat even after I eat. 3. gas 4. I get hungry much faster and I never feel full. 5. Some pain in the upper abdominal area the doctor diagnosed it as "gastritis" and asked me to buy maalox over the counter and so I did.
Avatar n tn (When present in the small intestine, bacteria digest ingested carbohydrates before they can be digested and absorbed by the small intestine.) What are non-drug treatments for gas? For the rare person who swallows air to the point of discomfort, techniques are recommended that are supposed to reduce the amount of swallowed air. These methods include chewing particularly well and then swallowing with the mouth closed and sucking liquids only through a straw.
Avatar m tn After every meal I get gas discomfort and have difficulty burping. I also constantly feel weak, tired, and have difficulty concentrating. The issues are much worse whenever I try to do aerobic exercise, unless I can do it on a completely empty stomach, the gas pushes up into my chest and causes significant discomfort. Immediately when I jump in the water to swim, I feel the gas pushing upward (buoyancy). It causes such discomfort than I can't do these activities.
Avatar n tn I am a 47 year old male who started having some minor chest discomfort about 11 months ago. To be safe, I went to the ER and had it checked out. They told me after about an hour that it did not appear to be anything about my heart, but had me stay overnight to runs some tests. I had a complete cardiac work up including blood tests, xrays and a Thallium stress test, all of which came back normal. I was released with instructions to follow up with my doctor.
Avatar n tn I am a 45 year old woman and have experienced CONSTANT discomfort in my right lower (and sometimes upper) ribcage. The pain "travels". Actually I would not call it pain, sometimes it feels as though there is pressure from inside pushing outward against the ribs. Like a wadded sock under my ribs! The discomfort has been present for over a year, but never so bad or painful that I wanted to immediately seek help. However, living everyday w/discomfort is growing old!
