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:

    • Lol!!!  Well what the heck. I'm not entirely sure how the message boards figure out the algorithm sometimes.  however, the Advice was totally informative and I appreciate it!   I am a bit nervous about taking iron so I was thinking I would take a safe dose maybe every other day or so for a little while  and ask my doctor To rerun the panel.  a friend of mine is a PA and she told me thE amount I can safely take.  I just hope my doc will be receptive to Re-running it because he told me the labs were within normal range Because the cutoff for ferritin was 13 and mine was 20.  I have no idea why they ran it a year-and-a-half ago because I didn't ask and I wasn't feeling crummy but during the first gluten challenge they did an iron panel and that's when it was in the 70s.  so I figure adding a bit more iron to my Already decent diet isn't going to hurt too much.   I did ask my primary care if it would be typical for somebody with a completely normal hemoglobin and red blood cell count to go anemic with an 18 hours of fasting.  it was mild anemia wasn't severe obviously. I had a procedure done while I was in the hospital and you can watch my red blood cell count and hemoglobin drop while I was fasting.  because they seem to Draw a CBC Like every 5 minutes in the hospital.   I was told after having a colonoscopy that Crohn's was ruled out.  Of course I was told a lot of things!   I admire how active you are.  I would love to be able to get up to a half marathon. I gave up exercising for 6 months last year to see if anything would help but it didn't so I just got back into it probably sometime in February. There are days when I really don't feel well and I'm not able to but there are days where I feel pretty good.
    • Don't pay any attention to that reply. By the way I am so sorry you are suffering so much. I have no answers for you at all but hopefully someone will! When is the next time you see your doctor?
    • Matt,  Your post has literally changed my attitude over my morning coffee today In a matter of minutes.  You have done a wonderful job summing up the experience of not only myself, and you as well, but my guess is probably a lot of people who come to this board.   I know from having some email conversations with researchers that even those in the gluten Community do not see eye-to-eye on all of this. So we certainly do have a long way to go.  As for the three months you're absolutely right, as I had already tried a strict diet for 2 or 3 months and still had a lot of symptoms. I think the doctor just wants to meet after 3 months to see if there's any Improvement, the test. But I'll give it a good 6 to 12 as you suggest.  There is that lingering fear that nothing will get better and I'll continue to go undiagnosed with something sinister.  it is hard not to think that way in my case. however, again, your post is giving me some hope. And even if that hope is not realistic at the very least it's a distraction for a little while which I need.  And hey, it may just be the answer!  I am often on the fence about whether or not I should be bitching about my doctors.  in reality, two of the things in life I would never want to be would be a doctor or a landlord.  people really do look to doctors as if they are God.  a friend of mine is a physician and told me that it's quite frustrating for doctors when they can't figure out what's wrong with the patient and they get burnt out.  so I have a lot of respect for the Physicians who keep trying to find what's wrong and do so while being polite and courteous to the patient even though they may inside be feeling frustrated. I have absolutely no respect for the ones who  fail to notice that there are recalls out on their models of the God complex.
    • I'm currently searching for a brand of rice that is safe for even the most sensitive. I saw posts on here from around 2009 (I believe) and was just curious what everyone ate without issues lately?
