Is there anything I can get from the grocery store or drug store for my bloating until I can see a doctor?

In brief: Yes

Bloating is often related to specific foods.
Avoiding those will help, but there are a number of over the counter medications available for bloating due to gas. Almost all contain simethicone. If you have avoided gassy foods and your symptoms persist you should see you doctor for evaluation to rule out bowel disease or other causes for your symptoms.

In brief: Gas-X

Many different reasons for this though.
Persistent symptoms warrant evaluation by a medical professional.
