I had a couple of days with the flu. I had stomach pain and weakness for 2-3 days. I had 4 very loose stools. After being sick I totally noticed my stomach terrible distended. Now, after 6 weeks and a normal ultrasound, cat scan and colonoscopy, I still look like I am 4 or 5 months pregnant. I was very gassy and belchy for a week after the flu and now I belch extremely. I did this past week have some horribly sour reflux. I have lost weight because my stomach feels very uncomfortable if I eat my usual well sized portions. I have tried avoiding dairy. Now I am taking the meds for lactose intolerance. I took the presc. aciphex and had no relief of symptoms. I am going to have a scope down the throat to check that end of my body. Do you have any idea why this would be happening to me?
Actually the colonoscopy showed spasms in my colon. So, the doctor said to take metamucial and see if that helps. I really didn't go in because of stool problems though. If you have any ideas about my symptoms, please let me know. I don't have pain. Just a extreme feeling of fullness in my stomach after I eat and drink at complete meal.
