Certain activities such as sex or masturbation can force air up there, or certain positions can allow air to enter. It happens to all women. If you are having any discomfort with this or feel that it is worsening, let your doctor know. ...Read more

Constipation...: If you're young and otherwise healthy, it sounds like you're constipated - which can bring on hemorrhoids and bleeding. If, after increasing your fruits and veggies, water intake, and fiber, you're still constipated, make sure you see your doctor to get a check. They'd want to rule out more serious causes of blood in the stool like masses (tumors or growths) in the colon or rectum. ...Read more

Hi, I'm 38 years old, 6 weeks pregnant and I have a lot of gas... Why would my stomach above the belly button be hard to the touch but with no pain?

Gas: Gaseous distention is a fairly common problem since progesterone relaxes smooth muscles. This is good in the uterus since it prevents it from contracting and expelling the fetus but less good since it also relaxes the bowel and makes it move food and gas along less efficiently and relaxes the sphincter at the top of the stomach increasing reflux.As long as there is no pain it is nothing to worry u ...Read more

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 alternatively treated causes (H. pylori infection for example). Discuss your ongoing symptoms with your doctor. ...Read more

I have gerd, when I have a lot of gas I get upper back pain, goes away after burping, happens when I eat big meals usually?

Simethicone: Simethicone dissolves the gas and that will help you. Obviously, eat smaller meals. Check and make sure you are not gulping down air when nervous or talking too fast (aerophagy). Consider taking a proton pump inhibitor to fix your gerd. May want to discuss your options with a GI specialist, may want to check for barrett's esophagus at some point also. ...Read more
