I suffer from bad digestion and it seems to come in cycles. it kinda seems to be centered around fat comsumtion. when the cycle starts the symptoms are weight loss-could easily loose 10 lbs in a week, bad smelly gas, uneasy feeling in the stomach area and discomfort, tired, sweaty and somewhat flushed after eating fatty food, breathing problems, tightness in the morning, tightness in the stomach area during the day too-kinda feels like i can't breath deeply and expand my chest as much. not to much pain or nausea though. some blood work came back that i have slightly high lipase levels. did a stool sample and neg for h-plori. i have a great appetite and eat all the time. on prilosec and it seems to help for awhile and then it stops working. the docs can't find anything so far. have not done an endoscopy because so expensive. I'm hoping to find some answers.

Are you refraining from bending over and laying down for a few hours after all this eating?

Maybe try another medicine. I had my endoscopy before I was put on PPIs.
