Stomach bloated, constant rumble, relief on bowel movement. Is it due to stress? Diagnosed afib

I m a 37 year old male. I m having some issues with irregularity and stomach bloating . I will be feeling fine for a couple months and all of a sudden I wake up and my stomach is so bloated I can t stand myself and I feel like I can t go to the bathroom. It will last for about 7-10 days and go away. I have a constant rumble in my stomach during the episodes. It s been going now for about a week and some days I feel like I can t go and yesterday I had watery stool twice in about two hours. Sometimes I feel relief with bowel movements other times not so much. I have quit a bit of stress in my life and was diagnosed with afib related to stress so I don t handle stress very well and am wondering if this is just another case of my body dealing with my stress. Any help would be appreciated !!!!!

Thanks for writing your query.

After reading your post, it seems that your symptoms might be due to gastritis.
I would suggest that you should go for an Endoscopy along with a stool examination.

I would advise that you can take an antacid like Omeprazole 40 mg once a day before meals along with Domperidone 30 mg.
A probiotic along with a digestive enzyme preparation after meals will have added benefits.

Following precautions will be helpful :-
1. Avoid spicy and oily foods.
2. Avoid being empty stomach for long periods.
3. Avoid smoking and alcohol, if any.
4. Avoid self medications especially painkillers and steroids.
5. Drink lots of water daily.

Further medical management can be planned according to the reports of the investigations.

I hope this is helpful to you.
