Stomach gas on airplanes

Common Questions and Answers about Stomach gas on airplanes


Avatar m tn Despite this, I am pretty sure it is not simply the acid from the fruit as it does not happen all of the time and it is not dependant on an empty stomach. I think that it is the chemicals that are used on some fruits. Once the fruit reaches the lower depths of my stomach, my own chemicals start to break down the insecticides or whatever has been added during the production process and new chemical are formed – I think it is those ‘new’ chemicals that I am allergic to.
Avatar m tn The only other things I have going on that MAY be related, is an upper back pain/numbness... unknown cause. Been going on for years though. No diagnosis. So basically I'm out of ideas, and about to go insane. It's terrible at night not being able to sleep because of that feeling, and not being able to sleep with my girlfriend because I keep her awake with my constant moving around and itching...
Avatar n tn I usually get it after I've fallen asleep for a few minutes-- you breathe more shallow when you sleep, so get even less oxygen (and it's low on airplanes to begin with). I wake up feeling sick, get up, and pass out near the bathroom (never usually actually sick). The last time, my husband was with me, and while I didn't stand up, he said I was out cold, with my eyes open.
499534 tn?1328707778 Heard on tv that airplanes are actually one of the safest places to avoid a virus, since air is refreshed more frequently than nearly any other place. Apparently this is an urban myth. Said there are really no cases of mass outbreaks on airplanes. Different once they're on the ground, of course.
Avatar n tn just some thoughts..... oh - the reason i found this today is because for the first time ever, my stomach muscle on the left upper side below my rib cage is "fluttering". Its been doing it for 6 hours now on and off. its not painful, but its weird. So i googled and ended up here.....
Avatar n tn I just wanted to add my couple of cents to this discussion. I have seen a cardiologist and had the holter monitor, a stress test, several ECGs, and a full sonogram analysis. They found nothing. Apparently my PVCs are too infrequent to actually capture. Or my heart has performance anxiety. Who knows? But I can say that often it's scary, and sometimes I will have them back-to-back but I've never had one of the "runs" that I hear about.
398459 tn?1262189744 Next stop, all the way across the country to California for Jen, then back to Chicago for Krista (but first a stop in Vermont to gas up on RSSBD). CHOO CHOO … train is heading north to Alaska to pick up Sam, then gotta sniff out the where-abouts of Miky (where are you going to be Miky?).
Avatar f tn any updates on your LIS surgery? results of your condition/surgery?
387660 tn?1242600342 Shaking my head violently gives me about 5 seconds of clarity before things start going fuzzy again. Also happens to me on airplanes and boats, anything with that low bass vibration. If it is a blood preassure thing, would High-G Training do anything? Forcing the blood to your brain? I'm going to take off my shirt before I travel home to see if it is something where the collar is preassuring my neck.
Avatar f tn After reading everyones post, I feel more strongly that my air condition issues are connected to the Dermagraphism which is more of a extra sensitive reaction to pollutions and toxins. On MedHelp, a dr said the allergy maybe to a gas coming from the air condition. This makes alot of sense to me. Now I need to ask my doctor about how to treat these symptoms. I tell you my story just in case you relate to it, you can check out Dermagraphism which there is no known cause or cure. My dr.
Avatar m tn The feeling that I get while driving on the freeway or when a passenger on the freeway is that of someone having a glass of wine on an empty stomach (sleepy, spinning and disassociated from my body). It feels like everything is moving too fast for my eyes to my brain. I was on antidepressants for several years but no longer since they didn't work. Now I have not driven a car on the freeway since 2005. I can drive in my local town but not any further.
Avatar n tn He said I was allergic to 3 types of trees, 4 grasses, dust, molds and very mild allergy to cats. He put me on Rhinocort. NO results. Then I went back to him after already dumping over $200 in co-pays and medication and he said I have a sinus infection. I just finished the antibiotics and I still feel the same as I did when I first went to him in July. He had me on amoxicillin plus Astelin. I have tried Nasacort, Zyrtec, Claritin, Alavert, etc.... no relief.
211940 tn?1267884866 I have had this pain in both arms ( much worse in my left) for many years. Currently it is almost unbearable. I do sleep on my stomach with my arm bent under my pilllow. This is the most comfortable for me and the easiest position to fall asleep. However, I soon wake up to horrible pain. I have discovered if I sleep on my back with my arms straight beside me propped up on pillows I do not have as much pain and it is somewhat easier to sleep. I was amazed to find this blog.
Avatar n tn My son did this same thing we he started daycare. It was very hard on me to leave him and i would want to sit there with him until he calmed down. One of the caretakers finally suggested that i go ahead and leave even with him crying (to the point of making himself sick) They would tell me that he would calm down shortly after me leaving. So.....finally i listened (hard thing to do lol) left and stood outside the door observing where he couldn't see me.
