Hi All,

Have been reading the forums here for about a year now in search of a relief for my symptoms. I think it is getting worst and my doc has not helped me so looking to see if someone's experience can help me. I have been suffering from Gas since about a year or so now; I was diagnosed as having GERD about 9 years back and have been taking those 20mg omeprazoles on and off. Last year I was taking NEXPRO ( Esomeprazole 40mg) once a week. Ofcourse without doc recommendations. Those meds helped me control my acid. However, things changed last december when I started experiencing gas pressure. Suddenly I had to pass out gas to get the relief. Over the time, it has increased. Mainly after meals. Earlier it was too much gas now it started stomach noises after meals. My doc suggested food log however am not able to find the root cause. My H Pylori, Lactose intolerance and Gluten test all came negative. I did naturopathy treatment for about 2-3 months.. was on some medicine called NUX but didnt help at all. Then I found taking apple cider vinegar helps grow good bacteria and controls acid. I started with it, thought it was helping me; however symptoms have gone much worse since last month or so. I am fine in the morning and after lunch however around 4-5pm, I get strange gurgling noise from what seems like intestine. Feel strong pressure to pass out gas and once passed the noises go off.. I am not sure what is going on.. There is a lot of gas but this noise thing has recently started and am now always worried about it occuring during social gatherings. As soon as I feel like I have some rumblings have to step away and try to pass out gas. Have gone to bathrooms to pass out gas and sometimes this thing goes on and on... obviously get a lot of relief but then again the same in 30-40 minutes. I have started taking lots of probiotics ( yogurt and all) but doesnt seem to help.. forgot to mention that due to thyroid issues, my doc also put me on Levothyroxine which I take in the morning...

It is a long read. I do hope I get some help. Docs will only send me for Endoscopy and Colonoscopy. I fear they may not be able to help. That would be the last resort though... I strongly feel that food is not getting digested and get burping at odd times such as first thing in the morning or drinking water...

thanks for your patience..

Thank you Pat Fill for the reply. I have downloaded the fast tract diet e-book on my kindle. I do hope that I get some relief from this every evening nightmare... It is getting impossible to sit with friends and at work in meetings with these symptoms...
