Customer Question
I have this feeling...

I have this feeling of bloatedness/full feeling just below my sternum. It feels sometimes like it's hard to get a good deep breath, it's not painful as such but as soon as i eat i feel my stomach is about to explode my bowels are working fine more loose than normal i guess. I've also had like a flu and it keeps coming back i can't shake it.

Doctor's Assistant: How long has this been bothering you? Are you experiencing any vomiting or nausea?

It comes comes and goes but this time for about 4-5 days no vomiting or nausea

Doctor's Assistant: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?

I was diagnosed with diverticulitis last year had a ruptured bowel with that but recoverd fine

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.
