 I think you might have been having a problem in digestion. I suggest you to take some pain medication for you.

I think there is some problem with fat metabolism. You better see a Gastroenterologist/Hepatologist.

I have had gas, bloating, belching, upper stomach pain, and weight loss of 30 pounds since 3/1. Two endoscopies show inflamed stomach lining. H pylori has been cleared. Antibiotics taken for SIBO with no change. GES done and no gastroparesis at that time. All blood work is normal. CT scan is normal. MRI is on Monday. I have had some relief from using enteric coated peppermint tabs before eating. I developed spasms/hiccups after the Xifaxamin for SIBO . I use Bacolfen which helps somewhat. Honey helped but gave me diarrhea. All BM s are normal, otherwise. I had a breast reduction in 8/16 and these problems started sporadically after that surgery and became worse in January and chronic by March. I continue to lose weight but do eat breakfast and lunch. I ve tried dietary changes and they make no difference. My doc is head of the GI clinic at University of Washington. I m seeing a second GI doc in that department on Wednesday.

I m a 38 year old woman. I have gained 10 lbs in 2 months but my most concerning symptoms are serious abdominal bloating - my stomach is distended, to where I went up two sizes of pants in the last 3 weeks, abdominal pain, feelings of pressure/tightness, especially in my lower belly area. My upper abdomen hurts, like I pulled muscles type of pain. The discomfort and pain is increasing. The bloating is mostly extended out versus wide, if that makes sense? Like I look like what I would imagine a pregnant person would look three or 4 months in. I can t be pregnant - I m on the pill and I had my period 3 weeks ago, though it was not normal. I made an appointment with a gastroenterologist - I have problems with severe constipation/ibs for almost my entire life, but nothing has changed recently. The first available appointment isn t until December. I cannot last that long - not sure how to proceed.
