I've been dealing with this for a while now and it just keeps getting worse. My bloating is very, very extreme. How extreme? Well I am by no means fat, but due to my terrible bloating I have to wear pants with a size 33 or usually 34 waist even though my waist is actually only 29 or 30 inches minus the bloating. I'm 5'9" and about 180 pounds so 3-5 inches of bloating is rather severe, no?
While I'm happy that the following is true, it's still very, very frustrating: I had an endoscopy done and nothing was found and my gastroenterologist and another doctor both said I wasn't allergic to any foods either.
I'm really confused. It is never painful though, so that's a very good thing. I do pass gas a lot though. But in general, it just feels like there's an inflated balloon in my stomach! My belly really juts out!
I try to eat somewhat healthy but I do eat BS foods too. For example, I love to eat almonds, sandwiches on whole wheat bread and apples, but I do still eat pizza and fast food from time to time. Although my diet doesn't seem to matter too much. I feel bloated all the same either way. I really don't eat vegetables at all however the almonds and apples do give me a lot of fiber right?
Might I be deficient in a certain vitamin? I really need help since the doctors say I'm apparently fine!
