does anyone know how to treat this bloating?
I am too stopped taking SSRI pills cold turkey, and immediately experienced severe bloating- which have only gotten worse over the years. The thing is, I took those pills for only 5 or 6 weeks, and now 4 years have passed since I stopped taking them and my symptoms are getting worse. I cannot eat because of the bloating and I am now underweight. I have done many tests- colonoscopy, gastroscopy, some hormonal tests, breath testing, allergies and many more.. The docs only discovered that I have an allergy for fructose (which I am sure I did not have before taking the pills, as I used to eat lots of fruits with no physical inconvenience).
I tried have infinite types of diets but noting works.
I am really desperate and getting back on the drugs is not an option, as in addition to the bloating (and other "less" disturbing physical symptoms- such as clogged ears, constant mucus, fatigue and more..) they actually caused me to suffer from panic attacks and OCD- both of which symptoms were none of my innitial emotional problems- I took the pills only to relief a very minor stress that I experienced at the time.
Does anyone know how to solve this bloating problem? I just want to add that I'm constantly bloated (even if I don't eating anything), but after eating and drinking (even just water) the bloating gets worse and painful. Alternative treatments as well as conventional (antibiotics, probiotics, supplements..) did not help.
I would really appriciate any help!!
