Why does my husband's stomach bloat and feel like passing out when he eats ?

my husband (25yrs. old) is having problems when he eats. he said that when he eats he feels like he s going to pass out, he sweats, and even if it s a little bit of food he bloats right at the height of where his stomach is. He does have a history of drinking and taking too many nsaids so i m not sure if it is that all catching up with him or something new.

Hi,thanks for query.He should be having acid peptic disease.Drinking and NSAID both can produce ulcer in the G.I.Tract and leads to this kind of problem.Please stop taking them immediately.Give him bland diet,avoid smoking or tobacco in any form.Ask him to take proper rest.Most importantly visit your doctor and get treatment.He needs regular treatment for this.bye.

Dear Nicole

Since your husband has a history of chronic alcoholism and consumption of NSAIDS,his symptoms can be attributed to a chronic peptic ulcer with stricture formation(Narrowing of stomach outlet). he should immediately consult a gastroenterologist who may do an Endoscopy and Barium swallow X-ray of your husband. You should not ignore this problem and get going as soon as possible.

I having a bloated feeling in my upper stomach when I eat. I get relief with sparkling water that allows me to burp. However, it returns with my next bite of food. There is no burn feeling and I don t know what indigestion feels like unless this is it. The pain goes away eventually but I am concern since I am traveling out of the country on Sunday. Is there something over the counter I can take?

I am on bio-identical hormones and my testosterone level has gone from 62 to 247 in the last 8mos. My GYN has finally told me to stop the testosterone for a while. I ve been having abdominal pain and now lower/upper back pain for the past 3mos. Had ultrasound last wk and it came back showing uterus is anteverted, small hypoechoic foci likely respresents fibroids measuring 8mm. As well as a 1.5cm right ovarian cyst containing some internal debris and a 1.3cm simple left ovarian cyst. Can this be a result of the high testosterone? And is this something to be concerned about? And will these go away on their own?

Hi, i am writing on behalf of a friend. He had been diagnosed with having IBS when he was 13, without a colonoscopy, and now he is 25. He has been having abdominal pain and interchanges of diarrhea and constipation all these years but a month ago it suddenly got really worse (after having some fish, but even if it was bad, he had never experienced such excruciating pain again), as in one day he started to ache so much he couldn't get up off the floor. It was like stabbing and ripping him apart. He went to the hospital and had blood work done and an X-ray and they said it was normal but suggested a colonoscopy but he didn't go through with it. Ever since he has been having really severe abdominal pain and interchanges of diarrhea and constipation and he has been to several doctors, one prescribing him with amitriptyline and antibiotics for the intestine, and another after that giving him mebeverine hydrochloride alone. He took the antibiotics and amitriptyline for almost a month and it helped him a bit but in the evening he would none the less have the return of the severe pain in his entire abdomen, sometimes centering on the left upper side of it. Then he went to the other doctor who perscribed mebeverine hydrochloride, telling him it would instantly help, without that being the case when he tried it. He had extensive blood work done and everything was normal, no inflammation or anemia, and the doctor said he didn't need anything else and should just take the mebeverine. But he is still in pain and i was wondering if it could be something else with these symptoms. Should he have a colonoscopy or some other less painful test? He also has Gastroesophageal Reflux Disease.
