Barrett's Esophagus

Posted by living to shop @livingtoshop, Sep 3, 2011

I have begun to notice that my stomach is very distended and I have gained 15 pounds in about 5 weeks. I do have pain very serious pain at times but nothing that is continuous. Being Post Menopausal and having small cysts on my ovaries I thought that was the problem. Now my constipation is out of control, nothing is really helping that problem. Anyone with similar condition or information would be so helpful. Thanks you.

Interested in more discussions like this? Go to the Digestive Health group.

the constipation can cause terrible bloating and distention! I have had that problem for years and finally was diagnosed with celiac disease, Now that I am on a gluten free diet I am practically normal again. You may want to get tested.


Hi Misty, thank you for answering my question. If I am not mistaken my doctor did a blood test to check for Celic which showed nothing. That was last October, since then my symptoms are growing. Night Sweats are horrible and I noticed a large lump in the back of my neck a few days ago. Maybe I have a virus or something.


Have your thyroid checked if you haven’t already. Thyroid disease can cause weight gain, night sweats and sometimes the thyroid gland (in the neck) becomes enlarged.
