Abdomen bloats after eating, constipation, pain, taken enema, gastric, nausea

Every time I eat, my abdomen bloats and I look about 8 months pregnant . I have been in pain from my stomach down the left side of my abdomen. I thought it might be constipation , so I used an enema. I only passed the liquid solution and no fecal matter. Today I had very stringy mucous in my stool (very little of both) when I did have a bowel movement. I have a lot of gas and nausea too.

Hi there....

Thanks for writing in.

Your symptoms might be attributed to acidity or indigestion.
Stress can also cause and worsen symptoms.

Please do the following:

Avoid spicy, oily and fatty food.
Avoid carbonated beverages, tea and coffee.
Avoid smoking and alcohol.
A course of antacids like pantoprazole might help.
Drink warm water at regular intervals.
Regular exercise 30 minutes a day 5 days a week.
Avoid lying down or exercising immediately after a meal. Wait for at least 3 hours after a meal,before lying down or exercising.

If none of the measures work, visit a gastroenterologist who might do an endoscopy or colonoscopy if necessary.

Hope this information was helpful to you.

Dr. Divya Kuttikrishnan.
