I've never felt like a stuffed turkey except for an hour or so, atleast not as bad as this.  Lately I feel like this all the time.  I wish it would leave.   There is no pain,  only a pressure and fullness feeling in the mid abdomen with an occassional flip flop).   I find I can't breathe properly and feel the stuffed feeling coming from my lower to mid abdomen.    I'm worried what could be wrong with me?

Have you had issues with strictures? I had reallly bad strictures, and would bloat out to the point that people would ask me "how far along" I was... I looked about 140 when I was only 120, and felt like someone had just inflated me.
Diagnosed at 17, currently 23 :)  Have had 1 resection so far.  It's been an adventure!

Could possibly be a bacterial overgrowth also. I get like that right after eating and will bloat up and it will cause my sides to hurt from the pressure. A 10 day course of Cipro and a better probiotic fixed that right up. I would call your GI and discuss this. Hugs!

I am terribly bloated too and I can't stand it right now. I just went back on Entocort for a month and hope it goes away when I get off!
