IBS Bloating for 2+ Weeks HELP Medicine?

Posted , 5 users are following.

Hi!

I've been bloated for over two weeks now. I ate something I shouldn't have - I believe dairy is not a no-no for me (though is never was before) as well as artifical sugars (I had swedish berries =[ ) .... So i was bloated for a week, had my period so got double the bloating, my periods over now and usually my bloat is gone - but my stomach feels off and bloated still from im guessing dairy products. 

It's really fustrating always feeling and have an extra large stomach - I go to the gym still every day - It's still hard to resist dairy and bread so I don't think i'm doing myself and favors not cutting these foods out 

Has any medication helped anyone? I've taken Acid Pills for the first time a couple days ago, it didn't seem to really do anything. 

Any help would be much appreciated!

Im 23 - have had IBS/ stomach issues since i can remember - but i've never had an IBS bloat attack this long (the only other time was in 2016 for a week due to spicy food)

    Hi

    Everyone is different - best things to avoid lactose breads and take a probiotic as that definately helps with bloating.

    Unfortunately too stress plays a factor innblosting I'm sure.

    Keep as calm as you can I know it's hard

    Cheers Rhonda

    Cut out dairy and bread.  Try lactose and gluten free products instead.

      Hi, Sourdough bread is how bread was made for hundreds of years up until the 1960, and basically sourdough is fermented bread, it uses natural yeast and probiotic bacteria, and during the process of fermenting the wheat or which ever grain is used is mostly digested by the bacteria plus most of the lactose is got rid of and phytic acid in wheat which is an anti nutrient is greatly reduce, so over all the end product is very easy for people to digest and much more nutritious.

    Try Colpermin mint capsules and Windeze or Deflatine .. you can get them over the counter.
