Bloating & piles
Aug 17, 2006

Hi, I am 36, Chinese from Singapore always have problem with stomach bloating. Will having piles will cause to bloating?? How to cure the current situation? Will Calcium & Magnesium will reduce the situation? Thanks.

Response from Dr. Conway

Piles or hemorrhoids are not generally related to bloating. Calcium and magnesium-based antacids can sometimes help bloating, and it is certainly worth trying this, especially if your symptoms are relatively minor. However, if this approach does not work, you need to consult a doctor to indentify the cause of your symptoms as soon as you can.
