Not really.: If you are otherwise healthy and not throwing up, able to tolerate food well, this problem I hope is temporary and will resolve if you give your stomach some rest from Cheesy, Greasy and spicy food. If it chronic then pay attention what kind of food makes you feel Bloated. Taking Deep braeth should not make one feel bloated. Is it a muscle soreness from Exercising too much or pulling the Muscle?
