Need Relief From Bloating And Gas Please
0

27 posts in this topic

all in all I seem to be a little better, though I was better the first month, now I seem to be having lots of bloating, that gets worse as the day goes on, my belly grumbles and I also have more gas than ever. gas x helps a little but not enough.

any ideas to help this? do you get this too?

I wonder if the citrucel is making it worse, though I've been taking it for about 7 months

thanks. Betty

I used to take Revitalx powder supplement for my bloating and gas. Worked like a charm. I still use it once in a while. I buy it at Whole Foods.

yup.....I am also on generic prilosec am and pm for gastritis and LARGE hiatal hernia.

I only use Zantac when I really need it.

Hope that will help you. I hate the bloating, I never thought I would get excited about pooting. :blink:

Is your Gas X gluten free? Here's the info I have on Gas X from April 2005:

GasX (Novartis) (800.452.0511) (v?=07/02)

Softgels (gluten-free, contains corn and maltodextrin)

Chewable Tablets (NOT gluten-free)

It looks like the chewables are NOT gluten free. I wonder if that's part of the problem.

I've been using Phazyme on the advice of my GI. The softgels are gluten-free. The fast dissolve tablets are not.

Have you changed your diet since your gastritis diagnosis? Gastritis can often be greatly helped by elminating offending foods. What gas-x were you taking? Do you ever have periods of relief? An option would be to keep a food/symptom journal and do a rotation diet to ck for a specific food or ingredient that might be causing your symptoms.

Sorry you are not feeling well! It could just be your body is still healing. I know that I have had some weeks like that where I couldn't pinpoint what the issue was and then the next week was better. For what it is worth, my old gastro told me that Gas X was worthless for intestinal gas....so maybe that is why you aren't getting total relief? Are you using soy to supplement for the dairy? I found that I can't do soy now either and get the same symptoms (gas/bloating) that I did with the lactose/dairy.

Hope you feel better soon.

Dragging up a really old post. Anyone else frustrated with the new system and lack of search options?

Anyway, just wondering if anyone has info more recent about whether any of these are still gluten-free? Thanks!

BTW I take phazyme softgels, but don't always feel like they work enough. Maybe I should take 2?

do you have other habits which could be getting a lot of air into your system? any carbonated beverages? sipping a lot of hot beverages? a lot of throat clearing? you can take in a lot of air with your drinks and food (even if it's just water) depending on how you drink, and if you're not the body type that burps it out, it'll come out the other way. I have issues with that occasionally (and I don't drink carbonated beverages except once in a blue moon, and both the burping and gas are distinctly increased with that one!), and have to be careful with swallowing too much air.

(yeah, I know it's a long shot, and almost certainly not it, but I thought I'd mention it, just in case. :) )

I drink soda occasionally. Mostly i drink a lot of water, not much else. I do notice that I have more air when I drink soda. I burp a lot, but also get it out the other end <_<

What brand of rice milk are you using ?

currently, just almond milk. And not much of it. Although I haven't completely gone off dairy yet...working my way to that :rolleyes:

I used to take Revitalx powder supplement for my bloating and gas. Worked like a charm. I still use it once in a while. I buy it at Whole Foods.

I have been feeling less well this second month gluten-free. Same problem. I'm becoming almost parranoid about CC and suspect products and I'm just off to Wholefoods to get gluten-free shampoo and toothpaste in case it's they have been bothering me. I also have recently realised that the soy in Burts Bees lipsalve now makes my lips swell and sting so I wonder if I am becomming more sensitive to soy as I did test posative in a skin allergy testing. I should really get Enterolab testing but all this info is both wonderful and overwhelming.

thanks anyway for the great tips. Hope you feel better. :)

I took a Zantac 150 yesterday evening but it didn't get rid of the bloated feeling entirely. I woke this am slightly better but afraid to eat breakfast until 10.30 despite being really hungry and now feel really bloated again. I am trying a soy free day (already gluten-free 2months, lacotose free 1 month, cassein free 3 weeks). Do probiotics help or hinder the problem?

sorry not paying attention! Looks like I need to take my probiotics and B12 again. :)

i've only been on the probiotics a couple weeks, and haven't really noticed a difference either way.

i might try what Tiffany said, and cut out my supplements when i go on the elimination diet, and add them back in to see if i have any allergic/sensitivity reactions to them. i'm really starting to think that this diet is the only way for me to figure out what my body can handle. i've wasted my time and money on tests that still haven't helped me feel better! Good job on cutting out the gluten, lactose and casein!

    • So here's my adderall report.... I take it in the am, after my other melds and coffee. It's the XR version so it lasts all day for me, but the most helpful part is the first 4 hours. It takes a little while to kick in, and then I notice a calming effect. I'm usually very anxious so this is nice. I notice I'm more positive, and feel actually pretty happy, although I've got some major things pressing down on me I feel like I can think about them straight and get them taken care of, instead of panicking. I'm not starving all the time like I usually am. I felt hungry since I started taking my thyroid med and am worried I started gaining a bit of weight due to eating more. Now I don't feel like I need to eat between meals. I'm back to making every bite count towards nutrition. I've been better at taking care of more adult type duties. I'm happy to say that it's been a very good experience so far and I don't feel like I'm taking so much that I get a high from it. A decade or more ago I took double the dose I'm at now and I can tell you I was feeling that super happy high when it first kicked in, and although it felt great, it scared me as that is so on the path to some major addiction issues, you know? I can tell you that the current dose makes me feel like I did in my 20's, and I was pretty kick a$$ then, lol!
    • Thanks, I'll look into these. This is what I'd seen re: lanolin in d3.  http://www.livestrong.com/article/414363-difference-between-vitamin-d-from-fish-oil-lanolin/
    • Found this article about a 11 year old with celiac who was forced to eat outside after being told he could not bring and eat his own "Safe" food into Shields Tavern. Biggest point was the social impact it had on the kid and the way it was handled. I think this will bring up a new perspective and in the end perhaps open more restaurants to understanding that some of us have to bring own food to a gathering for our own safety and that ousting us for it is actual discrimination with legal implications. I personally bring my own food when I eat out, I tip big for it if they are understanding and normally order a 1 ingredient side to simplify it with the least chance of contamination. This is something many of us do to meet a compromise and interact in a social environment, and feel normal. While it really depends on person to person and how sensitive/comfortable you are eating out, heading out to accompany and eat with family, friends, and coworkers should be a option, even if we have to bring our own food as a compromise. http://wydaily.com/2017/07/20/family-of-disabled-11-year-old-sues-colonial-williamsburg-for-discrimination-nws/ On a side note remember not every chain and store are the same, always talk to a manager, or call ahead before bringing in your own food, or eating out with special requirements, dietary restrictions, or extreme food allergies/intolerance.
    • Lanolin to my knowledge is used in skin based applications only, if your needing D3 the best way is to get a sublingual in a dropper you can use there are many available. I personally use Liquid Health and just add it to a drink once or twice a week. https://www.luckyvitamin.com/p-95099-liquid-health-vitamin-d3-drops-1000-iu-2-03-oz BTW while your looking Liquid Health also makes a Stress & Energy Supplement, and a Neurological one I swear by. They have many other liquid based formulas if you wish to avoid pills (I already take a bunch anyway for other health issues)
    • Which D3 supplements aren't made from lanolin?   I had skin inflammation in the past from topical lanolin. I'm not sure if processed ingested lanolin in D3 should concern me, but thought I'd consider a  non lanolin version.
