    Hi Brandon

    ive been diagnosed with a host of illnesses, one symptom of these is extremely bloating. It gets so bad I ring it very difficult to draw breath, and have to force myself to burp, but even that doesn’t help all the time. It usually takes one particular burp to happen and I’ll then feel like it’s easier to breathe.

    Whats happening is your stomach is being blown up, which in turn pushes against you diaphragm and forces it up, which in turn pushes against the space where your lungs and heart operate, leaving less room for them to function, hence why it becomes harder to breath.

    The fact that you bloat after eating isn’t a good sign really, it shouldn’t happen to the extent that you struggle to breathe, do you know why you are bloating after eating?

    Hi Brandon,

    Yes. This has been going on for 3 years with me. I've had all the scans and poked and prodded my many doctors "specialists" and they came to the conclusion that I am allergic to fermenting sugars. Have cut them out and I still have the problem. I really wish you luck.
