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

Could I be wheat intolerance? Can eat reduced wheat rye bread but get stomach pain and gas when I eat white or whole wheat products?

Could I be wheat intolerance? Can eat reduced wheat rye bread but get stomach pain and gas when I eat white or whole wheat products?

Possibly yes.: The symptoms you describe sound like you could be sensitive to gluten, a protein that's found in wheat, rye, barley and oats. I can't explain why you can tolerate wheat rye but not white or whole wheat products. They all contain gluten. Your symptoms should be checked out by a doctor. Meanwhile, eat only gluten free grains (corn and rice) and tell your doctor if that reduces your symptoms. ...Read more

Every time I eat food I get gas bad farting bad even if I eat ham or anything

You : You can try taking beano prior to eating foods that cause gas, or try taking gas x after you eat if you experience gas pains or bloating. In additon try cutting down on dairy products and limit your fiber intake if you are eating a high fiber diet. Fiber is good for you, however you have to start out eating very little and slowly increasing over time.
If these things don't work, you should visit your doctor for an evaluation.
Best of luck. ...Read more

I get heartburn every time I eat carb foods (pasta, breads, oatmeal etc). Is this gluten related? I don't experience other gluten allergy symptoms.

Possible: Try gluten-free oat to see if causes the same symptoms. Even though you may not have the full-blown symptoms, and heart burn is not the usual symptoms in gluten intolerance, it cannot be totally ruled out. Nonetheless, it would be a good idea for you to consult a doctor regarding these symptoms. ...Read more

Bad gas, rumbling insides but no bloating if I eat bread products, both types. This only started recently, can anyone help me work out what's wrong?

Gluten sensitivity: Abdominal symptoms that are triggered by eating bread are suspicious for a gluten sensitivity. If you exclude all gluten and get better, then have difficulty when you reintroduce gluten (EG, wheat products), then you will know that is the cause.
Best to talk with your doctor about this possibility. ...Read more

When off wheat for a day, bloat, gas and pain are gone. Then when I eat pizza and white bread the problems return. Intolerance or allergy to something?

When off wheat for a day, bloat, gas and pain are gone. Then when I eat pizza and white bread the problems return. Intolerance or allergy to something?

Wheat allergy/gluten: A wheat allergy can go away pretty quickly. The other wheat-related problem that is common is celiac disease or gluten enteropathy. However, most people with celiac dz do not get better with just one day of avoiding wheat. You could have either, or neither. Some wheat problems don't show up in the tests we run, but if you feel better off it, stay off it. Antihistamines may help if it's allergy. ...Read more

Very unlikely: It sounds like you are on the right track. The PPIs have helped, but you still have some residual reflux symptoms. This is common and may be improved by diet or other lifestyle approaches (elevate head of bed, etc). However, with persistent symptoms you should have an upper endoscopy (EGD) to assess the esophagus and stomach on treatment, and this procedure would also screen for gastric cancer. ...Read more

Every time I eat bread or bread like foods I feel bloated... Why?

Every time I eat bread or bread like foods I feel bloated... Why?

Gluten sensitivity: It's quite possible that you have a sensitivity to gluten, a protein found in wheat & other grains. This can manifest as celiac disease. Your family doc can check for this by ordering a few blood tests such as anti-endomysium and anti-tissue transglutaminase antibodies. Sometimes endoscopy w/biopsy or pill camera is used to make the diagnosis. Search online for gluten-free diet. Need to be strict. ...Read more

I cough every time I eat bread or crackers chips ect. I have UC and just turned 40. Could I have Celiac disease?

I cough every time I eat bread or crackers chips ect. I have UC and just turned 40. Could I have Celiac disease?

Possible: Coughing as an allergic reaction to gluten is a rare but reported symptom. So, yes you can have Celiac disease, but it needs a total work-up to be a confirmed diagnosis. I'm unable to guess confidently about what UC means, but if it is uterine cancer — your healthcare ought to be carefully coordinated. Don't self-Dx or make major changes w/o advice and consent from the team. Best wishes! ...Read more

This might seem strange but every time I eat like homemade bread from like panera i always start to hiccup and they don't go away till I'm done. Why?

This might seem strange but every time I eat like homemade bread from like panera i always start to hiccup and they don't go away till I'm done. Why?

Hiccups: Hiccups result from irritation of the diaphragm. Most commonly, this is from stomach distention. This may be after a large meal, or when one eats quickly consuming large amounts of air. For your purpose, I suspect that the bread you are eating is swelling inside your stomach, and/or, you eat it quickly so you ingest lots of air. Both are leading to stomach distension and diaphragm irritation. ...Read more

Every time I eat a banana, my tongue gets very itchy but not always when I eat something like banana bread. Am I allergic to bananas?

Banana allergy: There is a likelihood that even though you don't react to banana bread, you are still allergic to bananas (and you may even be cross-reactive with avocado, chestnut, and kiwi, as well as latex). I would not be surprised that cooked banana, such as that found in banana bread, would have proteins which are changed from the high heat of cooking, thus causing them not to be allergenic for you anymore ...Read more

Why is it every time I eat my upper stomach above my belly button is always bloated and full?? Then eventually I will release gas and it stinks mostly

Bloated stomach: Hello ~ these symptoms may not be indicative of anything other than that you should eat more slowly, chew longer and swallow less air. BUT, it could be something more ominous. Gastric outlet obstruction could be due to chronic dyspepsia and gastric ulcer disease but it could be due to cancer of the fundus stomach so please see Dr and have Barium meal or endoscopy.thanks ...Read more

Every time I eat heavy food such as meat rice beans even bread I'm getting very bad cramps in my upper abdominal area. I can eat fruits with no issues?

Abdominal pain: Would consider ultrasound to check gallbladder and even head of pancreas rarely you may need an MRI with ERCP to make sure you don't have pancreatic divisum. Could also be gastritis with or without h pylori but friut should hurt as well. Coudl be gluten/soy insensitivity or other food intolerances. F/u with doc

Why do I feel sick and my stomach burns every time I eat wheat, bread, cake, pasta? I have a RAST score of 1 for wheat, but I don't think that's it.

Intolerance: There are a lot of adverse reactions to foods, and true food allergy is only one of them. Even when true food allergy is the culprit, blood testing is not always very accurate. The best diagnosis is made by exactly what you have done — keep track of your reactions to figure out which foods cause them. Then there is nothing else you can do but avoid them — there is no treatment that will help. ...Read more

First : First and foremost you need to be under a doctor's care. If you have an OB you need to contact that doctor right away. If you were confirmed pregnant and now bleeding, your doctor needs to evaluate you. You will need an ultrasound to check for fetal heart tones and for dates (age of your fetus). Honestly with the little amount of information in your post this is my best recommendation.
Good luck. ...Read more
