Why I feel relief from heartburn after flatulence?

Why I feel relief from heartburn after flatulence?

Pressure release: If you seem to consistently experience relief of heartburn after passing gas, there are a few possibilities. Most likely, the decrease in intra-abdominal pressure with flatulence may decrease compression on the stomach, decreasing reflux volume and acid exposure in the lower esophagus. This acidic reflux material causes the sensation of heartburn. Not a common correlation, but certainly plausible. ...Read more

I have epigasrtic pain wih headache and heartburn with flatulence  and diarrhea what tha diagnosis?

Impossible: It's impossible to give a definite diagnosis based on one sentence. However, I can certainly give a differential diagnosis. You could have esophageal reflux, an ulcer (esophageal, gastric or duodenal), pancreatitis, gallstones, cholecystitis, gastroenteritis (viral, bacterial or parasite), or even some kind of malignancy (which is NOT likely). You SHOULD see your healthcare provider ASAP. ...Read more

Constipation: Constipation is a common problem that can cause symptoms in some people in as little as 1 to 2 days of not passing a bowel movement. Excess and foul smelling gas can go along with constipation (bacteria in the colon produce gas in presence of fecal material). Constipation can also give one the sensation of needing to have a bm, but then not be able to pass any stool. ...Read more

Partly: Sure as heck sounds like you are having some sx's suggestive of gerd, but you also probably have some degree of irritable bowel syndrome. You just seem to have a two'fer. Not unusual in the young patient like you. Dietary changes, smaller feedings, nicotine and caffeine elimination should help.Keep a diet diary, it will help u and ur doc determine the best course o action. ...Read more

I don't have heartburn.But im usually bloated, gas trapped inmy throat/chest, will wake up breathless&.Burping will relieved the discomfort.Is it gerd?

Gas: There's a good chance that you're a gas swallower. Many of us swallow lots of air during the day and get bloated that way. If you're drinking lots of beverages during the day you likely are swallowing lots of gas with them, especially if they're carbonated. If you suck on candy, etc. Pay attention to this and you may be able to decrease it. Simethicone can decrease the size of your gas bubbles. ...Read more

No gallbladder.  Occasional RUQ pain just to right of middle chest.  Have GERD.  Could GERD be the cause? Could it be gas?

Suggest you get this test ...Read more
