Hi, appoligise if i've posted on the wrong thread.

My girlfriend has gassy problems after eating. :?
Everytime she has a snack or meal she burps and sometimes the food comes back up. This happens after 5 minutes and continues for a couple of hours.

This has been an ongoing problem for several years, and been getting worse.

She has been to the doctor once, 6months ago and was told to take gaviscon tablets before eating. This doesnt really help at all.

I'm really worried because she doesnt eat properly and gets bad cramps.

Any advice will be greatfully recieved
thanks

Why don't you phone the specialist instead of waiting for him?

Hopefully This Could Help
Have she ever been checked for gallstones? I am no specialist but i've been dealing with gallsotone problems for 3 years now. Her symptoms sounds very much like mine in the begining even now after having my gallbladder removed for two years, I still have the same problem. Now stones are developing in the common bile duct which blocks it off and I get the burping constantly and usually end up vomiting it back up. If she hasn't already she should ask her doctor to perform an ultrasound to see if she has gallstones? Hopefully, this could be of some help to you? Wish you luck!

I feel her pain
I had my gallbladder removed 10 years ago. Over the past few years I've had this same issue with food coming back up... I don't have the best diet but I can't believe that the type of food that I am eating is making this happen...it happens with most all food that I eat... I also have indigestion sometimes to the point of pain... it seems to me that something must be wrong... good luck! If you find anything out please post as I am still searching for my own answers.

Especially eHealthy
Has she been back to the doctor since the gaviscon tablets aren't working? She needs to be her own health advocate. If it isn't working, go back to the doctor again and again and again. Some symptoms represent more that one issue so for a doctor to sort it out in one visit isn't always a reasonable request.

Sounds like he thought is might be an ulcer so he advised gaviscon. If her issue is in her gallbladder, the advise would be something different.

Does this happen all the time or only after certain foods? Is it worse when she drinks alcohol? Is it worse at night?

Not everyone replies to every post they read because they don't have any answers.

Maybe it is GERD? If she's had it for a long time, her esophagus could be very well be deteriorated a lot... in which case, it's not going to be hard for the food to come right back up. I've gotten food coming back up sometimes because of GERD.

To avoid this happening, if this is her problem, she needs something like Nexium or the "purple pill" to keep the reflux at bad and also REPAIR the damage to the esophagus, which other medications don't do. She should stay away from acidic foods and only eat very small and frequent meals rather than the traditional three meals a day.

I hope that helps out a little.

I agree. First thing I thought of was Acid Refux (Gerd).

Bad burping
I had the problem of burping after eating for years. Just recently I was diagnosed with LPR (laryngopharygeal Reflux) The syptom that made me finally go to the doctor was Laryngitis off and on for several months without a sore throat. I believe it just started out as GERD but worsened. This condition is where the lower and upper esopageal sphinctors don't close all the way allowing acid to come out of your stomach. Sometimes you feel like you have a constant lump in your throat and food comes back up. Although this is usually a condition of older people, I am only 38 and am one of the younger ones. It is worth possibly going to see an ENT specialist for some testing. I would also check out the gallbladder condition. Good luck in helping your friend.

re:
Why don't you try a simple bowel cleanse. I used to have gas not only after eating but 24/7, constant bloating with sharp pains. After the food intake, I had a feeling like it was stuck and would move back up, not pleasant.

What also helped me a lot as a follow up to the cleanse is to stop eating dairy that I cannot boil. I boil milk, I eat cheese fondu, and I avoid milk products such as whip cream, milk cream, yogurt. Hope this helps.

rumination syndrome
it could be rumination syndrome. usually it's described as burping up mouthfuls of undigested food and being able to chew and swallow it again. theres no medications for it and is hard to treat but it;s worth checking out to see if that's what she has. best of luck to you.

rumination syndrome
I have rumination syndrome and have the exact same problems as you discribed like Bad Burping And Regurgitation After Eating and cramps. I've had it for many many years and just now recently they found out what it is. I had a blood test and a tube through my nose down to my throat that recorded how much stomachacid I have when I regurgitate. I am going to eat ten small plastic beads that i have to eat for 6 days and then on the seventh day I'm going to the hospital for xrays once evry hour to see how the beads go through my body. theese are all test that one goes through when one has rumination syndrome. I am going to se a dietician and a behavoiur therapist. Maybe your girlfriend will have to do the same proceduers if she see a doctor ( if she has rumination syndrome)

Hi annabillyb!

I'm not sure what country you live in but I live in Sweden so unless you live in Sweden too I'm afraid I can't help you.
But I can say that I was given a medicin for my rumination syndrome called Primperan that I took and got awful side effects wich ended up with me in the hospital!
So I wouldn't recommend it to anyone. I am starting on a new medicin called Motilium wich is apparently very good according to other people who have tried it.

Good luck!

reflux
hey i have same problem. regurgitation of food and stomach cramps. i am only 25 and this is happening on a daily basis. ive been to doctors time and time again but all that he has come up with is that anxiety causes this problem. its very frustrating, however ive been prescribed nexium and that has eased the symptoms. certain foods seem to set it off such as ice cream, coffee, chocolate and alchol. kyle
