Could Bloating and Severe Digestive Symptoms be H Pylori?
I have had problems with bloated stomach since 2006 and I have gone to various doctors etc with no results. They all say IBS. It is not IBS. First i was on atkins and I am not overweight, I just wanted to lose like 6 pounds, AFter i got off of it, I started eating whole grains, lots of wheat products and thats when it all started. I gained like 20 pounds in a month, my face would look bloated, i looked like six months prego all the time. I couldn't fit into my clothes because of my distended belly, pressure, knee pain, burping all the time no matter what I would drink, water anything. Gas, lower back pain, sometimes upper back pain, sometimes smell of ammonia in my urine, tired all the time, memory problems, then my gyno said it could be my uterine fibroids because they were large and pushing on my colon so i had a myomectomy and one year later I now have uterine prolapse and slight rectal prolapse stage one and my stomach bloating is still present just not as bad. Is it related? Doctors say no. They say is digestive.
I don't know if its related or not or if its from straining due to constipation from this stomach issue. All I know is I'm falling apart. I'm only 42, never had kids, I'm not overweight so none of this makes sense. Tested negative for Celiac, had upper GI, lower GI, ct scan, allergy testing, etc and doctors cannot find out anything. They say I'm fine. Then I decided that I am going back on atkins, This whole time doctors say no atkins eat more fiber which makes it worse. I go back on atkins and all of my symptoms disappear flat stomach, no bloating, feel like a million bucks. So I start food testing. I eat a piece of whole grain bread- bam I wake up the next am with stomach bloating and pressure, I try eating something with MSG in it bam stomach bloating, have some salsa and bam my stomach bloats, ingredients were vinegar, yeast, maltodextrin, anything that is a carb except for rice and potato, bam my stomach bloats. Also I get stuffed up nose, burning eyes, sinus headache for days and it won't go away till i can go to the bathroom. Coors light, - bam I get thee same symptoms. I don't know whats wrong with me, but before I get the uterus issue fixed, i need to find out what is causing the bloating so I don't have to keep having surgeries
