does anyone here ever get or have had for a long period of time that puffy/hard belly??? i just want to know if it ever goes away for awhile or if it's just like this cuz im getting over my first flare up...im in the stage right now where i cant really poop at all..and eating is a pain in the ass...i get so tired after i eat..i eat too much cuz i think im starving (which i am) and then regret it when it just ends up sitting there making more poop and getting stuck, and then i get so nauseaus...it sucks :(...my belly is so hard and bloated...i just want it to go away! i dont even weigh alot! but my belly is just so hugeeeeeeee...does it go away ever???????

when I went to MAYO they said that it was to much bacterial overgrowth, thats what causes it at least for me. when I eat the bacteria causes gas and thats what puffs your belly up. And it does depend on what I eat to. rolleyes
