Angry Digestive problems...advice needed

For several months I have been experiencing severe digestive and stomach problems. After meals I tend to bloat severely and experience a lot of flatulence and stomach cramps which can be very painful.

This is often further accompanied by air forcing itself back up into my mouth and making me feel as if I need to burp. I am also often experience constipation or diahorrea problems. It is also not uncommon for me to feel tired after eating as if my body feels overworked at having to digest the food.

My problems are especially frequent in the evenings and towards nightime although not exclusive to the latter hours of the day. These problems sometimes seem to occur when I haven't eaten as well.

I find these problems painful, embarrassing and frustrating. I have tried numerous antacids and digestion remedies but have not had any success in curing these things. I feel my diet it also healthy and just wish I could find a way of losing these problems. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

Re: Digestive problems...advice needed

There are a couple of things you might try that have helped others in similar circumstances.

Now sure what your digestive aids included; did you try eating yogurt regularly and/or supplementing with acidophilous, or bromelaine, or Betaine Hcl?

The other is eating according to so-called "food combining" principles. A search will bring up a number of sites. In a nutshell, one eats foods that are primarily protein at separate meals from foods that are primarily carbohydrate; and fruits are eaten separately from other foods.

Exclamation Re: Digestive problems...advice needed

These symptoms sound like they could be related to an allergy... Although many foods won't show up on an allergy test, many of us react in the GI tract none theless....

Keeping a food diary of what you eat, and when the symptoms occur can be helpful in finding a culprit...

A scope with biopsies may be in order and might help find some answers...

Hope you feel better soon..
