My colonoscopy was last wed & since then I have wokeup every morning with a bad tummyache & have had lots of gas in the evening. Is it normal or bad?

Check with doc: The symptoms you describe are common right after a colonoscopy (from air that is used to inflate your colon), but they shouldn't last for days. You should let your doctor know you're still having these symptoms. There can be complications from a colonoscopy, and it's important to make sure these are recognized early! ...Read more

Every morning I wake up my stomach is bloated and when I try to use the restroom gas just comes out, what does this mean? Is this a symptom of mono?

Every morning I wake up my stomach is bloated and when I try to use the restroom gas just comes out, what does this mean? Is this a symptom of mono?

Not a mono symptom.: This is not a symptom of mono. What types of food are you eating? Do you have lactose intolerance? Have you experienced weight loss? Do you have right upper quadrant pain (gallbladder issue)? Any difficulty with fatty/fried foods? I would consider a good probiotic. See your physician for a complete work up of your gastrointestinal tract. You need an ultrasound of the gallbladder & blood work. ...Read more

I have diarrhea and gas every morning, I eat about 2 sticks of chalk daily. Usually at nights I eat a slice of bread and some milk. This has been going on for some time I think it has something to do with the bread but I'm not sure?

I have diarrhea and gas every morning, I eat about 2 sticks of chalk daily. Usually at nights I eat a slice of bread and some milk. This has been going on for some time I think it has something to do with the bread but I'm not sure?

? lactose intolerant: Many people can not digest milk sugar, called lactose. Sometimes they may drink regular milk by taking an over-the-counter pill containing lactase, the enzyme necessary to digest it. All that milk sugar is a delight to your bowel flora--they ferment it, causing gas and diarrhea. Now, the desire to eat chalk is called "pica", and may be caused by a deficiency, such as iron. See your pcp. ...Read more

I have gas in my stomach, bloating and severe waist pain every morning?

I have gas in my stomach, bloating and severe waist pain every morning?

WannaSleepAloneForev: That happens to me too, if I eat the wrong things the day or night before and then....I sleep alone. So diet is the first question. Could be dairy, legumes, cruciferous veggies, gluten, or even other less common foods. You could develop a sensitivity at any time. So first try to eliminate something and see what happens. If you can't figure it out that way and it's still bothering you, see a doc. ...Read more

Bowel movement first thing every morning, it used to be varied. Other symp: constant dull sotmach discomfort and gas, no pain.?

Depends: It sounds like you are eating healthier than in the past and having regular bm's. Excess fiber in relation to fluid can produce excessive gas and bloating. If you have had a chnage in bowels and no explanation along with abdominal pain, you should be evaluated properly by a gasroenterologist or colorectal surgeon to make sure nothing more serious is going on to cause the changes. ...Read more

Every morning I wake up with gas discomfort, I was told I'm Breathing through mouth while sleeping, how can I change this unconscious habbit?

Sleep study: You may benefit from a sleep study if your nocturnal mouth open breathing is associated with snoring. I doubt that your symptoms of feeling bloated are a direct consequence of this habit since you don't keep your mouth open all night long. More questions: www. Healthtap.

I wake up each morning at around 3 with stomach or lower intestine cramping like gas. I use metamucill every morning and it's a fairly high fiber diet?

See a physician: Change in bowel habits is an important sign and could indicate something is wrong in your intestinal tract and should be evaluated by a physician to rule these things out. Most likely it is constipation. If you have a normal evacuation of stool, then fiber is good. However, should your evacuation process be abnormal, then too much fiber and/or Metamucil will cause bloating, cramping and gas. ...Read more

Recently stomach upset/gas, thin and little stools if any (after lunch). *1 bowel movement every morning after drinks - stools look OK. This serious?

No, maybe: The stooling doesn't seem serious unless you're also seeing blood, but you could probably use more dietary fiber. The gas doesn't seem serious, unless it's been getting worse & you're having pain. If so, see a clinician for evaluation. Taking OTC ranitidine might benefit. Hope that helps. ...Read more

I have raisin bran every night cause it makes me poo in morning, added yogurt to diet and have lots of gas, and stomach ache in morning- not lactose.?

Yogurt contains milk: Some people are quite sensitive to milk products - and as much as I like yogurt, you might want to try stopping consumption of that and seeing how your symptoms are...If your symptoms improve, then you might want to try Lactaid or something like that to help you digest the lactose in milk. You could make your own yogurt with soy milk if you want the benefit of those 'probiotics'...capsules also OK ...Read more

My 2 month old baby is having watery stool with lots of farts and sour smell. Since sunday morning but only 3 big stools and lots of smear kind.

Infant diarrhea: It sounds like your infant may have gastroenteritis, an intestinal infection. Most cases are viral, but, if there is blood in the stool, this could indicate either a bacterial infection or a milk protein allergy. Continued watery stools can quickly lead to dehydration in infants. You should definitely have the baby seen by the pediatrician as soon as possible. ...Read more

I woke up to a massive headache ths morning & I was very dizzy I also have stomachache like when I have LBM. I keep farting. What could be the reason?

Head & stomach ache: These symptoms could indicate food poisoning, a viral infection, a migraine, severe stress reaction. Need more history. Do you have a fever? Is the headache still there or is it gone now?
If you still have that massive headache, a doctor should see you right away. If the headache and dizziness are going away and you have no fever, avoid dehydration by drinking sips of water.
