Customer Question
Hello, I became increasingly...

Hello, I became increasingly bloated yesterday and it became so bad and my stomach was so cramped up I couldn’t move. I also threw up several times. I am feeling quite a bit better today, but am still so bloated I can’t stand up straight. Just wondering what this could be? I was on a round of antibiotics and thought maybe that had something to do with it?

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

I was vomiting all evening yesterday

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

Not that I can think of

Has this ever happened to you before and do you recall eating anything different or out of the ordinary the past few days?

This has not happened to me before. I don’t recall eating anything out of the ordinary
Doctor: Dr. Mo, Board Certified MD replied 7 months ago

There are a few explanations, one could be that you ate something that had an elevated bacterial load and that's what caused your body to expel it, the other could be that you had some backing up of stool which prevented your food from going down.

I had no issues with backed up stool yesterday. That was normal- actually more than usual.
Doctor: Dr. Mo, Board Certified MD replied 7 months ago

Not so much constipation, stool can back up without you feeling constipated. If you had more stool than normal then it's possible that it wasn't moving through your intestines well and therefore decreasing movement which could cause you to throw up.

Please let me know what you were concerned about that it could be and I'm happy to address that as well.

Do you think I should visit the dctor?
Doctor: Dr. Mo, Board Certified MD replied 7 months ago

From your post I read that you are doing fine now, if so, then I don't see the need for going in to be seen.

I’m so bloated that I can’t stand up straight right now
Doctor: Dr. Mo, Board Certified MD replied 7 months ago

I see, so the bloating is still quite severe. I would try these 3 things and if you see no improvement in the next 1-2 hours then certainly consider a doctor's visit:

  1. drink lots of water
  2. have several fruit/veggie shakes
  3. go for a bit of a walk after taking either ibuprofen or tylenol to help with the discomfrot

I feel better already! Thank you.

ElanorTracy, CA

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.

JulieLockesburg, AR

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
