IBS?: One cause of bloating is the Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS). This is a functional disorder in which delayed passage of intestinal gas can occur causing the sensation of bloating. In IBS patients can have pain due to a heightened pain sensitivity to gaseous distention of the bowel. Another cause of bloating and pain is constipation.

Stop the Bupropion: What you are experiencing sounds like an adverse medication side effect. Angioedema (throat swelling/laryngeal edema) is not a common side effect of burpropion, seen in less than 1% of individuals who take it, and you may be one of them. Stop the medication now (can be lethal) and report side effects to your doctor asap. If you added something new to your diet, that could explain it too.

Abdominal pain: Hi Lisa913 I am assuming there are no urinary symptoms, and assuming the "stomach" pain refers to the lower abdominal pelvic pain. This could be 2 things.Constipation. Please use stool softener or bulking agent (Metamucil) or pelvic congestion mid cycle (Advil (ibuprofen) helps) Chronic abdominal pain = RT doctor visit thanks

Why do I get stomach pain and a bloated feeling after I eat or drink anything? Healthy 42 yr old female

Bloating: Bloating can be caused by indigestion, reflux symptoms (gerd), intolerance to certain foods, or can represent constipation. Pain in the right upper quadrant can represent gallstones, but generalized pain is unlikely to represent that. Antacids such as tums, (calcium carbonate) or medicine to decrease stomach acid such as Prilosec (over the counter), may be helpful. If you had worsening or new symptoms, vomiting, fever, then it would be reasonable to consult your physician.

Feeling gasy and bloated everyday in the stomach, is there anyway to get rid of it? As many time I would also have a stomach pain with it too?

Feeling gasy and bloated everyday in the stomach, is there anyway to get rid of it? As many time I would also have a stomach pain with it too?

Reason 4 gassiness?: Feeling full of "gas" may reflect malabsorption of food (like gluten, lactose), intake of poorly digested food, or choosing foods known to promote gas (beans, fizzy drinks). Sometimes its more complicated--a stomach emptying too slowly, bacterial overgrowth syndrome, delayed intestinal function, partial obstruction from any cause, infection, rectum problems, and pelvic pathology outside the gut.

Get evaluated: Your infrequent yet heavy periods, fatigue, and bloating are concerning. Get evaluated by a gynecologist. Poly cystic ovary, ovarian cyst/tumor and several other possible diagnoses need to be considered, to get you better.

Can Prevacid (lansoprazole) Cause stomach Cramps, Stomach pain, and Bloated feeling?

Prevacid (lansoprazole): Prevacid (lansoprazole) is usually a well-tolerated medicine. However, any medicine can cause side effects in some people. If you suspect the side effects are due to Prevacid (lansoprazole), your options are either to switch medicines or to stop it temporarily, to see if the side effects go away, then restart it in a few weeks and observe if the symptoms recur. Good luck.

Been having lower back pain and lower stomach pain and feeling full in my stomach (bloated sort off). What could be the problem? .

Possibly 2 problems: These may be independent problems. See your internist or GI doctor first to solve that, then see a pain management doctor who will be able to help you (as I am). Problems may be related, but they can figure that out.

Vomiting 2 times in a week now feeling bloated and with some stomach pain. I work nights so I drink loads of coffee, I feel worst when I'm working.

Less coffee then: And sodas, if take pain pills like asprin or aleve/advil or drink too much alcohol or stressed out can cause ulcer, and if smoke all goes bad so never do this, relax get sleep, less coffee, moderate, try some tums/Mylanta and Prilosec or similar for 2 weeks if not better see gastroenterologist

Nondiagnostic: Your symptoms are nondiagnostic and more information is needed. Although this could be an irritable bowel syndrome, other causes such as gastritis, gluten or lactose intolerance are possibilities. If your symptoms persist, see a gastroenterologist for evaluation and appropriate tests and treatment will be ordered. In the meantime try to see if specific foods bring on symptoms.
