Besides my heart trouble & pshoriasis, I have developed this bloating feeling in my stomach. It started in August 2006. It is affecting me as far as climbing stairs, casual walking for excersise. How it is affecting me is that my stomach feels like it's going explode. My doctor did an endoscopy two weeks ago, and he finally got back to me and said my stomach was ok, but I had a slight infection in my duodenum. I have to see him Friday (10/20/06) Will antibiotics take care of the problem, or do you think it's something else, (more serious):confused:

  • So any bowel problem has been ruled out or treated? (eg IBS, ulcerative colitis, celiac disease) Are your LFTs (liver function tests) normal? If your Abdomen is BIG, ask your doctor if it is ascites.
