  1. Endoscopy shows anything? I had bloatings with intake of alcohol, wine or beer. An endoscopy shows an infection on my stomach wall. It causes swelling which is worsened by certain products such as afore mentioned alcohol. And when that happens coupled with overly large dinner I get pretty much what you described.
    A course of antibiotics and self control not to overeat has solved the problem. Last month I had a reccurance after having a not so sanitary meal ( 2 other diners had bowel problems) it wasn’t as bad and a prescription of probiotics solved that.
    By the way, cravings for sweet sugary drink such as pepsi/iced tea (sweet/cold) usually happens when you have over eaten high sodium food. You might want to just chug in water, and lessen your portions.

  2. Caffeine could be bothering you, but you probably should look at gluten intolerance (celiac) or possibly SIBO (small intestine bacteria overgrowth. An elimination diet may be helpful as well.

  3. You know what- that does sound extremely weird. Not like an allergic reaction at all, so doubt it’s that. But, there’s definitely something in those two drinks which your upper GI tract doesn’t like.
    Of course, there’s also the reverse-placebo effect, too. I know you probably don’t want to hear that one, but it is possible. You may have to have someone help you with blind taste-tests. Which glass contains black tea, which one orange pekoe, which one Lipton tea-flavoured dust…. If you can’t pass that one, you need to seriously consider the reverse-placebo effect.
    And then, find a different addiction. Seriously. If you are having such a difficult time with those two items (or more) that you went through a gastric emptying study (you either have great insurance or money to burn) then whyever would you continue to ingest something which made you so uncomfortable? Drink Vernor’s or Hire’s if you must have a sweetened drink.
    (They used orange juice because it is highly acid and acidic foods can cause problems, and scrambled eggs because protein takes longer to fully digest, so they can see more of what goes on)

  4. What does an endoscopy reveal? With the consumption of alcohol, such as wine or beer, I experienced bloating.
    My gut wall is infected, according to an endoscopy. Swelling occurs, which is exacerbated by some goods, such as the aforementioned alcohol.
    And when that happens, along with an overly large dinner, I end up with something similar to what you described.
    The condition was cured with antibiotics and self-control not to overeat. Last month, I had a recurrence after a less-than-sanitary supper (2 other diners had bowel issues), but it wasn’t as serious as it had been, and a prescription for probiotics fixed it.
    By the way, cravings for sweet sugary drinks like Pepsi/iced tea (sweet/cold) frequently occur after eating too much sodium-rich food. You might simply drink water and eat smaller portions.
    Caffeine may be causing you problems, but you should also consider gluten intolerance (celiac) or SIBO (small intestinal bacteria overgrowth). An elimination diet may also be beneficial.

  5. Excess tea drinking, results in water retention and bloating…. If your body is unable to digest lactose, or milk sugar, the consumption of dairy products can make you feel bloated. Teas with artificial sweeteners, such as sorbitol or mannitol , may also cause gas which can lead to bloating.
