O.K...I have to ask...I am sure it is nothing...but I have noticed in the last month NO matter WHAT I eat within 5 mins my stomach becomes about 2 sizes bigger than it was before I ate...
Now...the only thing I can think of is that this is my bodies way of reacting to food.....Is this assumption correct?  Is this normal? 
The ONLY time my stomach does not feel bloated and completely normal is when I wake up in the morning....and when I eat nothing....
Could this be inflammation?
Mis-diagnosed for two years--doctors thought I had RA!

Only thing that helped get rid of my bloating and severe gas was taking fibre supplements daily for the rest of my life as my GI suggested.

My bum is broken....there's a big crack down the middle of it!  LOL  :)

Lately thats how my abd is feeling, I have to wear the 2x size of jeans than my normal.  During the summer is was pretty flat, but, then again, I wasn't eating much.  I'm also trying to gain weight, but after eating literally 12 snicker ice creams bars in a week, well, it all just went to my stomach
