Extreme bloatedness, slightly releaved after vomiting. Reason?

Hi im worried about my girlfriend, she experiencing extreme bloatedness to the point were she vomits to feel slightly relieved. A few days before this started she took the morning after pill and although I think this has something to do with it it isn t the first time she feel this bloatedness. Yesterday night she told me the bloatedness shifted towards one side and that its really uncomfortable. I asked her when was the last time she went to the washroom and she doesn t remember. It has happens I would say once a month that she tells me she feels bloated but not to this extreme..

Dear sir, this is unspecific symptom but usually it is caused by IBD, gastritis including hiatal hernia or food alergies. She needs to do GE work up. It means that gastroscopy and colonoscopy must be done to rule out any kind of mechanical obstruction. If nothing is found then it can be IBD or some other functional intestinal disorders. If she feels bette rafter vomiting it means that the air and fluids are "trapped" in stomach and there is a problem with passage of food through pylorus. It can be caused by hiatus hernia or pyloric hipertrophy and stomach sphincters disorders. So gastroscopyy with biopsy will rule this out. Also she should change her diet and avoid things which aggravates symptoms.

Wish you good health.
