Have Mental Health Questions? Ask a Psychiatrist Online
Hi thanks for getting in touch, could you tell me a little more about what you'd like to discuss?
I See and have you had any tests for this so far?
Do you get a lot of acid reflux?
And do you have any medical problems?
I see. I do wonder if you have something called bacterial overgrowth syndrome. This is a cause of lots of gas and is caused by too much of some bacteria rather than others living in our gut and this can be tested for and treated.
So your GP would refer you to see a gastroenterologist and they organize it for you. It's a test of your breath and they can tell from that and treat you according to that. In the meantime you should start taking a daily pro-biotic supplement as well.
No it's different. That is a bug that lives in the stomach but bacterial overgrowth is a test of multiple bugs and from the bowels rather than just the stomach.
Probably as it causes the stomach to relax a bit but you should definitely ask to be referred for the test. I hope that helped, and that you feel better soon. All the very best.
You're so welcome, all the best for the future and come back if you've further questions.
