Anxiety and stomach bloated

I am a 41 year old male looking for answers for my stomach issues. I was diagnosed with anxiety and GERD back in 2004 and it has got worse since then with no relief. I am now experiencing a very bloated stomach and abdominal pains, which makes it difficult to breathe most of the time. Lately it's been worse at night and along with the anxiety of not really knowing what this is and thinking the worst makes it horrible to live with. I'm on here looking for people with similar issues and hoping to find somebody who has/had this who can help me with finding a cure. I feel like I'm going to die. Every time I go to ER they run blood tests, urine tests, ekgs, CT scans and x-rays and all they say is that it's acid reflux. This has to be more since now it's affecting my breathing. I feel like my abdomen is filled like a water balloon. PLEASE HELP! Any advice would be appreciated!!

Yes, I had the problem. Resolved it by taking a Probiotic. It comes in capsule form. Visit your local health food store. Besides the Probiotic, visit your supermarket and get a container of Kefir. This is also a Probiotic and tastes great. Comes in different flavors. It's in the yogurt section.

Thank you for your advice berkeley3525! Can you please tell me the kind of probiotic that you took? Plus how much per day and how long did you take it? Also did you have bloating that lasted hours and made it very difficult to breathe?

Re: Anxiety and stomach bloated

It's been several years so I don't remember the brand and the directions on the bottle regarding how many to take a day. Simply visit a health food store and ask the clerk for a recommendation and follow the instructions regarding how many to take daily. In addition try the Kefir which is an all natural probiotic and tastes great. It's sort of a liquid yogurt.
