Stomach pain bloating unable to pass gas

Common Questions and Answers about Stomach pain bloating unable to pass gas


Avatar f tn ever since childhood ive had gas issues, but now as an adult I am either unable to sleep or im waking up early in the morning in so much pain I can barely move because of the gas and discomfort in my stomach. so bad it makes me vomit. the only way the pain goes away is if I take a hot bath, vomit or go to the bathroom. what could this be?
Avatar n tn By the time it was a decent time to go to doctor. Bloating was gone. This last gas/bloating attack was more severe... even though now I am not bloated and I can breath normally. I can feel pain in my left back. Not to sounds to dramatic but I am afraid I will not survive another gas/bloating attack. I am trying to find a common denominator in between the two separated incidents. Perhaps was the bread? That I was constipated? The food was bad? I don't want to go through it ever again.
Avatar n tn Gas X / Charco-Caps (only effective before gas reaches the intestine) Lactaid (for dairy) Beeno (digestive enzyme) Peppermint oil capsules (to help alleviate intestinal gas/bloating) Papaya enzymes (to help alleviate intestinal gas/bloating) Prilosec OTC (tried this for 2 weeks even though I don’t have heartburn) Digestive Advantage – IBS (even though I don’t have IBS, I thought it might help w/ the bloating) Dairy-free Diet – 9 day trial. I was diligent about avoiding hidden dairy.
Avatar n tn Try avoiding ALL dairy. I have found a sudden intolerance to dairy which leads to gas and severe stomach pain. I too have IBS and stress is a major factor. I have found I can control the stomach pain (for the most part) if I avoid stress and stay completely way from the dairy.
Avatar n tn Neddypoo put it pretty well. I get the same symptoms when I am "A Fibbin". In addition to the stomach bloating and upper GI gas, my asthma kicks in. I often need to take my metered dose inhalor when I am "A Fibbn". However, I will say that I am not entirely sure these symptom, which are certainly related, are not present after the A Fib event. I am not sure whether the A/Fib is causing the gas/bloating and the asthma attack or the other way around.
Avatar f tn that is literally trapped air/ gas because I am unable to burp.. so sticking to a low gas diet is the only thing besides Phazyme (a stronger form of Gas X) that can be done for it. Dairy is a HUGE gas causer. I had to give up ice cream which is my favorite craving food cause it is the WORSE for causing the girgles in my chest as well as gas pains etc. I had to give up a lot of foods I love to control this.
Avatar n tn For the past 2 1/2 months, I've had severe nausea, SEVERE stomach pain (in the middle, sometimes to the left--ALL DAY LONG--like a stabbing pain that lasts and lasts---and occassional "attacks" where the pain goes straight through to my back and shoulder blades that last for several hours), diahrreah, constipation, and regular stools, followed by more constipation, diahrreah, etc. EXTREME weight loss---35+ pounds in 8 weeks and still losing. Loss of appetite..
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 But I wanted to ask one question of you all. Just before expelling the gas I have a short sharp pain in lower abdomen that lasts only a short time but there appears to be a build up to the pain. Thanks in advance for responding.
Avatar n tn Now I have had severe bloating and gas pain for 2 days without being able to pass gas and my pvcs are back. Sorry I cant really help much but u guys are not alone. I am a 37 year old male.
Avatar n tn Hi Ladies, I am 9 weeks pregnant and I have TERRIBLE gas pain and I have to get some relief! My Dr. is out of the office this week. What is safe to take during pregnancy? I can't take this anymore! Anytime I eat ANYTHING I have stomach pain for hours. Any thoughts are appreciated!
Avatar n tn It is worth asking your doctor to do a stool sample for H pylori, after the antibiotics it took about 3 months for my stomach to get back to normal, but now no more hearburn, gas, bloating, and I have gained back 14 lbs of the 20 lbs that I lost.
Avatar f tn I personally think it works better than a stool softener. My stomach is still bloating and it hurts when trying to pass gas. The gas comes & goes and when it moves it made my tummy hurts.
148354 tn?1211237506 Hi,I'm just wondering with anyone else's experience with gallstone pain if pain radiated to groin/pelvic area? (referred pain?)is it possible to have CONSTANT pain with gallstones? I'm having non stop 24/7, pain/fever/chills/nausea, so far no vomiting,eating makes it worse,even bland low fat food.Also having severe chest/back/flank pain on BOTH sides. I do have a 1.9cm complex cyst in right ovary but doubt since it is so small it is causing all the pelvic pain distress.
Avatar n tn I dont even feel like eating at all because my stomach is in pain, or will be once I eat a meal. The only thing that seems to bring relief is taking a pepcid complete but this only seems to last such a short time(an hour or so). Im gonna call my GI tomorrow to ask his opinion but is it possible for the PPI to just stop working abruptly like this? Also, could I need a higher dose or just switch over to another PPI to see if it is effective?
