I have a question...

I have a question regarding bloating

Doctor's Assistant: What are all the symptoms you're experiencing (e.g. loss of appetite, fever, rash)?

Right now, i cannot eat. if I do, i get quite light headed and feel like it is hard to exhale

Doctor's Assistant: How long have you been dealing with this? Is there anything in particular that makes your head feel worse or better?

Since Tuesday night, off and on. As to the head - usually once my stomache/instestines/bowel calms down, it subsides. I did briefly have a fever

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

Not allergic to anything, have tried a stool softner which helps a bit, also - it feels a bit like constipation,

finally
could not find how to respond
47 yo male, non smoker, mild nausea, no vomiting, pain is from distended and bloated belly, been suffering for roughly 6 days, body aches after I deflate, cannot eat as instantly bloat, mild alchohol (none in a week) take zantax as required

Sorry for late reply and inconvenience.

Thanks for all these additional information.

I understand your concern.

Well as you describe, it sounds viral infection and Indigestion.

You should take OTC Prilosec empty stomach and Zantac 150 mg after meals at bedtime for 7 days.

Also, take OTC Mylanta gas and continue stool softener.

You should take OTC Motrin.

Hydrate yourself with Gatorade and eat easy to digest food like soup or BRAT diet (bananas, rice, applesauce, and toast).

Start a probiotic and yogurt.

If your symptoms will persist then see your doctor for further evaluation and management.

Let me know if you have any further query so we can discuss it thoroughly in every aspect.

Prilosec, Mylanta, Motrin. have been on little more than water, and yogurt. Anything else?

Thanks for the follow-up.

Gatorade is better than plain water.

Take all other such measures as we have discussed earlier.

Hope this helps.

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.

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.
