Struggling for the last 5 days with a bloated stomach.

This answer was rated:

Struggling for the last 5 days with a bloated stomach. Burping and letting wind! Ive been going to the toilet regularly but it doesn’t seem to ease it for long! Getting minor stomach cramps also

Thanks for using just answer

sounds like indigestion

There are various remedies that can help such as peppermint oil capsules or peppermint tea, green tea, windeze, buscopan for the cramps

If you're consitpated, then taking dried prunes or laxative helps

I am not constipated. Ive been going to the toilet about 3 to 4 times a day but it still leaves my stomach cramping and a feeling like I need to go again

I said if you're constipated, not that you were

However, if you follow my advice as above, that should help

Ok thank you. How long does something like this generally last?

Well, no one can put a time frame on that

But if ongoing for more than 2 weeks then see a Dr in person

Ok one last question. What do I eat food wise ?

its more what you should avoid

Gluten foods like cake, bread can increase bloating as well as lactose products like milk, cheese so if you've noticed any links, then try avoiding those
