Lads, my belly looks worse than this. About two weeks ago I started to swell and it just gets worse. I am now in severe physical discomfort. I cannot go through medical diagnosis in person due to work commitments, so am really asking for any advice on how to reduce bloating.

It is highly unlikely I have cancer - really unlikely, but my diet changed a couple of weeks ago to a more traditional Western meat/dairy/flour one than I have been used to for the last few years.

I would appreciate any advice on how to deal with this, it fucking sucks.

Sounds like it could be trapped wind. Pop into the chemist for some fart pills and on the way back pick up a cheap disposable trumpet to make your evening more interesting.

If you're a bit nervous about going to the chemist then pick up some Peppermint Tea.

Lad. Why are you even asking us, you've already answered yourself? Change your diet back to how it was before.

I got the idea that OP had just recently moved back to Blighty after a couple of years in a civilization, hence the sudden diet change.

OP, try taking the wheat and dairy back out of your diet then phasing them back in slowly. I'm no "wheat and dairy" are bad you for crazy, but bread and beer in particular make my stomach bloat out like crazy.

PS: If you're eating more meat and dairy than usual it's also quite possible that you're simply "backed up".

Liver failure.

Lay off the veggies and carbs, eat plenty of protein, take tylenol for discomfort. Should go away after a bit.

Hmmm....now should I take medical advice from the Interwebz posted by some retard septic, or follow my doctor's almost completely opposing advice. I wonder...

Tylenol is a brand name, yanks call paracetamol acetaminophen.

Have you ever noticed how Yanks call everything by its most common brand name? e.g saran wrap instead of cling film, scotch tape for sellotape, sharpie instead of marker, etc.

Hoover

I agree it's much more common in America, but we're not exactly innocent.

The name was never registered as a trademark, and so everyone calls them Jaffa cakes.

That's because yanks drink like poofs.

Also to double-pedant I'd like to point out that anyone taking paracetamol for a hangover instead of aspirin is a fucking mong anyway.

Also I'm sure that plenty of us wake up hungover and ask for a Nurofen rather than a paracetamol.

Honestly though the whole generic aspirin, paracetamol thing is quite particular to the UK. If you go abroad (Europe and the US at least) you're almost exclusively offered expensive brand name stuff, to the point where I often travel with a few boxes of Superdrug brand paracetamol / ibuprofen / aspirin with me if I'm going to be away for more than a month or two.

I thought Ibuprofen was the one that doesn't really help very much with hangovers?

My Nan never learnt to pronounce Ibuprofen apparently, so she calls it 'Ibufen' instead bless her.

Paracetamol stresses your liver (when used properly, this is not much of an issue in an otherwise healthy person), so if you drop it on a hangover you're stressing and already stressed liver. It's an incredibly forgiving organ, but it's still not a great idea.

Do all drugs not stress your liver to an extent though? Why would aspirin be any better?

The swelling in your head, caused largely by dehydration, is part of what makes hangovers so bad. Ibuprofen is an anti-inflammatory and reduces that swelling.

At least, that's my understanding (I'm no chemist, just repeating what I've read elsewhere); it's certainly helped me out on a good few hangovers though.

Am I the only one thinking that after the sorts of night out I have, a couple of painkillers is the least of my worries?

For some reason my parents both call it "brufen". My mum should know better, she's a fucking nurse.

Brufen was the first trade name for ibuprofen. It was under patent until the mid-80s, so all ibuprofen was branded as brufen until then. A lot of older medical professionals never got out of the habit of using the proprietary name.

Younger medical professionals are trained to always use the generic name, mainly for cost reasons - if the generic name is used on a prescription, the pharmacist can dispense whatever is cheapest.
