Anyone has bloating feeling after drinking a small glass of water. I had dinner at 8:05 and at 10:15pm I had a small glass of water and around 11or so pm suddenly I had feeling of bloating until I burp then I feel a little bit better. It is not the first time, from time to time I experience this. It worries me.

    Hello Thi, I wonder if the fact that there is a delay of nearly an hour before the bloating might make the water aspect a coincidence? There will likely be normal gas build-up, and maybe air swallowed with the water, in your stomach that may be present at the point when the bloating occurs, and your stomach will have gotten smaller in size by then, as the last meal and water should be out, or mostly out of it, so you might feel the presence of gas more. Does it ever happen around that time if you haven't had a drink earlier?

    Quite a few Irritable Bowel sufferers have puzzlesome bloating from drinking water, but theirs is usually quicker or immediate than when yours occurs.

    If I was to eat at 8.05, by 11 I'd be ravenous! Maybe hunger is also playing a part in this feeling?

      Thanks Paul. I havent thought about hungry for I do not feel hungry. I waited long to drink for I am worrying that if I drink I may get burp and acid will come up. It takes an half an hour to feel bloated. Weird and I will try to record my feeling and tell the specialist. I will meet him next week for reference to PH study. Still I am not sure if I should do PH study or it will make it worse? Anyone done PH study, please help. I did reseach and I am horrified with the face and tube.cry

      I've no experience with that, Thi. I think Papote mentioned it though.

      The thing about burping and meals is this: just after you've eaten and your stomach has the meal and whatever you've had to drink in it, you should be able to gently burp a few times without any acid trouble. I do this within about ten minutes after eating with no problem. But after that I wait until after the next meal, even if I have to fight not to burp. It takes some time, you see, for the acid and other digestive fluids to arrive in the stomach after eating, so there shouldn't be risk or much risk of acid or pepsin coming up when burping out swallowed air just after a meal.

      I have the feeling of bloating this morning between breakfast and lunch. It is not as strong as last night. I drank milk chocolate after having a piece of toast. Dont know why? May be because cold water causes it. It never happens before Paul. Cofusing and worrying will lead nowhere but I cant help it when it happens. I will require for another endoscopy with my specialist. Other symptoms seems alright like feeling a lump in my throat, heartburn reduce. But this symptoms seem appear more often now. You take care Paul and thanks for your care.confused

      You're welcome. Do beware of chocolate, though. Like coffee and caffeine it can be troublesome for stomach and reflux troubles. Such a pity we have to watch out for things we like but which can cause problems or make them worse. And water that isn't cold is easier on stomachs as well. Bye.

      I had the 24 hour PH STUDY with mammography  right  before Christmas   I had a hard time with the study but made it through. The worst part is the mammography part. Bigger tube.  They numb your nose when they put it in. It's just a weird feeling.  The 24 hour tube is much smaller and not too bad. Had some gagging with it   I don't think it made anything worse but it did rule out some thing.  Good to know my acid levels and it identified I did have reflux with and with out acid that caused pains   If you can have it done I would.

    Hi Paul / thi,

    I have been having this trouble with bloating after 

    1. drinking tea with milk first thing in the morning.

    2. drinking small amounts of water in the mornings on empty stomach

    I think I found the reason for the first case: when I don't drink tea with milk, there is no issue. I suspected that it has to do with milk. So, instead of milk, one day I ate a tiny piece of chocolate; I experienced bloating. When I stopped taking anything to do with milk on empty stomach, the issue was not seen again. However, I am able to take any number of cups of coffee / tea after breakfast, with absolutely no bloating. My doctor suggested that it could be due to acidic pH in the empty stomach and milk gets curdled when reacting with acids.

    However for the second case of bloating, after drinking tiny amounts of water on empty stomach, I have not found useful remedies. Any suggestions?
