Hi I am a 41 yr old male I am 6' and weight 165 lbs, the last few weeks I noticed when I eat I get so full and my stomach gets so tight and I get pains that last for hours after I eat with the tightness that feels like I am going to pop open. The last few years I know I have been watching what I eat more spicy stuff gives me heartburn alot. I can't get in to see my Dr for 2 more weeks ( I go to a free clininc where I am unemployed and don't have much money or any insurance for Dr visits/test and all)
I don't won't to wait if I may have some sort of blockage in my intestins or my stomach, or pollops or even some type of cancer, My dad had ulcers & pollops when he was younger ( had to have half his stomach removed when he was my age) . I also the last few days get pain under both sides of my ribs.
I have read on the internet places where I might need to do the "Colon Cleaning" thing, so I have been eating less and drinking apple/prune juice, more fiber and detox teas, and activia yogurt to add good bacteria in my stomach, and keep me regular which I have not been lately. The tightness seems to be getting worse the last few days, even with doing the cleaning (cleaning me out) thing so far., I can only eat just real small amounts and I start feeling tightness/pain/fullness some morning when I first get up and get started I already feel that way before even eating anything...I do eat a banana each day as a while back I went to the ER because they said my potassium was real low and I was passing out/ and was losing feeling in my hands and feet, and hyperventaliting (not happened in a while tho)

Any ideals what this could be I really don't want to wait too long before able to find out what this is in case i have major problems I need to get taken care of

Same here....I always feel like vomiting after eating.
The stomach is always tight, the whole body is just so uncomfortable because of that. And I keep burping, just continously for hours.

Please do let me know if there's an answer for this.

My solution
Y'all should try this. I had the same thing. I was watching the view the other day, (don't judge) and there was a nutritionist who said it is due to lack of DIGESTIVE ENZYMES. go to GNC (or wherever..) and get "super digestive enzymes" and also take Flax Seed oil, and ginger root. been on this remedy for 3 days. Almost cured. no joke.
