is there anyone else out there who has their stomach blow up like they are 9 months pregnant after they eat with painful distention and burning? This used to happen intermittently but now it happens on a regular basis. It is so uncomfortable. I have tried pepcid, antacids, and other OTC products without results.

I think you might want to try a Doctor. Seriously.

While I agree with Phule, this would happen to me when I would overeat to a ridiculous degree when I used to binge. I used to eat until I couldn't walk. Even if that's the case, it can't hurt to go to the doctor.

You could be getting an intolerance to gluten. You really do need to have it checked out. There are a number of bowel disorders that should probably be looked at.

It could be gluten, yeast or both. Get checked out ASAP!

Sounds like you are either gluten or lactose intolerant. Definitly visit your doctor and have it checked out

This could also mean problems with your gallbladder. Go to the doctor.

not to scare you but this is the symptom my friend's dad had when he was diagnosed with esophageal cancer.

My body bloats up sometimes too, usually during ovulation. What has really helped me is to drink water with fresh lemon squeezed in it every day and more on days that I retain water.

Maybe try something for gas instead of heartburn. GasX works well for me when I have those symptoms.

I have discovered that I have the same reaction anytime I eat something that contains any type of artifical sweetener, including Stevia. Then it takes a week or more for my body to recover.

Definately go to the doctor. My mother had those symptoms and found out she had a perforated bowel that required immediate surgery and could have been fatal if left un-corrected. It is most likely something much less scary... but don't gamble with your health... go!

i would deffinitely cut out anything with wheat and dairy. Switch to multi-grain bread and lactose-free dairy products or a dairy alternative if you can stand it. Your doctor will most likely ask you to cut out certain foods to see if your condition improves before doing tests. I find that if i can't escape the dairy or wheat and get my stomach in the same situation as yours, gas-x pills are a huge help. Also, try drinking ginger tea after your meals. Ginger helps with digestion. I'm an IBS sufferer, and have to deal with the same issues! such a pain in the butt!

Do you have any Sugar Alcohols, like maltitol? It can cause a similar feeling. But the gluten ideas are likely as well. I know a person how developed/discovered a gluten allergy on the BFC since several of the products she used suddenly had xanthem gum in them.
