my family doctor did a check up and found nothing. we had some blook work done and now waiting for results.

Hello Tony,

Was ultrasound for abdomen/ x ray for dorsal spine/ stool analysis or scopy done?
Customer: replied 3 years ago.

none of those

Your symptoms likely suggest abnormality at the bowel loops {inflammation or infection}. The cause can be viral, bacterial or parasitic infection/ inflammatory bowel disease or allergy. These may be causing more gas formation and so the bloating feeling. Dehydration {due to heat} may be adding to the severity of the symptoms.

I would get stool and blood tests/ scopy to get more answers.

Till than - Have balanced diet, adequate fluid/ avoid alcohol, smoking/ do not get exposed to heat/ lose excess weight if any and exercise daily. Gas-X and TUMS should relieve symptoms.

Wish you well.
