yes, as you can see by my screen name I've done it. I've had a poor diet like so many others and now the problems are striking like a lightning bolt and I feel like I can never be back to where I was even less than a year ago, healthwise. im a 20 y/o male, on internship in washington dc. in dc i didnt come down here with much money and every thing is so much more expensive so i went for the cheapest eats in dc, which were frozen dinners at the grocery store and fast food, a diet which ive been on about a month and a half only. i ate those every day for dinner for a month and a half and ever since saturday ive had serious indigestion. My symptoms are constant belching, bloating, and fullness after only a little bit of food, all of this affects my breathing too even though i have no breathing problems ever found in me before this.

i did some research online and on this site and went out and got some zantac 150. I digested a pill ast night and felt like a new man in only an hour or two. i could breathe a full breath, exercise a lot better, and felt like i had no problems. so i went to sleep last night thinking 'is it over? is this just a short term problem?' so i wake up this morning and pour a bowl of cheerios and milk and have an apple with it. literally with every spoonful of cheerios and apple bite i could see my stomach expanding. by the time i was done with the meal all my symptoms were back and i felt awful again. i took another zantac and it causes me to burp nonstop all this morning and it sounds like there is a battle going on in my stomach. please help i dont know what to do. i fixed my diet now and exercise every day but i am not seeing any improvement. have i done permenant damage to my self? cheerios and a apple! you cant get more healthy than that. and yet i have these problems??????

for the record, before i got to dc i had some small symptoms of bloating after meals but it wasnt constant and would be resolved by taking two tums. it was nothing at all like this. and i cant see a doctor. its too expensive in dc and i dont want bad medical record affecting my employment opportunities with the government.

and no indigestion is not caused by anxiety, otherwise why is this happening now. dc = dump cash or digest crap
