I am new to this site and was wondering if anyone here could offer some suggestions for extreme bloating. I have been suffering from this for a while now and pretty much have diagnosed myself with IBS and a horrible digestive system. I am 21 years old and in general like the way i look expect for the fact that I am bloated 24/7. I went to the doctor and she did an ultrasound and an X-ray, but found nothing. I take Metamucil everyday, eat fairly healthy and high in fibre foods and have been exercising. The doctor even suggested taking Senacot a natural laxative for seven days, besides losing a few pounds the bloating did not really subside. Sometimes it is so bad that when i wake up in the morning my stomach sticks out so far, it looks like I'm 6 months pregnant, it makes me feel horrible about myself and makes me not want to eat which I know won't help anything. If anyone has any advice on what i could do i would appreciate it a lot. Thanks!
