Stomach Pain Symptoms 
From Excess Mucus 

Stomach pain symptoms caused by excessive mucus drainage can be but are not limited to

  • abdominal cramps
  • abdominal distension
  •  bloating and gas

I experienced all these painful symptoms including burning abdominal pain without realizing they were due to the mucus that had built up within my sinuses and then eventually drained down.  

The excess mucus was due to a food allergy and in some cases a seasonal allergy. 

Ugh! The worse feeling ever!

I would also become nauseated. The cramps were so painful to the point in which I would hold my stomach or lay on my side, praying that the excruciating pain would go away.

My abdominal pain symptoms to include bloating along with the gurgling was a constant occurrence. It seemed like everything I ate made my stomach hurt and caused my bloating along with the feeling of:

  • trapped gas
  • stomach pain and diarrhea
  • and constipation. 

 OMG! I felt so horrible.

Any little thing irritated me while I was enduring this pain. I thought I had irritable bowel disease. I started taking Gas-X and fiber pills to no avail.

Stomach Pain Symptoms Solved?

I suffered for about a year or so until a wonderful nurse informed me that it was because of the mucus accumulation within my stomach.

I’ve always been an allergy sufferer but did not realize it could get that bad. 

Ask yourself:

  1. Do you have reoccurring sinus issues? 
  2.  Do you get ear infections a lot accompanied by pink eye? 
  3.  Do you have a deviated septum? Anything that affects your sinuses, can cause your mucus to back up which results in other problems such as trapped gas, constipation, not feeling fully relieved, etc.
  4. What foods, if any, cause you to have stomach pain?

Neti Pot Truly A Wonderful Invention!

My symptoms would come and go but they often came, which was awful. They would be relieved unbeknownst to me because the mucus would eventually dry up and normally this would only happen when I was adamant about taking my sinus and allergy medication.

One thing that has truly been a GOD sent for my pain pain is the use of a

neti pot, which I use everyday ONLY with bottled water. I would love to thank the person whom invented it because it is absolutely wonderful!

Also, just simply try blowing your nose prior to using the neti pot.  You may find that a lot of mucus will become expeled this way.  If you still feel a bit congested, then definitely give the neti pot a try!

Other Ways That Helped My Stomach Pain

When I'm producing excess amount of mucus due to an allergy,

I normally do several things in addition to the neti pot:

  • I'll take an allergy medication such as claritin, benadryl, etc. to help with the reaction (mostly around the change of the season) ----antihistamine counteracts the histamine the body produces 
  • I'll take a decongestant periodically to dry up the mucus 
  • I limit and/or avoid certain foods that I'm allergic to. I also take digestive enzymes which helps to break down the foods that I tend to have a sensitivity towards. 
  • If you are a gardener, where a mask to prevent breathing in pollen.  

I use a supplementOPC-3, for my allergies throughout the year that has helped tremendously with managing my inflammation.  It's great if you're looking for a natural alternative.
