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:

    • First, do you have celiac disease?  Have you recently had a celiac antibodies follow-up blood test panel to see if gluten has been actually getting into your diet by accident or through cross contamination?  If you haven't had the test, you should ask your doctor for one.  You could also also ask for a follow-up endoscopy to see if you intestines have truly healed.  This will rule out if gluten is really the problem.    If you don't have celiac, I assume you have Non-celiac gluten Intolerance because no one would stick to the gluten-free diet for six years unless you have had reductions in symptoms.  There is no test for NCGI unfortunately.  So, it is hard to say if gluten has been sneaking into your diet.  You really are going to have to try to figure out if you are getting gluten into your diet.  If gluten is not the problem, then your doctor needs to check you for other issues, like SIBO. There is a test to check for SIBO.  Has this been done?   Once a celiac, always a celiac.  There is no cure for celiac disease except to remain on a gluten free diet for life.  I am not sure about NCGI.  Not much research has been done.  Maybe others can chime in?    
    • I am so confused right now.... 6 years ago I went on gluten free diet... after being on it for the first yr I was 100%better up until 5 months ago in got the "flu" the doctors told me to cut out dairy sonic did and my diarrhea  became better but not completely gone would not have it every day tho. I went to the gi doctor and they said to cut out fructose and dairy and keep gluten out... yesterday I went to the dietitian to see what I can eat and she gave me the list for fructose... she said it should have been on a antibiotic for sibo.... eventually I will be able to add dairy back and maybe gluten.... I said how can I add gluten back when this was my first problem... she goes well through fructose goes hand in hand with it... I said with gluten I vomit and am sick for weeks.... fructose isn't that bad I vomit sometimes but I'm not sick for weeks.... I'm just confused on really what is going on and was wondering if you or someone you know had sibo from gluten and or fructose and how Is this all related?
    • I see no one has responded to your query.  Unfortunately I have yet to try making a pie crust.  It was something I never mastered before going gluten free.  Have you looked on Pinterest?  You might find something there.
    • I honestly feel like both doctors think it's all in my head even though there is proof.  Yeah there was a point when I felt crazy.  That was when I was being shuffled from dr to dr being given individual diagnoses of my problems.  None of those diagnoses ever made me get better.  Seriously I was diagnosed with heart palpitations, neurocardiogenic syncope, I was given a butt load of steroids because a dr felt like I was producing too much adrenaline, freaking had a few tell me I was depressed, and the good ol IBS.  It seemed most wanted to push pills.  It's all just ridiculous!
    • I can't believe your doctors!!! You have a daughter who is dx'd already! Yet the ped doesn't want to test your other kids unless you have a dx????!!! Are you kidding me???!!! That's absurd!!! They have a first degree relative who has been dx'd with celiac already. There is no need to wait to see what you turn out to be!! And then, and then, and then....don't even get me started on your doctor!!! Does he have brain damage? Oh this is insane & ridiculous!  I have never heard of a disease that doctors are so unwilling to consider or test for OR to diagnose as this one! Usually they are hot to trot to make a dx but say the word celiac & they shake in their boots. Grrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
