Still have a sense of humor, but I am screwed up. My symptoms are:

muscle twitch/spasm - right side below the rib cage
Annoying pressure in my stomach - not cramping
Bad Gas. Like it's trapped in my GI system and wants out.
If I lift my arms over my head, or bend side to side, I automatically burp it.
I have bad ****s (not smelly but huge amounts in volume).
My abdomen is so swollen that It feels as if it is pressing against my rib cage so I sit tall to relieve some of the pressure. I have poor posture.
It's hard to take a really deep breath because it is like my lungs are competing for space. I have to force a deep breath.
Constipation. I have been taking laxatives 3x week to move my bowels.
Horrible growling noises in my intestines. Not the cute ones. BIG noises and I feel the gas move
Nausea that relieved by vomiting after eating

Not overweight. Do not smoke. I do drink - usually 3 wines glasses/less a night. About every night.

I have had this off an on for years. I usually take oral gas tablets with little help. I do not have a "sour or acid stomach"


Thank you:confused:
