Diarrhea and bloating
january1266 posted:
After a day of diarrhea, I started experiencing gas and bloating. Havent had much of an appetite and really only ate toast and soup for 4 days. Now experiencing bloating, and still no appetite. Im almost afraid to eat but I do, very bland like oatmeal and toast. Any idea why this bloating is bad, more so at end of day? Been drinking plenty of water and Gatorade and juice.

Overeating is the most common cause of bloating. Also gas in the abdomen causes bloating. Exercise may help reduce excess gas and bloating.

Hello DG,
The bloating and gas is from air built up inside your intestines. After a few days of not eating a lot, air was building up inside. Although I had no appetite, and at times felt nauseous, I had to eat. I started small. Had a pb & j and plain pasta noodles, then a few hours later had yogurt and toast. Felt so much better and as the food settled and moved along the air, you will have to pass gas. Keep eating small meals/snacks and you will find it helps tremendously!! You will feel better! When in doubt, call your doctor!
