Bloated stomach: hello ~ these symptoms may not be indicative of anything other than that you should eat more slowly, chew longer and swallow less air. BUT, it could be something more ominous. Gastric outlet obstruction could be due to chronic dyspepsia and gastric ulcer disease but it could be due to cancer of the fundus stomach so please see Dr and have Barium meal or endoscopy.thanks
