    3 years post Nissen Fundoplication

    Hello -- I am seeking help as I am completely miserable. I had a fundo done in early 2017 and actually had great success with it. Lately though, I've had extreme bloating even when I don't eat. It is so bad I cannot breathe properly and now my lungs are sore struggling to take in breaths. I had an upper GI that showed nothing to be causing this. I go through gas-x like it is candy with no relief, I've started omeprazole and I'm on week 2 with no relief. I've cut out all gluten....
  • When you gotta go

    I have had constipation for a very long time! I've tried everything over the counter, prescriptions and have not found anything that words are except for and I've gotten to where I do it once a week I take anywhere from 6 to 8 laxative pills. When I wake up and I feel like I have to go I will do an enema before I go. Hold it in as long as you can and then it will be like floodgates opening and it will make you feel so much better. It's horrible that I have to go through that every week....

    Routine and Debilitating Stomach Pain

    For the past 6 months or so, I get terrible stomach pains, but only at night, typically around 10PM. It can start before or after I eat. The pain will begin as a dull ache in my rib cage, and will slowly expand to cover my entire abdomen. The pain is an unbearable, stabbing/ pulsating pain, and the only relief is to lie down with my knees up to my chest. It is affecting my work, school, and social life. I had a Dr.s appointment two weeks ago. He is considering IBS, and recommended I cut out sugars....

    Severe bloating, constipation

    About 2 weeks ago, I had loose bowels, low grade fever. Felt fatigued for a few days. Also had a lot of gas, bloating and feeling full, whether I ate or not. Now, the last week or so, I’ve had bad constipation, severe bloating and some gas. Nothing I do will help me with a bowel movement. I took a laxative earlier today and just waiting.... At first I thought I had some kind of virus, as 2 coworkers have had some of these symptoms too. Any ideas what is going on? I’m not getting scared that I may....

    Ongoing issues

    For about seven years now, I get stomach aches and diarrhea EVERY night. It began as normal stools and eventually escalating to nausea and diarrhea, and feeling like absolute garbage. I have trouble distinguishing between heartburn and acid reflux and nausea. What makes it worse is that I spent so many days of my childhood with stomach viruses that I am absolutely TERRIFIED of throwing up. When I start to get heartburn or acid reflux or nausea, whatever the heck I’m getting every night, I freak out....

    Just my gallbladder?

    I am a 19 year old female--I am 5 ft 2 in and weight approx. 115 lbs. About 4 years ago, I was diagnosed with gastritis on top of having an inflamed gallbladder that works at about 12%. I have been taking Prevacid for those 4 years and I have yet to get my gallbladder removed, even though I am planning on it. I don't have any gallstones, but it is inflamed and there is family history of having poor gallbladders. I have always been bloated and uncomfortable after eating, but lately it has gotten....

    Vomiting After Eating Meat

    My son is 7 years old, active, healthy weight, healthy cognition, etc... When he was about 10 months old I stopped exclusively breastfeeding him and introduced him to solids per usual. We ate a non-processed plant-based diet in his first two years and slowly started introducing animal proteins into his diet after that. He doesn't have any allergies that we are aware of, but every time he eats ANY red meat or poultry, he immediately has stomach pain and he vomits within seconds (no exaggeration....
