I've been constipated, bloated, and have had lots of gas for awhile now. My gastro doctor gave me a med to try and did not do anything at all. I've tried various over the counter items and still no luck. I've been constipated before, but I just took a laxative and all was well after a couple of days.
The reason I am constipated is b/c of the medication that I take. I have gone a little bit here and there, but I have to really strain to get anything out, which I know is not good for you either.
Also, I am so bloated I look pregnant and along with this my chest feels tight and my breathing gets a tight feeling as well.
I called my gastro doc today, hopefully I'll get a call back tomorrow. But, has anyone had the tight chest issue with the bloating--it is very frustrating and sometimes scary.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
