Bloating, Gas, Excessive Saliva, Gurgling.

I am new to this forum and don't usually reach out in places like this about medical issues but I needed to put it out there in case someone here may have similiar symptoms.

For the last two years (this past year being the strongest) I have had ongoing issues with bloating, gas bubbles, gurgling in my stomach and excessive saliva production. When I get gas bubbles they usually are isolated to my left side and I literally can feel them moving around. It's uncomfortable and embarrassing. Then the bubbles will get stuck and cause me pain and discomfort. This sometimes happens right before bed I spend a lot of time trying to work out the air.

I have a pretty easy going diet. I don't drink soda, I don't drink caffine. I am not a smoker, nor do I chew gum. I gave up all that stuff when I was a teen. I am 37 years old now. I AM lactose intolerant so I don't eat dairy. I have soy milk with my cereal in the morning and that's it. I don't eat much junk food either. I am also pretty active.

My next problem is a bit more embarrassing but I have a lot of saliva production that causes me to have to spit. When I do spit it is a significant amount too. I donít know why this happens but it feels as if it builds up in my mouth while I am talking etc and I get almost a frothy mouth. This has been going on for about three years. And I donít feel I can swallow the excess saliva because it will give me a stomach ache or feels like I am swallowing bubbles.

If anyone has similar symptoms and has had a doctor find a diagnosis, please share. I am so tired of these issues. I have talked to a doctor about it but they tied it to stress and said I needed to take Priolsec but what I have isnít GERD. I have occasional heartburn but only after meals that would usually give someone heartburn.

Help,
