So Much Gas..

Recommended Posts

I have had so much gas the last couple of days it isn't even funny. My stomach hurts. A bit more than usual. I feel my stomach hates food right now but I need to eat because I get a bit naseaus when I get hungry.

I feel so blue right now. Things feel hopeless. It's like I am just getting worse.

I eat gluten free ham, rice, bananas, potatoes, water melon, Calcium pills.

I am on Protonix and I have taken some soft gel X-gas. Not sure if my stomach liked the X-gas... Had diarrea today. I am being super carefull with gluten, soy and dairy. Washing my hands, watching out for cross contamination.

I did realize 3 days ago that the vitamins I have been eating has soy in them, so I stopped with them.

Sometimes I feel sure this will never end.

Does anyone have problems with gas/bloating like this? Is it just part of the process to get well...

I feel your pain..I am wondering the same thing and what's up with this bloating, it has been 2 weeks since I have any gluten at all..and keep getting bloated off and on...Hmmm maybe the mozzeralla cheese and the rice crackers weren't such a good idea..I noticed I have been ravenous lately, well since I started this.

I have been super hungry from time to time too. I even woke up at night having to eat, twice (during the night)! Dreamt of food.

Now that is better..but if something goes away something else always goes in and takes its place. If I don't have naseau I have heartbrun and it I don't have those two I have bloating. I look 4 months pregnant almost (it feels like anyways ;) ).

Crazy and very discouraging.

I am jelaous of people who respond better to this.

OH YES!! Have either of you taken dairy into consideration? I know i took the advice of the others on here myself regarding dairy...and wouldn't you know, the gas got about 80% better!! I still have my days, but now i'm wondering if i have soy issues as well. But i would definitely take dairy out of your diet for at least one week and see what happens ;) .

I got possitive results on casein too so I stopped dairy in June I think it was. :P

Oh, i just now saw that you are already trying to avoid the dairy...hhmmm...i wonder what your eating that's causing it. I know i had onions in homemade stuffing and also in soup i made and now today my abdominal area is quite tender and i have lots of painful gas. I guess we should all be sticking with plain soft boiled meats, veggies, and fruits until we are completely healed...it's so hard though sometimes <_<

But yes, i do feel this is all part of the healing process, i've been on the diet for about 5 months now. I will say that i notice on the days i only eat soft chicken with soft boiled veggies and much on gluten-free pretzels throughout the day i feel pretty darn good ;)

Try Prilosec OTC, on the in the morning and one in the eve. It may take about a week, but it is gluten-free and might help the bloating. I too have major bloating issues, and also use gax-X (green box). I hope this will help.

I have gas like that... the first stirrings make the hairs on the back of my neck stand up!! I never know how bad it's going to get. I did get gasx as well the extra strength kind. My son's dog at two of them (chocolate lab) he slept like a baby...first time he ever settled down here that well. I wish it worked like that for me. There is a great yoga position that helps relieve some gas, you lay flat on your back and bring one leg up and hold it against your chest then do the other leg. It works for me sometimes. Good luck.

I don't have the crawling thing but I sure feel I have a BIG stomach. :blink:

I got a stronger Xgas pill today. Seemed it helped a bit better. Didn't eat much carbs either. Maybe that helped too..

I am on Protonix (double dose already, the Prilosec was like sugar pills to me.). Not sure if that one makes any difference with the bloating. Helps taking away the tip of the iceberg of the heart burn.

Heart Burn has always been my worst symptom. 24/7. No matter what I take. No matter what I do. That has gotten a bit better since I stopped with Gluten.

I'll have to try that Yoga "move".

Yes, the yoga stretching helps me alot. Heartburn was always my major symptom too before the watery "d" came on really strong one year ago, along with bouts of major gas (like i was playing an instrument in the morning or something :P ). The heartburn was everyday for the past 6 years until i stopped the gluten 5 months back. It sounds like you caught yours early enough before things got even worse...because the crawling thing (intestinal gas) started after the watery "d" came on.

I got D about 4½ years ago too. To tell you the truth I think I actually had D before Heart Burn.

I used to go many times a day. It actually got better, but not good, and the heart burn just got nastier and nastier. I woke up every morning with sore throat, got soars in my throat. I used to swat the herat burn was so bad. I have tried every singel anti acid pill out there. Even taken two different kinds at the same time. Protonix was the only one that made it some what bearable. Crazy. No doctors had any good ideas to give me. They used to used say "don't smoke, don't drink coffee..."and all that. And I had never even started with any of that.

Now my heart brun isn't as sever. Much better in fact. I still have it though. A little every day. But not 24/7.

Have you tried taking digestive enzymes? Gas can be caused by undigested food sitting somewhere in the intestinal tract. It just sits there and basically ferments, causing gas. This type of gas usually has a bad smell to it as well. I take digestive enzymes and they really help me. Actually since going gluten free and taking the enzymes I rarely have gas at all anymore. Before going gluten free it used to be so bad that I would call in sick at work!!

Hope you find something that works for you.

For some reason bananas give me horrible gas, apples, too! I usually stick with oranges or berries to be safe. Have you tried eliminating the banana?

Hope you find what it is soon! I had to take a round of antibiotics for an ear infection a few weeks back and it messed my whole system up!! I am taking probiotics to try to correct it all.

I have stayed away from carbs the last two days. Seems cutting out the rice (white) helped some.

I tried some enzyme pills but they made me really naseau.

You might want to talk to a knowledgeable person in a health store or a Naturopathic doctor about which enzyme to take. There are tons of them out there. Some of them have hydrochloric acid in them which could make you nauseaus. I need a pretty strong one myself because I don't have a gall bladder (which was removed in error GGGRRRRRR :angry: ) The one I take has ox bile in it as well to compensate for my own bile problems. You might be able to find one which is more suited to your exact needs.
