    Default stomach problem

    I have had a stomach problem for about 7 yrs. The top port of my stomach (from below the ribs to above the belly button) starts to feel like I'm having a spasm attack. It feels like a baloon expanding. Then I start feeling weak and shaky. The shaking will last for about an hour. When this problems first started, it would happen a few times a year and now it happens a few times a week.

    I have gone to number of drs and no one heard of it. I don't have the money for the extensive tests. I had a CT scan done and it cost me $600. of which the insurance didn't cover and they didn't find anything. And that is where I stopped. I was told that the stomach area is a vary black area, meaning it is hard to detect where the problem
    is.

    If you or someone you know has had these symptoms please share it with me. Please do not send me e mails scaring me with stories of what it could be. I don't need to hear that, knowing that I don't have the money to have all the tests under the sun done. I just want to know if you know anything about it. I'm not trying to be mean about it.

    Thank you,
    Melissa

    Do you have diabetes? Do you eat a lot of sugar or did you have any antibiotics? I think you may have yeast overgrowth or a problem with wheat?
    I have yeast overgrowth and the balloon feeling is what I first had.
    I have a solution for both.Please answer my questions and i will reply.

    Default stomach problem

    From your description this problem would be in your intestinal tract not your stomach.
    I read your email to a friend who is a retired
    GI nurse and she thinks you&#39;ve developed a
    food allergy sensitivity which would cause
    the bloating and pain resulting in the shakes you experience. Also gas pockets
    develop which press on nerves causing
    pain and shakes.
    You first need to look at common foods in your diet, ex. dairy, grain products, yeast, wheat, and remove the food/beverage for
    at least a week, two weeks even better.
    What you&#39;re looking for is food allergy/
    sensitivity which would cause the pain and
    bloating. Have you tried the over the counter GasX? This may give temporary
    relief but you need to determine what food
    or drink would be causing the problem.
    (I can&#39;t drink real lemonade because of
    bloating)

    Another thing to check, as weird as it might sound, is

    the presence of parasites. Any chance you ever

    traveled internationally?

    Melissa,
    Have you tried food elimination to see if you have an allergy or intolerance? Try cutting out dairy for 2 weeks, if that doesn't help, try eliminating gluten product (wheat, barley, oats and such). These are the two most common allergens.Most packaging is labeled with allergy information these days. I tried this and found I have a gluten allergy. It took onlyabout 3 days to feel better. Hope that this helps and that you feel better soon!

    I finished reading a book called "The Maker's Diet," and it says

    something along the same lines as what Shussy said. In the book is a

    lot of research, great information and common sense. The story of the

    author is very compelling, as well. I went on the diet, just to feel

    better in general, and have noticed the difference. According to the

    author, however, many ills may be diverted by exposing yourself to

    fewer processed and chemically altered foods (you'd be surprised how

    many you eat), and going with the plan that your body is meant to

    handle. I really hope this helps. I've been impressed, and I haven't

    even followed it terribly closely. I'm sure strict adherance to it

    would be terrific. I am glad to say that the tastiest foods are

    absolutely yours to eat, just not the junk food. Read first, then see

    for yourself.



    Take care! GB, Carole

    Liss, if any one of the presidential candidates would put you in

    charge of health care, I'd gladly change my vote if need be.


    Or maybe we should just cut out the middle man/woman and you

    should run yourself - we could call it the Common Sense Party
