so bloated its hard to breathe

hi im just wondering if anyone else feels so bloated that they cant breathe properly and cant get a deep breathe, ive been bloated now for 2 months and doctor just keeps feeling stomach and sayin there seems to be wind trapped in the stomach, small intestine which is making it push my diaphragm up making it hard to breathe. do people get this with IBS, ive also been constipated for weeks, he gave me fibregel at first which did nothing, then lactulose which didnt help much and now im on merbenthyl because he says it will stop the bloating. its the breathing im most bothered about though and was just wondering if anyone else has this.

Re: so bloated its hard to breathe

Your bloating could be caused by the friend bacteria in your GI tract is out of balanced and needs to be re-balanced. And of course trapped swallowed air does not help.

You have to solve the constipation problem -- have you tried Milk of Magnesia.

Then try eating yogurt with alot of active cultures -- I like and use Stonyfield Farm and Cascade that are sold in most health food stores. Kefir is also good.

Also, take some probiotic supplements several times daily to try to get the friendly bactria back in balance. I like and us Pearls, Culturelle, and PB-8 daily but there are many good ones on the market.

God Bless----Harry
