stomach gas pain

Hi , im so glad that I am not alone with the same symtoms (symptoms) you have.
I am 54 years old and in my menopausal period .
My mother has this pain for so long that I can imagine how it feels and
was crying to have her being brought to the hospital and they cannot
see what's wrong . Now I know I inherited the same symptoms.
So is it hereditary or its one of the symptoms of menopause ?

I experience difficulty or shortness of breath when I feel the stomach ache,
just this year and I am scheduled to have an endoscopy because of this feeling
wc I keep on delaying because of imagine anxiety over the procedure .

I am taking pantoloc meds once a day , it regulates my acid producing stomach .
It helps but the pains is still there so it must be 1.) due to my depleting hormones ?
2.  Heredity ?  3.  maybe due to some food that I ate that is not digested well or
There are really some veggies , dairy that causes gas ?  

But I can share you my immediate relief from this pain ,,,
I put on top of my stomach a hot water rubber bag (hot compress ) and it immediately
soothes  my discomfort ... Try it , just wrap it with a hand towel so you wont get burn
and also I put on a slice of ginger in my mouth and let it stay to melt  , bite a little to get
its juice till you get use to it ... Hope this will help ...

So glad that this forum exists !  I wont be worried anymore coz I am not alone
with this crazy feeling ...

The ginger is an anti-inflammatory so that gives you a clue as to what is wrong. When bloating makes me short of breath I take simethicone (Gas-X). I chew one tablet and drink a full glass of water. That relieves the situation rather quickly and gets rid of that loopy feeling..

Alternate hot compress and cold compress on your stomach, to get even more benefit.
Also do kapalbhati pranayam for 10 to 20 minutes to help with your other problems.
