I'm often experiencing bloating and gas after eating. I also get extremely gassy when I have a beer (it doesn't happen if I drink hard alcohol though)?

Consider: Well it is time to do a food diary. It may be gluten intolerance since beer my have grains like wheat and the protein gluten. Beer is also carbonated which can contribute to the problem. It does sound like you suffer from some tyoe of food allergy. You will have to do a diary and then find out through a system of elimination.

Need evaluation: 2 weeks is not enough time for decision-making, but you should expect to experience some degree of improvement by this time. Heartburn or abdominal pain that does not respond to ppi therapy should be evaluated further for potentially more sinister (ulcer or malignancy as examples) or treated causes (H. Pylori infection for example). Discuss your ongoing symptoms with your doctor. ...Read more

Constant bloating/excess gas 9 days now, worse after eating. Get full super fast and short of breath from the bloating. Tried GasX n Zantac, (ranitidine) no relief?

Air swallowing: The commonest cause of gas is swallowing air. The other things mentioned are certainly possible but less so. Try to pay attention to what and HOW you are eating and swallowing. For instance sucking on candy or eating items that require lots of chewing and multiple swallows put more gas into you, also eating rapidly, pay attention to your swallows ...Read more

Bad digestion: There are several possible considerations for maldigestion. Ibs, celiac sprue, lactose intolerance (e.g. Lactase deficiency) or other food intolerance, small intestinal bacterial overgrowth to name a few. I suggest taking a probiotic supplement to correct any imbalance in intestinal flora and dietary change to a low-fodmaps diet (ibsfree. Net). If not better, see a gastroenterologist. ...Read more

Can gastritis cause difficulty in weight loss? Been eating low carb, counting calories, lots of exercise, no weight loss! Lots of gas, bloating, cramps

Yes.: Gastritis can cause improper digestion with gas, bloating, and cramps. This indicates a problem with stomach acid, small intestine enzymes, gut bacteria or combination thereof. Carbohydrates may stay too long in stomach and/or proteins/fats may pass through too quickly resulting in fermentation or putrefaction. Use enzymes, betaine and acidophilus from professional sources for best results. ...Read more

Diet vs Other: In the absence of weight loss, diarrhea or active heavy alcohol use, this may have more to do with the types of food you are currently eating. Foods that are high in fat (fried foods) and carbohydrates (bread) can often challenge the gallbladder and/or intestine resulting in the symptoms you described. There is testing available for gallbladder dysfunction as well as for gluten sensitivity. ...Read more

Ongoing3 months, EGD showed chronic gastritis (CG).  Now constant bloating after eating, gas and stomach discomfort but no cause. Could be Post IBS?

Gastritis: I assume that the gastroenterologist prescribed a regimen for healing of the gastritis, but since symptoms are ongoing has he/she recommended a follow-up egd for evaluation and to determine whether gastritis is still the cause of these persistent symptoms? If there is no longer signs of gastritis perhaps you have lactose or gluten intolerance or gall bladder dysfunction. Discuss this with your MD ...Read more
