What indicates an abdominal bloating,discomfort and pin on left side?

For the last couple of weeks I have been experiencing abdominal bloating and discomfort. It feels like there is extra fat there but my weight has not changed. Occasionally there is pain-especially if I roll over in bed too quickly. Usually on my left side

Hello dear,

The symptoms as mentioned in your post is attributed to accumulation of gas secondary to increased acid production in the stomach.

Symptomatic relief can be obtained with intake of Pantoprazole preparation (to be taken twice a day before meals) & antacid gel (to be taken after meals).
They prevent formation of excess acid in the stomach & provide symptomatic relief.
Anti-spasmodic preparations like Dicyclomine can also be used for symptomatic relief.

And it is also needed that you take certain precautions regarding your diet & lifestyle, such as:
1. Take soft, plain, non-spicy foods
2. Drink lots of water to maintain adequate hydration
3. Avoid fast foods & gas producing food products like cabbage, etc.
4. Avoid smoking & alcohol.
5. Keep away stress, think positive.

If symptoms still persist, kindly consult a Gastroenterologist for proper clinical examination.
An Ultrasound scan of Abdomen & Pelvis will be helpful.

There is no need to worry, you will be fine.
Wishing a good health.
Take care.
