I guess that's what they are.
I've been drinking ginger water and it seems to help a little bit.
Indigestion is what it is it think, the pain is in my chest.
I've had my heart checked test done and my heart is find, anyone else have this problem?

Sorry to hear you are uncomfortable. Do you notice the symptoms with any specific foods or food combos? Ginger is good to help digestion, as is fennel, peppermint and nutmeg, and, to some degree, cinnamon. I've been adding small amounts of cinnamon and ginger to many of my smoothies and fruit purees. Fennel is particularly good for treating gas, so, if you like it, you might consider adding it to your food. Hope that helps.

Yes, I had those the first 3 days. I was eating a lot of broccoli, squash and cabbage salads with basil. I don't know if those foods were the culprit but I'm sure they were moving stuff out of my intestines.
What I would do is lay down and do some deep breathing with diaphragm while pressing on certain points. One is right below the zyphoid process of the sternum. I would have to do that for about 20 minutes till I found relief.

It does seem that i don't chew my food long enough and i eat rather fast my hubby says.
He eats much slower than i do, he will just be getting started when i'm over half way finished with my plate.
