Does anyone else get bloating relief from Phenergan? My bloating is considerably better since going gluten free, but I am still having occasional issues at almost 5 months gluten-free. Sometimes I can pinpoint that it might be CC, other times I can't figure it out. Does not seem to be dairy or soy. Anyway, Phenergan almost always helps majorly. I have lost as much of 8 pounds in a week of bloat by taking Phenergan a few times a week. The doctor says that it makes no sense that it would work for bloating, because it slows down the empyting of the stomach. I know it does, though, because I can actually lose weight by taking it, and my clothes can fit again. I always say it feels like someone took my stomach out and washed it and loved it and put it back. :) Just curious if anyone else has this same results from Phenergan, or can maybe tell me why it works.

Welcome Winter!

I've never taken Phenergan and cannot tell you why it works.

What I can tell you is the healing digestive system often reacts to things other than cross contamination of gluten and it can often seem gluten is everywhere -- I know that I blamed gluten for more than it's fair share of bloating during my first year gluten-free. Foods can simply be hard to digest. Often these are "one-off" reactions -- keeping a food/symptom log can help (including a level of bloat -- I described using correlation with 4-9 months pregnant - doesn't matter your descriptive terms -- scale of 1 to 10 also works great - just that you can understand your descriptions. Often this log will lead to other foods that may be causing you problems.

I hope someone else can answer your specific question :)

Undiagnosed Celiac Disease ~ 43 years

3/26/09 gluten-free - dignosed celiac - blood 3/3/09, biopsy 3/26/09, double DQ2 / single DQ8 positive

10/25/13 - MCAD

Health history since celiac diagnosis became too long -- moved to the "about me" section of my profile

My children and I all have multiple copies of the genes for Celiac Disease, along with large variety of symptoms/resolution gluten-free

Current tally from me, three kids and two grands: 4 diagnosed with Celiac Disease, 2 NCGS

Get PROPERLY tested BEFORE REMOVING GLUTEN.

ALWAYS independently research health related information found on internet forums/blogs.

"LTES" a Gem :)
