in the upper abdomen
somtimes when i keep sitting for longer i hve gas formastion pressurising my chest
also sometimes after eating i have
the same problem gas forming and pressure on the chest
i have done usg
nothing was found

Was it USG abdomen?
but only temp relief
What type of medicines have you tried?
What type of medicines have you tried?
so now i am worried
Yes I can understand that.
wat can be the reasons
Mostly bloating of stomach happens due to bacterial over-growth in stomach.
actully there is no such pain or somthing
but uncomfortable feeling
i take raw gourd(lauki) juice every day early morning
is it good or bad
your prediction is bacterial overgrowth?
I will ask a few questions to get a better understanding about your health.
It can be other things too.
It can be due to some medicines.
some medicines like
It can be caused by many medicines.
Mostly antibiotics are the culprit.
Natural medicines like homeopathy can also cause it.
Liver infections can also be the cause.
are these curable?
Eating clean food is very important to take care of it.
It depends on the cause.
If medicines have caused it, then you have to discontinue the medicine and give your stomach some time to recover from it.
should i take lauki juice?
Liver also has good regenerative capacity.
I do not recommend taking lauki juice on a regular basis.
i also feel i am gaining weight
Just drinking clean water, hygeinic and nutritious food and taking care of the cause is the best way to manage it.
I want you to go for blood tests to figure out a cause.
Some basic blood tests can figure out liver function capacity.
For that you will need to get fasting blood sugar levels done.
Can I ask you a few questions to know your health better?
What is your age?
What is your current weight?
You said that you recently gained weight.
How much have you gained and over what time?
i was 60
Over what time have you gained weight?
When was the last time you got blood tests done?
last many years
since it was not reqd
Since when do you have bloating?
1 and 1/2 year
Do you have any idea about the cause of it?
i wil have the enodoscopy
by next week
Is it already planned by your doctor?
this stat=rted with loose mtion
I think it is better to go for non-invasive tests like blood tests.
So was it an infection?
after having medicine
i was ok
and then it strted with
Do you remember the medicine?
Was it an antibiotic?
break for stoping the loose motion
and yes may be some antibiotic also
How long did you take the medicine?
for 7 -8 days
then i started with homeopathy
Why is the doctor suggesting endoscopy?
again i went to the gsatro when i was facing gas isues for aome month
he suggested me usg
diagnosed then it was endoscopy
Is he planning to take some biopsies during the procedure?
again i stated the homeopathy
but no blood test was told to me
wat you suggest
actully i wanted to avoid this endoscopy
I think blood tests are done before the invasive tests like endoscopy.
Endoscopy is better at pointing the diagnosis.
this this the second doctor i am reffering to
but none of them gave me any blood tests
all asking for endoscopy
I think I have an idea about your problem.
The medicines that you took at the start, they caused the normal flora to alter.
My suggestion is that you discuss with your doctor about stoping all medicines for now.
Let your body to recover from the effect of medicines.
In the meanwhile, also discuss with your doctor about doing blood tests before going for endoscopy.
Again it is your call to go for endoscopy or not.
It is not essential as you have no other symptoms apart from bloating.
Most probably it is only caused by bacterial overgrowth.
Even if he is suspecting celiac sprue, blood tests are the initial tests to do.
Celiac sprue is indigestion due to allergy to gluten component of wheat.
Thus my suggestion is that you talk to your doctor again and get a prescription for blood tests.
Are you there?
Did you understand the details I am providing?
thats wat i am wondring
Take nutritious diet.
why none of the doctors are telling blood tests
Fruits especially papaya helps with indigestion.
they are only focussing on usg and endoscopy
I do not know.
I would not go straight for endoscopy.
Ask your doctor about the diagnosis they are considering.
There has to be an indication, to consider endoscopy.
actully more than the indigestion on daily basis i have the gas formation, pressurising my chest, and some discomfort on the uupper abdomen
otherwise no probs at all
sometimes irregular motion probs are there
otherwise i am ok
Yes, I think it is bacterial overgrowth only.
the berbs are vaccumised
i have to force myself to take the berbs
Third possibility can be diabetes.
Get blood tested for blood sugar.
in my family my mothers family had it
Liver function also needs to be ruled out.
none from my fathers
Taking medicines may have caused some alteration in liver function.
Again I will go for blood tests to rule it out.
you mean to say
blood test can dagnosis this things
Yes, blood tests can help in narrowing down the possible causes.
Did you understand my point?
Are you there?
Do you have a question?
presently the doc has given me a medicine i dont remember the name
but the function is to neutralize the acid
starts with N
Is it working for you?
one tab before breakfast
in empty stomach everyday thats all
taken for two days
i was ok yesterday
but again today there is gas formation
presuure on the chest
You should take it for a few days to see an effect.
so can i drop the idea of the endoscopy for a week
It will protect your stomach.
and continue the medicine foe
You may delay it.
You may delay endoscopy.
Take the acidity medicine.
any special food u want me to eat ,or stop eating
Take healthy diet.
stop the gourd juice.
Yes fruits--5 servings a day
Stop the homeopathy as well.
Stop the antibiotics for a while.
Let your body recover for a month or even more.
ya i am taking any antibiotics
Do blood tests.
can give me the details
Talk to your doctor about use of endoscopy and what diagnosis he is considering.
i wan to recover as soon as possible
i am newly married

Are you taking contraceptives?

I think you are fine.
The blood tests that you can include in basic blood profile.
but this gas formation somtime creats discomfort for me
iam as such working
ALT, AST levels for liver function.
It is normal to have bloating after taking antibiotics.
It is a side-effect of the medicine.
but its continuing for last one and half years
Complete blood count has to be included in blood test
You may also want to be tested for typoid fever.
but i am ok
There are some immunological tests for celiac sprue. your gastroenterologist may consider that.
To rule out a sub-clinical typhoid.
Yes, it is just to rule it out.
Fasting blood sugar levels are also advised.
I think these blood tests should be enough for now.
Do you another query?
i hope my problem is cureable
it wil not lead to any operations and all
Well sometimes irreversible changes happen in body
i am worried
after taking medicines.
It should not be a cause of worry.
Take multi-vitamin supplements if you are planing for pregnancy.
no not now most probably next year
People live normal lives with such a problem.
Do you have another query?
Are you there?
but it leads to dicomort
i want to be normal
Give it some time to recover.
It will slow down with time and healthy life-style.
since last yyear very rarely i have normal life
It may get worse with more medicines.
every day i take forced berbs
You may also want to exercise regularly to boost your immunity.
that i wil do
You may do a massage of tummy to get rid of the gas.
