i have a huge problem i really need help. this EXTREME BLOATING is making me feel so ugly fat depressed uncomfrotablr
i am 23 year old female. i am normally very healthy and i prided myself on my body and my stomach ecpecially. i am 5"9 and 125lbs. it was really all i had going for me my flat perfect stomach to hide my insecurities of my acne and A cup chest.
ok so about 3 months ago in june i started getting bloated after eating anything even something small like a banana. i mean extremely bloated like pregnant looking. this happened on and off for the first month then the last 2 months its gotton worse and worse. now i am always bloated no matter what! i even went 3 days eating basically nothing and i was still bloated.
i feel absolutly horrible i am depressed and hopeless and feel as if i have lost the only thing in life i prided myself on.
i was taking Welbutrin but i stopped thinking maybe it was from that. i was also on prednisone because my fingers knees and ankles often swell they dont know why because i tested negative to arthritis but still has the symptoms. and started taking it around the time the bloating started. i stopped taking prednisone about 2 weeks ago and nothing has changed in my bloating. so i dont know and i doubt the welbutrin or prednisone are the culprit.
it:s not celiac's disease i was tested for that.
i need help no one will help me everyone thinks im crazy for freaking out so much but i look so fat and unattraxctive one girl even asked if i was pregnant. it doesnt matter what i eat or drink or how much i just get really really bloated after and now i am bloated all the time.
