Stomach Bloating?
0

4 posts in this topic

Is there any relief for upper stomach bloating? I have GI not celiac disease (as far as I know) and ate some gluten-free potato chips and my upper stomach blew up like a balloon. :( I'll be talking to a doctor soon about other intolerances. But in the mean time, are there any suggestions to relieve the bloating? I took some Gaviscon which helps with the indigestion but the bloating stays andit makes it more difficult to breathe with the fullness. I took a Zantac 150 earlier but it didn't help at all.

Thanks for your help!

Was there rice flour in the potato chips? Rice always makes me bloat. I avoid all grains now, my tummy is so much happier!

Also, if they were fried in industrial seed oils, like sunflower and canola, those all cause inflammation in the GI tract (because of the high omega 6 content and of course canola is almost always GMO.)

Eating as close to a whole foods diet as you can is the best thing you can do.

This book, if you haven't read it, is really really awesome and the diet is GREAT for healing leaky gut:

Hope you feel better! :)

Thank you for your reply! No, the potato chips were baked Lays so no rice. Dried potatoes, corn oil, corn starch, salt, soy lecithen, sugar and corn sugar. I'm having a really tough time eating healthy. I have always been a picky eater and ate a lot of junk food and processed foods growing up. I don't have an acquired taste for most veggies. Thank you for the book reference! I can't believe the Kindle version is 13.00, geez! lol I'll still check it out though. :)

Congrats on your signature milestones! Do you still suffer from Fibromyalgia?

Ahhh, sneaky corn! A lot of folks around here have corn sensitivities too, myself included. That's totally one that worth doing an elimination diet to see if you're sensitive to.

You know, I didn't used to like too many veggies either. My mom always complained about it! lol. But once I changed my diet, my palate changed some too. Now I even crave kale and cauliflower sometimes, it's weird. All of those processed foods are just addictive I think.

But even minus the processed foods, you can still eat really yummy things. Right now I'm making some chicken drumettes with a honey, mustard, and goat butter glaze.... They're killer!

And thank you! My fibromyalgia is way, way better than it used to be. It doesn't bother me unless I eat something weird.

    • Below is copied & pasted from this thread:   My celiac doctor is Dr. Syed Jafri, in Webster, TX (just south of Houston -- basically the Clear Lake City area), saved my LIFE.  I would recommend him to the whole, entire world.  I was desperately ill, and am still struggling, and he's a wonderful, sweet man who listens and is very proactive in helping you solve whatever problems you're having.  I wish all doctors were like him.  I have to fight and struggle with too many doctors to just listen to me and what I live with, day in and day out.  He's not like that.  Good luck to you.     There are recommendations on this thread too:  
    • I never worried about cross contamination because i was originally told i was just intolerant. after going gluten free i felt so much better up until this last march. dairy and fructose have been giving me problems but both lactose and fructose test came back negative.  this is what my gi doctor emailed me today 
    • Any place you know of to find more info? Seems like I am still in so much pain/bloat, I am not even sure if I would pick the right 5 foods!
    • Don't freak out worrying about other maladies yet. You would be absolutely amazed at the things that can/will resolve on the gluten free diet. Some take longer than others -- neurological seem to take the longest for most people but really, I guarantee, there will be things you had no idea or expectation of resolving will. There were tons for me and then there were things I sort of "woke up one day" & said, "hey, that's gone and that & that & that". Other, larger things had taken my attention so I hadn't paid attention to the smaller things until...... On the other hand, not everything is related to celiac but I bet you wouldn't find a handful of celiacs who didn't say something very similar to what I said above. Yes, thyroid problems are common with celiac but I'll also tell you there are/have been people on here who were hypothyroid before dx but after being gluten-free for a while they actually went back to normal thyroid numbers. My husband is one (yes, we both are celiac - it happens). He was on synthroid for 20 years or more. Guess what? He's not on it anymore. We've had his thyroid panel done several times since about a year gluten-free & he is no longer hypothyroid. 
    • Yes please, that'd be awesome Having a fun time trying to reply on my phone due to broken screen but will be back on tomorrow after results of doctor appointment to get to the bottom of why they've given me seemingly wrong advice re: next steps. Yup I'll admit to pity, anger, frustration and outright fear, been through the mill of emotions in this first week that's for sure. One thing before I go for that; back when I was self-diagnosing I wanted a full thyroid panel (T3, T4 etc.) and also ESR & CRP checks for vasculitis and similar maladies. Now it seems from my reading they can often follow celiac so my worry level of those has gone up a notch, more blood tests ahoy it seems? Main reason for worrying about those is the nearly constant tight / tender head I have at the moment. Top and sides of scalp. Could be the stress tensing the shoulders and occipital muscles at back of head but after the celiac diagnosis being missed I'm fearful of anything else being missed. Did anyone else have this tight head feeling at the start? Feels like the skin is being pulled inwards, sometimes goes down for a few minutes here and there and gets worse when sitting I think. I see the term "brain fog" a lot but luckily don't seem to have too much of that at present, this is more a physical sensation.
