This is Dr Basu, experienced Internal Medicine Specialist.
I am here to address your concerns and provide great service.
This is again viral gastroenteritis.
Inflammation of the stomach lining is the problem here.
Gas forms due to the slow stomach movement --food stays longer and more gas forms.
Not being able to eat also makes air fill up the stomach and bloating.
These symptoms may take sometime to improve.
But you can help your symptoms with following over the counter remedies:
Maalox liquid 30 ml 3 times a day before meals;
Simethicone ( GasX) strips 1-2 at a time 3 times a day after meals.
Only follow BRAT diet for now --soup, rice, toast, bananas.
You can advance your diet as tolerated.
You can also start a probiotic daily.
It was my pleasure to help you today.
