Dyspepsia

I'm a 26yr old male from Australia, with mainly dyspeptic symptoms of bloating and tightness in the stomach/upper abdominal area. It started a few years ago when I had very large meals I would noticed I get bloated and feel constipated afterwards. I attributed it to just eating too much. Since 2013 these symptoms came on more frequently and with just regular sized meals, primarily the bloating and a feeling of my stomach becoming really tight and heavy. In the past 6 months the feeling of tightness kind of just lingers around even hours between meals and its just a frustrating...

I've experienced burping and digestive problems for my entire life. All foods seem to cause it, with the exception of water. I eat vegetables and fruit and small amounts of protein daily.

Many years ago I was told by my MD that I had a hiatal hernia.

Many of the foods that I've attempted to switch to circumvent it have not changed anything. Still wake up in the middle of the night with burping and gas.

I've tried 'dairy', low protein, no protein, vegetarian for many years, avoided acid vegetables and fruit, the only thing that appears to help is to eat small; up to...

My son has suffered from functional dyspepsia for a long time. He is a teen now and the latest treatment we have tried is medical hypnosis. I read the articles on medical hypnosis on the website. I am in the health care field of cancer care also and was open to whatever treatment modality would help us.

We are at no. 7 and my son is feeling amazing. After just one visit I saw a difference in him with...

For the past few months I had been having a problem swallowing my saliva. I webt to my doctor a few weeks ago and she said it was acid reflux. So i thought ok i can just take some otcs and I'll be ok. Wrong!! I didn't realize how much this eould affect my life. It's like my life has done a complete 180. I'm only 23 and I'm mostly in good health other than this stupid acid reflux. I went from being able to virtually eat what i wanted without problems to having to literally eat and drink in fear. And I'm on vacation and omg it's been terrible. I had to ride a plane and i think the plane ride...

I am a 24-year-old female. Throughout my childhood I suffered with constant GI problems. My parent's told me that when I was a baby I could projectile vomit like you would not believe. As long as I could remember, I would throw up almost daily. It was fairly random and just became a part of my life. Later on, when I was in my teens I had horrible problems swallowing. I would have to have a huge glass of water near me to be able to eat and get the food down. This was chalked up to not chewing my food well enough, although I KNEW that was not the case.

I was 18, and it was the day...
