Dietary modification: The test results you provided are not meaningful. It is difficult to provide useful advice without examining you and taking a detailed history. You need to eliminate foods you suspect to be causing the symptoms. Start with eliminating milk and milk products as lactose intolerance is not uncommon. If that does not work, consult a doctor or a nutritionist.
For good health - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Drink enough water daily, so that your urine is mostly colorless. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually. Do not use tobacco, alcohol, weed or street drugs in any form.
Practice safe sex, if you have sex. ...Read more

I have had an abundance of mucus in stool, cystitis twice, developed a fissure, and constant constipation, burping, back pain and lower ab pain. Help?

Needs full eval: Sandra, this is a concerning and I'm sure distressing set of symptoms that need to be worked through systematically. The mucus in stool is concerning for inflammatory bowel disease; perhaps the bowel issues are contributing to recurrent urinary tract infection & abdominal pain. Pain in back not clear. You need to find a doctor you trust & work through these one by one. No single thing can explain ...Read more

I have 2 endometromias, 8cm and 6cm on ovarys and also having constipation and burping alot. Ca-125 was normal, can this also cause constipation.?

Mayne: Ca125 should not be used as a screening test for ovarian cancer. How do you know they are endetriomas? Unfortunately, you don't know what the are until they are out. Any pelvic or abdominal masses can affect the bowels. If this is a new symptom, you should tell your doctor. Btw. Those cysts are a good size. You at higher risk for ovarian torsion which is an emergency. ...Read more

What can cause constant small burps and constipation and belly/groin noises?

What can cause constant small burps and constipation and belly/groin noises?

Dyspepsia: Constipation itself can lead to a "back up" of the digestive system and cause burps. Certain medications and/or foods can make this worse. Anything that relaxes the bowels can slow transit and loosen the sphincter (valve that keeps the esophagus closed) causing both constipation and burping. Keep a food diary also looking at all foods but esp caffeine, carbonation, dairy, and processed carbs. ...Read more

I am experiencing nausea (severity: mild), burping and constipation. The following also describe me: Passing gas, Abdominal discomfort, and Frequent stools. What should I do?

I am experiencing nausea (severity: mild), burping and constipation. The following also describe me: Passing gas, Abdominal discomfort, and Frequent stools. What should I do?

Doctor can evaluate: Many things are in the abdomen: stomach, pancreas, liver, gall bladder, small and large intestine, abdominal muscles, etc... An exam by a primary care doctor can help figure things out. Pain in the right upper abdomen, especially with symptoms that occur after eating, can be due to gallstones or other gall bladder disease. Frequent stools and gas can be lactose intolerance or a stomach virus. ...Read more

Constant bloating, burping, gas, constipation, back pain. I've CT scan, x-ray, ultra sound, blood test and all normal. What else could it be. HELP?

Constipation: All of your symptoms could be attributable to constipation and the air problems may be related to how you eat and swallow air. I suspect your doc has come to the same conclusion. I would treat the constipation aggressively first and see how things improve after a month or so. ...Read more

My 23months son all of a sudden starts eating less feeling full quickly plus taking excess burps and farts no constipation what could be the reason?

My 23months son all of a sudden starts eating less feeling full quickly plus taking excess burps and farts no constipation what could be the reason?

See answer: In toddlers who start eating less suddenly the causes are many. The usual one is after a recent mild or severe illness. Also caloric requirement of about 1200 calories is very easily met with caloric dense foods & fruit juices. Child usually remains active and has no loss of weight -this wld be reassuring. Lots of gas may herald onset of lactose intolerance. Best wld be to have him examined. ...Read more

I'm having some trouble with constipation and chest discomfort. I keep burping after drinking any liquid and the discomfort goes but comes back again?

Support Stomach.: This is most likely due to a deficiency in stomach acid and/or small intestine enzymes. Try using a digestive enzyme (incl., betaine) with meals. Take bicarbonate (sodium bicarbonate) 30 minutes after meals. Supplement with a high quality, high potency acidophilus as it is needed for lower intestine digestion and helps constipation. Use homeopathic "upset stomach" (nux + carbo) sublingual every 5 minutes for symptoms. ...Read more

I have constipation and a feeling that I need to throw up sometimes. Also a lot of burping and gas. What could be wrong?

I have constipation and a feeling that I need to throw up sometimes. Also a lot of burping and gas. What could be wrong?

If you have had: These symptoms for more than a couple of weeks you need to have a GI evaluation. You appear to have both upper and lower intestinal complaints thus more information and testing is really necessary thus making "guessing" on an online Platform such as this unwise!

See your Heath care Provider as soon as practicable!
Hope this is helpful

I'm always having constipation and I feel full very fast. My lower abdomen feels bloated and I'm always burping. Sometimes feel breathless too. Why?

Insuff Information: I do not know UR age or UR med problems. I do not know what meds U take. If you are bloated from stool there is stool softener (Docusate Sodium). To clear stool quickly Milk of Magnesia (magnesium hydroxide) 2oz or 4 Tble spoons with 12 oz of water should clean U out in 6-12 hrs. I do not know enough about U to suggest anything else.

I have stomach gurgling and I keep burping, I also have nausea and constipation, I have a phobia of being physically sick, can I prevent being sick?

Prevention is good: I wish we all cared about prevention. But it's never going to be 100%. Standard kind-to-tummy is your 1st job. Limit food to bland easy to digest liquid/soft items - broth, tea, milkshake, lots of water. Sips of i/2 water 1/2 organic cider vinegar w/ a pinch of baking soda are magical. Once well, consider an exam to see if there's a problem to treat. If not, good. CBT therapy can help phobias. ...Read more

Diet: If you have had a full work-up for your constipation, including lab tests.
