Hello,

Long-acting hormones may cause gastritis still many problems like nausea, vomiting, irregular cycles or weight gain or edema of legs etc.

So use tablet pantoprazole. Avoid spicy food and oily food. If symptoms not improved please consult your doctor he will examine and treat you accordingly.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Regards,

I have been suffering from the same problem now for 10 months and the symptoms are slowly getting worse. Every day I bloat (massively so that I have to undo my trousers, cant sit down at work etc) and it isn t food related as I tried not eating anything at all and it still happened. I have a constant niggling pain in the left hand side of my belly button that gets worse when I m bloated. I seem to have a mixture of constipation and diarrhea because I go to the toilet once a day but the only way I can describe it is that lots of feces is being held back and only a small bit of what s in there is being released! When I bloat up, I have bad wind too which also makes me think this. After I have been to the toilet the first time (usually always in the morning) I can t go again for the rest of the day no matter how much it feels like I need to to relieve my stomach pains and bloating. When I do go, the stools are very thin and come out easily in lots of little stools rather than one regular sized stool! I keep hearing funny noises coming from my stomach like a clicking sucking type noise and when I have been to the toilet or eaten, the noises are louder and more frequent. The only way to describe the constant feeling is that my stomach is too cramped inside and there isn t enough room for everything! It seems to be getting worse as I am now waking up bloated and in pain - feel very sluggish all the time and have no energy to do anything at all. Even though I have at least 8 hours sleep per night and don t drink alcohol etc before bed, I wake up feeling very hungover and that I just need to go back to sleep. The pain in my left hand side is worsening too - when I touch that now when I m bloated, it feels like a big bruise. Also I have noticed that the less I eat or the more I go to the toilet, the bloating seems to stay the same but the pain in my side is a lot worse. I have had blood tests, stool tests and I have no food allergies of any kind or intolerances. I have had tablets for IBS, which didn t help at all and if anything the pain in my stomach was a bit worse on them. I recently went for an ultrasound scan which they said was clear. For about 4 years, I have also been suffering from bleeding and brown discharge in between my periods but it happens every month. I had a smear and swab for this which was normal so I dont know if that could be related or not. Any advice would be appreciated as I feel that my life is turning so miserable I m always in a bad mood over this and feel angry with everyone all the time! The doctor doesn t know what to make of me but I m worried it will be something serious that is going unfound and that it is only getting worse. Thanks for your help and please ask if you need to know any further info.

Hi, I am a 35 yr old male and recently during a full physical, my doctor found that I have hypothyroid and has prescribed 25mcg of synthyroid. After having it for two weeks I have started getting frequent headaches, bad stomach, chest discomfort. Hence I stopped the medicine. Now the symptoms are persistant and my neck lymph nodes have started hurting as well. Do I need to seek emergency help? Should I go for a second opinion before I go on a long term treatment of synthyroid?