Avatar n tn Later on about 4 years of age a DR told us that he had a condition where there was air on his stomach and that he needed to walk after dinner to pass gas. He explained that he was swallowing to much air when eating and talking, My son heard all of this and was cautious about eating to fast.He seemed to do a bit better and then the tummy aches started, it almost always felt better after he pooped but before and during he would cry and scream. He also went about 4 - 5 times a day.
Avatar f tn I have tried looking up ovarian pain on google, but it keeps brining up cysts, or ovarian cancer, i don't think I have either, but this pain is annoying, so any reccomendations on what to take to stop the pain. I went in last month for a pap smear, and they didn't feel any cysts on my ovaries at all!! So please help!!!
Avatar n tn It is literally disabling. If I am fortunate enough to pass gas, there is mild and momentary relief as the gas makes it's way outof my body, but only then. No pain medicines, over-the-counter gas/acid reducers or laxatives relieve the pressure at all. I have tried nearly EVERYTHING and usually throw it all up anyway. Even an enema does nothing. I would LOVE to go to the hospital when I get like this just to be given morphine intravenously, or something to knock me out until it all passes.
Avatar m tn The first time this happened it felt like I was about to get a stomach virus (crampy gas pains and bloating) didn't think much about it, took some gas x with little to no relief, in a day or so I felt fine. The next time this happened I was going to a road race, felt bloated and like I had to have a bowel movement or pass gas but could not. I decided to get checked by my doctor who evaluated me and sent me for some blood work (CBC and H pylori) all which came back fine.
Avatar n tn My husband has been suffering for 9 years (off and on) with these same rotten egg burps, stomach pain, diarrhea, then vomitting and no one has really been able to help him. The interesting thing is that about a year ago, my son (ten yrs old) and I joined him and are having the same symptoms except that I don't vomit. Our other younger children often have diarrhea but no other symptoms, so I don't know if it is related or something completely different.
Avatar m tn When gas moves from the stomach to the the chest, esophageal nerve endings become stretched, creating the extreme discomfort that causes some to panic. The best way to alleviate chest gas pain is to ingest a substance that will eliminate it in the form of a belch or flatulence. Carbonation Remedy This is the easiest remedy of all. Drink a decent sized serving of an extremely carbonated beverage (i.e. club soda), and--preferably in private--let out a a tremendous burp.
Avatar m tn Can burp, pass gas without any relief. Unable to eat solid food, as increases pain and I already feel over-full! Sticking with liquids and smoothies. Everything I ingest causes diarrhea, but pain doesn't subside.
Avatar n tn I have always been constipated, able to go literally weeks without passing a stool, severe gas pains and unable to pass gass at all (no matter how hard I try which causes hemroids). I have been through several tests and ultrasounds (everytime I have an ultrasound the x-ray tech complains b/c they can't see the organs through all the gas!). I had the "egg test" and doc said I have a very slow digestive system. Been told I have a slushy gallbladder and fatty liver.
Avatar n tn my main reasons for doing this are to relax my stomach ect and try to pass wind,and burp to ease the pain. Also a hot bath helps, but be careful if you think you may faint.....My bouts seem to be brought on by a number of things,...eating foods such as onions, coleslaw ect, or not eating all day and rushing a meal. or being stressed,gassy drinks don't help either..
Avatar n tn I am still having a hard time, however, and have not been able to pass gas, which causes much pain. So much for an easy recovery, huh girls??? Went back to work on day 5, but can't say I was totally ready. I am now having terrible lower left pelvic pain with bowel movements and laughing. Has also been harder to breathe, and if I attempt stairs, am out of breath by the top of them.
640719 tn?1277143630 Doctor said if I am having to take that much to control the stomach pain then I need to go to ER. I know better as a EMT-Specialist then to take all these meds at once that I can become Alkalitic but at this point I'll do anything to stop the pain. I'll probably wait until my next attack and just go :( This thyroid has overtaken my life... I never knew what hypo/hyper pain was until now.
Avatar f tn In almost every case you are supposed to be asleep for a colonoscopy or drugged to the point of being unable to remember the procedure afterwards. It seems very odd that the doctors would perform this with you awake, and with the ability to be able to fell the amount of pain you where going through.
Avatar n tn I'm not belching or flatuating, which I'm guessing I would be doing if the pain was related to the air in my stomach. Also, the pain is radiating into my back. It's just awful! Should i call a Doctor? On a lighter note, my throat doesn't hurt in the least.
148354 tn?1211237506 and always having crampy pain,I also been told I have IBS,or is this part of having endo? I also have bad gas and trapped gas pain (and severe bloating and pressure (adhesions on bowels? ) I either have the runs (sorry to be graphic) or constipated.Is there any hope or help for relief? I also have had few partial small bowel obstructions from this.I've tried different diets,high fiber diets,liquid diets..nothing helps,I'm always miserable! I cant function or work ~at my wits end~Stephanie p.
