Wild Lettuce

In my reading, I came across something referred to as wild lettuce & how it can help with pain & it doesn't interfere with the digestive system. Anyone tried this? Thanks!

Does anyone experience little "bursts" in their stomach?

Does anyone experience little "bursts" in their stomach?

It's kind of hard to explain, but throughout the day I'll get these little "bursts" on the right side of my abdomen that sound like little farts, for lack of better words, coming from inside my abdomen. It's not like a regular rumbly tummy, but like little gurgly pop sounds and feels like shifting going on. My GI is kind of tired of me and says I'm just stressed from all my jobs. My PCD thinks it's trapped gas, but I'm not sure. She doesn't want to do any… read more

Constipation After Surgery

Constipation After Surgery

I've been constipated since I had surgery about a week & half ago. They warned me this may happen. Anyway, the only thing that seems to be helping me is the colon cleanse supplements I'm back to taking (because I knew they'd work) , but, I can't take them forever. Any dietary/supplements or natural remedy suggestions to help me get back on track? I already take a Probiotic & I've been drinking plenty of water & eating plenty of fiber, fruits/veggies, etc. Stool softeners… read more

Can anybody suggest a treatment for occasional extreme bloating?

Can anybody suggest a treatment for occasional extreme bloating?

From time to time my IBS flares up and when it's at it's worst I suffer extreme bloating. Usually it occurs following eating food (even small snacks). Wind appears to get trapped, made worse by the other effects of suffering IBS ( esp constipation).
At its worst its so bad that if I were a woman I would swear I was pregnant!
I've tried using simethicone but it has little or no effect. I try to eat slowly so as not to take in too much air, but… read more

Acid Reflux "Episodes" While Sleeping

Acid Reflux "Episodes" While Sleeping

Wondering if anyone else has these "episodes" when they're sleeping where acid reflux comes up & when you inhale, the stomach acid gets into your lungs & you wake up gasping for air & your throat is on fire? After about 10 mins of sipping water, I'll be OK again. I had this happen last week & this has happened maybe 3-4 other times over the past few years. It's very alarming, but with each time it happens, I know to try to stay calm. Thanks!

Stomach burning/gnawing

Stomach burning/gnawing

I've had a burning/gnawing in my stomach pretty much all day. Also haven't been going to the bathroom much these past few days. Have maybe had this burning feeling 1 other time in my life & that was before IBS set it. I haven't eaten any foods that I know would irritate my stomach or started any new meds. Anyone else experience this? No relief from Bentyl, Rx Zantac or anything. Thanks!
