What In The World Now...help

Recommended Posts

Mmkay, this is a little weird. The "skinny kid with pot-belly" was pre-gluten-free thing, right? I'm starting to get that way now!!! I feel like I'm going to burst! I never dealt with this before. Only related to it was I lost a lot of weigh and had the sereve pain, yeah, you guys know.

I'm guessing I'm getting glutened and I'm always bloated.

Gas-X doesn't really help with bloating. I need suggestions, bad!!! I'm tired of my stomach hurting. <_< Thanks :)

Check the label on Gas-X. I vaguely recall that it has gluten. Ironically many of the OTC meds for bloating have dairy or gluten ingredients, which just exacerbate our symptoms. I drink strong peppermint tea for cramping pain and yoga positions for bloating after gluten or dairy contamination.

I just want to second the activated charcoal. My doc just put me on that one tablet three times per day to kill some of the bloat in my lower abdomen...and it seems to be helping.

You need to call the company for any OTC product but especially for tummy ones. Sometimes I wonder if they know about the delayed reactions for gluten and put it in on purpose so we keep needing their meds. I used to take Immodium liquid as a preventitive every day. Now I wonder how much extra damage the gluten in that did.

To help with the pain you could try a gentle massage start on the left side near the pubic bone and using your index and middle finger massage in gentle but firm circles, move slowly up the side of your abdomen and then under the area right under your ribs, then go down the other side until you end up where you started. Breathe slowly and deeply while you do this. A hot water bottle on your tummy for a few minutes before you start the massage can be nice.

If you know yoga I found doing the inverted stance called a shoulder stand and then bringing my knees to my chest helped too. DON'T TRY THIS IF you don't already know yoga or you have back problems. And don't do it with other folks in the room, the whole object is to expell the gas :D

I hope you get some relief soon.

Is it possible you could be intolerant to something else other than the gluten? I still can't digest fat very well, so if I eat too much, I bloat up like a severely pregnant woman.
