Spasms??

An_242292 posted:
I have been having this issue for over a year now, and it happens when I am hungry or after I eat something and is worse if it is something greasy or fatty. It feels like my stomach is spasming or I have something inside of me trying to kick or claw its way out and now I am noticing my abdomen is swollen and its hard for me to lean over. I feel bloated all the time and sometimes I can actually feel the gas in my stomach, causing it to rise. Am I alone or imagining this? Is this typical for IBS or should I be even more concerned it is something worse?

Hi Anon,

I am sure you are not imagining this and understand how uncomfortable gas pains can be.

This link to Gas and Bloating may offer some ideas to help figure out what is going on.

Also, this Food Diary & Symptom Journal may be helpful to determine causes.

Have your doctor offered any suggestions or have you had any GI studies?

Elizabeth
