GasX strips contain only simethicone and will not decrease stomach acid and will not fix constipation if you have constipation or if you have excessive stomach acid.
zantac and prilosec are over the counter stomach acid reducers
along with Maalox or Mylanta antacids
bananas can often cause constipation which can cause bloating and distention in your abdomen.
good luck with your epidural for your back pain.
