Is anyone here dealing with abdominal bloating sensations?

It is a chronic problem for me.

    I also often have problem with bloating especially after a heavy meal. I thought that this is due to my chronic gastritis. After reading an article in this site, now I realize it is mainly because of my copd. This article really enlightened me.

    I also have bloating and would like to know the answer as well. I also have more phlegm after I eat for some reason. Could anyone tell me why that is?

    Hi Sharona2 and thanks for posting your interest in COPD and bloating. You may have seen the link to the article posted below, but I thought you might also find this article on bloating to be of interest to you: https://copd.net/living/bloating-part-1/. As far as your concern about having more phlegm after you eat, there are certain foods that tend to increase the production of phlegm – certain dairy products come to mind for starters. You may want to discuss that further with your physician. All the best, Leon (site moderator)

    Hi. Mickey22. You’ll find there are quite a few people with COPD who also have bloating. It’s a common co-ailment with COPD. There are various theories why. There’s some articles on the site if you’re interested, such as this one (
    https://copd.net/living/bloating-why-what-to-do/) There are also some written by fellow COPDers, like Derek (https://copd.net/living/bloating-part-1/) and (https://copd.net/living/bloating-part-2/) John. Site Moderator.

    I have bloating…..and for quite awhile I thought it was from my cooking. When I was finished cooking a meal I felt like I already had my share. It doesn’t last too long, but it does a number on my appetite.
