What can I eatto get my bowels moving after hwving the stomach flu?

Drink water: The most important thing is to get rehydrated. One of the most under-appreciated causes of constipation is dehydration, which is common with the stomach flu. Then, just eat balanced meals. If you still need help passing a bowel movement, try an over-the-counter stool softener or perhaps a glycerin suppository. If it's been 3 days or more, check with your doctor. ...Read more

Hiatal hernia: A weakness at the opening to the stomach can cause a hiatal hernia and allow part of the stomach to enter the chest cavity. This may cause food to get stuck before entering into the stomach. An upper GI x-ray or gastroscope could show this.

My stomach won't stop growling and bubbling. How can I get rid of all this gas?

Eat slower: People who are always eating on the run have a tendency not to chew their foods properly, and swallow lots of air when they are eating. Slowing down enough to sit while eating, and to chew your foods thoroughly before swallowing helps. Also it's a great idea not to hop up and start going again right after you've eaten. Slow down and enjoy your meals. ...Read more

I get stomach cramps, a feeling that I can't fully empty my bowels, frequent changes in stools, wind and I go to the toilet a lot. Could I have IBS?

I get stomach cramps, a feeling that I can't fully empty my bowels, frequent changes in stools, wind and I go to the toilet a lot. Could I have IBS?

Yes: Stomach cramps and other symptoms of intestinal dysfunction often reflect IBS, for which there is no known cause. IBS is highly associated with fibromyalgia, which is highly associated with Joint Hypermobility Syndrome. In my opinion, IBS results from autonomic nervous system dysregulation due to mechanical impingement of this soft neural tissue. ...Read more

Maybe the dairy?: As a pediatrician, I see my patients lose their ability to digest milk sugar (lactose) as they grow up. That is normal. Two-thirds of the Earth's population become lactose-intolerant. One can eat lactose-free versions of the same foods, or take a Lactaid tablet with the meal. An inability to properly digest oils and fats is a different problem. One's doctor can look for other problems too. ...Read more

Hi, last night night i was vomiting and today my stomach muscles are really sore. I think i had food poisoning but im not 100% sure. How can i lessen the pain in my stomach muscles?

Tylenol/Motrin: Abdominal muscle strain is very common after exuberant vomiting. It's perceptive of you to recognize this as muscular pain. This pain can take several days to gradually improve, even a week or 2 wouldn't be unheard-of for total recovery. It's safe to use over-the-counter analgesics to relieve pain. Acetaminophen (Tylenol) is easier on your stomach than ibuprofen and may be preferred here. ...Read more

I : I see quite a few tags here without further info on them. Bloating, abdominal pain, acid reflux, vomiting, bowel movement. Because there aren't details attached to the tags, it is hard to know what is going on. But you do need to be evaluated to ensure that intestines, liver, gall bladder and pancrease (pancrelipase) are healthy. Any significant change in bowel pattern should be investigated. ...Read more
