sorry to hear this
any pain in your abdomen?
since how long you have this problem
Occasionally, but nothing major. It has only happened a few times and lasted for 10 seconds and then quickly went away.
so this is something which is new and was not there before?
The constipation I have had for a very long time. I had a colonoscopy 9 years ago and another one 3 years ago and both times the results came out fine. I have had the problem before of feeling full, but the problem had gone away. Before, I would get full very fast. I took Nexium and felt better. About a month ago, I had similar problems again. I then took Prilosec, and felt a little better. And last night is when I had the problem that I am describing now.
what is your height and weight?
I am 5 feet 9 inches tall and I weigh 320 pounds.
any other medical problem or medicines you are taking?
I take Diovan HCT for hypertension, and I am off and on Synthroid. I still have to go get blood work done to see if they need to change my Synthroid.
thanks a lot for the information
a few things to consider here
as you must know that your weight is on higher side so that do contribute to some degree of indigestion and dyspepsia
secondly i would like you to have yout thyroid function tests done as well as it can also be contributing to your constiption and weight
you can take prilosec and some prokinetic like domperidone to see if it helps
another thing which can be responsible is an inflammed gallbladder so you should consult your doctor and get evaluated on these lines
What is dyspepsia?
a condition in which there is impaired digestion and can produce such symptom as pain and fullness after meals
So, if I take action on these 4 factors, I should be O.K.? I have lost 15 pounds so far. I do intend to take care of the blood work by Saturday. I do have a supply of Nexium and Prevacid. And now that you mentioned it, I will ask my doctor about my gallbladder.
yes you should get better as far as your symptoms are concerned but then the exact treatment will be decided once a diagnosis is made after further investigations
