I have felt bloated for the past 3 days. I dont know what to do, I have not had any gas or anything, but I feel like a HUGE balloon. I have had to sit through work and college classes and it is so uncomfortable. It is affecting my breathing also, it has become harder to breath. I dont know what to do....... :(

Thank you

Amanda

Lots and lots of water! Cold water works better than hot, and lemon juice added helps even more.

Try not to eat anything salty or fatty, either. Broccoli, cabbage, and other high fiber veggies may make bloating worse.

Hope that helps :(

Lots of water and I find that Lipton Decaffeinated Tea helps.

thanks you guys :)

I just have another question, does anyone else get this? I mean if you put any sort of pressure on my stomach I will just begin to cry the pain is so bad. I feel like there is a huge balloon in my body and I just want to pop it. I dont know if I should go to the doctor about this?

Anyone ever feel like this?

Oh and I have not eaten any gluten so I dont think that it is an attack? I dont know what it could be from?

Thank you again.

Could be anything from gas to a stomach infection.

If the pain is the same no matter what you're eating then I think it'd be ok if you went and got checked out.

Zantac 75 or 150 helps me alot. - gluten free

Also, I take one Omeprozole (generic for prilozec) once in the morning and once at night). I have a have a large hietal hernial, in addition to celic. The symptoms are often confusing. Without the meds, I know that I would have the bloating and the pain of excess gas. It helps me alot.,

Hope this will be helpful.

I have ridiculous pain, too. It feels like someone filled up my stomach like a balloon, and then it starts cramping horribly and I can't function without serious meds. I've gone to the ER several times for it and I leave with narcotics and a shrug.

They did an upper GI, sonagram, endoscopy, and never really found anything. I think the GI doc said after the endo that my stomach lining looked irritated, and I had a tiny ulcer (from too much advil). He was looking for esophogeal damage, because he was sure I had reflux. I can't be sure what he said though, since I was still coming off the versed. I don't think I could pick that dr out of a lineup, that was the only time I saw him, otherwise it was his nurse.

That time, it was a shrug and nexium. When the nexium didn't work, the GI doc ignored me.

They still don't know what it is.

I hope they figure out what's going on with you :unsure:
