Bloated Stomach

Posted , 5 users are following.

For the past couple of weeks Ive been having a very bloated stomach. It is very uncomfortable. The thing is that it is mainly bloated in the upper part of stomach and tighter than the other part of the abdomen. I have a hiatal hernia and gerd so i dont know of it could be from those issues or the perimenopause. If i past gas or press on it it does seem to go down but comes right back afterward. Anyone else dealing with bloatimg and especially on the upper part of stomach?

    I have had terrible stomach troubles.  Burping.  Bloated stomach.  I thought it might be related to anxiety.  I eat yogurt.  Better quality types.  It does help.  Take Gasx

    I think it’s worth getting it checked.  I have Crohn’s disease and peri is wreaking havoc with it.  Could be peri or not - it’s worth a doctor visit. 🌸

      Hi Liz I have my next appt to gastro dr. In June though i may have to go sooner. I was diagnoised with gastritis, and hiatal hernia. I ve also noticed when i started using the progesterone cream the bloating worsen. How was your crohn diagnoised?

      Hi Mary - I had a lot of Crohn's symptoms, but I saw a few different specialists who disagreed about the diagnosis.  I saw a rheumatologist who was sure it was lupus, for example.  The GI specialist did lots of tests, but a colonoscopy confirmed it.  I am sorry about the hernia and gastritis and hope you are feeling better soon.

      Hi Alibobs123, Ive already had the camera down last year and said i have gastritis and a hiatal hernia ( small sliding one ) . So it could be from.that, its just that its been under control lately. It hasnt really been bothering me. This is going on week 3 with bloating. I did wake up to to spotting this morning, so it could be that im trying to get a period. I didnt have one last month. So i will monitor it. I have an appt scheduled for GI next month. Last appt was in Dec. and i had no issues of bloating but constipation.
