Why does my husband's stomach bloat and feel like passing out when he eats ?

my husband (25yrs. old) is having problems when he eats. he said that when he eats he feels like he s going to pass out, he sweats, and even if it s a little bit of food he bloats right at the height of where his stomach is. He does have a history of drinking and taking too many nsaids so i m not sure if it is that all catching up with him or something new.

Hi,thanks for query.He should be having acid peptic disease.Drinking and NSAID both can produce ulcer in the G.I.Tract and leads to this kind of problem.Please stop taking them immediately.Give him bland diet,avoid smoking or tobacco in any form.Ask him to take proper rest.Most importantly visit your doctor and get treatment.He needs regular treatment for this.bye.

Dear Nicole

Since your husband has a history of chronic alcoholism and consumption of NSAIDS,his symptoms can be attributed to a chronic peptic ulcer with stricture formation(Narrowing of stomach outlet). he should immediately consult a gastroenterologist who may do an Endoscopy and Barium swallow X-ray of your husband. You should not ignore this problem and get going as soon as possible.
