Hi all, lets get right into it. So I have been having some issues with bloating for quite a while now. I think this started in march and lasted around 2 weeks until it slowly got better again. I have gone to the doctors about it and was just told to take antacids, they did not do any additional tests. The bloating has caused trousers and underwear to be more uncomfortable than normally, and I have tried a few different kinds/brands/sizes to see if anything would be comfier at all but this has not really helped. I have kept track of my weight as well and have not gained close to any weight at all for quite a long time, and appear to be of a fairly healthy weight as far as I am aware (5’10, 72kg).
This bloating issue seems to return every 1/2 months and last for a couple of weeks, and now I have had similar issues for the last 2.5 weeks. It feels like the stomach is bloated for most of the day and comes with some stomach cramps and a soar belly button. Sometimes this comes with feeling sick as well, especially on morning walks. I have had some issues with gas as well (tons of burping) but this has died down a bit in the last few days. I have taken quite a few antacids now but it does not seem like this is helping much. I have also started taking peppermint oil capsules after doing some research online for about a week now but does not feel like this is changing much.
I am thinking if going back to the doctors and make it clear that “just taking antacids” has not helped and hope that this can be looked into further.. Does this sound familiar to others at all? Any clue what it could be or any possible remedies that could help?
Any advice or tips are greatly appreciated 😃
