Wellnes Wednesday: Gassy Without a Chance of Flatulence

This past Christmas, I went to the ER for chest pains.  I had gas that was mimicking signs of a heart attack.  The entire ride to the ER, I thought to my self, I eat somewhat healthy, I workout regularly, and I have a 3 year old.  THIS CANNOT BE HAPPENING TO ME!!!!

After an EKG, chest x-ray, and blood work, heart attack and gall stones were ruled out.  The diagnosis: GAS.  Yes ladies and gentleman I went to the ER for heartburn.  The average person expels gas 10 times a day.  Apparently, I am not expelling enough.  My husband says I hold it for souveneir  LOL.  The doctor, suggested I go get a physical, consider losing 5-10lbs (shocker!), eat slower, and get more active.

Everyone suffers from gas every now and then.  Unfortunately, for me it's more often than not :(    Going to the ER may seem extreme, but ALWAYS better to be safe than sorry.  This visit has led me to closer evaluate my health, nutrition, and declining fitness levels.  Please join me as I post my progression towards a less gassy, healthier and more fit me.  More to come tomorrow.  Pics and all (OMG am I really about to put my fat girl on display?).

  2. I can relate to the Gas and the ER visits for GAS.... URGH! What a nightmare. I have to admit that losing 22lbs has subsided the gas and heartburn attacks due to the same symptoms you mentioned above. You cam do... If I did it and believe me it's hard work and dedication. My advice would be to take it slow and celebrate small accompolishments as simple as giving up something in your diet and replace with something healthier. For me it was PEPSI... I haven't had one in 2 years! Oh do I miss the fizz but have replaced it with coconut water and sparkling water for the fizz. You can do it!! I support you.. Let's Go AITPCHE 88
