    Various stomach problems

    Hi everyone,

    ill try to describe this as best as I can.
    I’ve been having trouble digesting pretty much anything I eat. Within 20 minutes of eating, I’ll get extremely gassy to the point my whole stomach swells up and even my back muscles get really tight. It’s making me breathe very shallow.
    i also feel like I ate too much all the time. Sometimes it feels like there’s a brick in my stomach.
    No supplements I’ve taken so far are helping. If I move a little too much where my heart rate goes up, gas bubbles up into my chest and it makes my heart skip beats.
    I never have acid reflux though.
    And while currently my bowels also have a lot of gas in them, mostly they are fine.

    Any thoughts or has anyone had any relief with over the counter medication?

    I have. She can’t really diagnose me without a gastroscopy but I don’t want to get that done when COVID is this bad.
    ive had it on and off for years, so she’s not concerned. It gets worse with stress which I can recognise.
    im just looking for some relief right now

    Have you tried FDgard? (Peppermint and caraway oil) Taking it before meals has helped me with the bloating and fullness.

    If you've had it on or off for years I wouldn't worry about it.

    Try peppermint to help you rift the wind. Also, I used to bloat up quite a lot after eating, then my doctor told me I was deficient in Vit B12 and ever since I've been taking them - no bloating! Turns out that Vit B12 deficiency can cause bloating.
