Hi Everyone,
I just have a kinda silly question. Does anyone else have daily bloating? I know a lot of people have bloating when they are having an "attack" but I wake up and I am my normal size and as soon as I have breakfast its like I balloon up. Is there anything I can do to make it go away or at least minimize it?

P.S. For cramps I just went to the Doc. and she prescribed this stuff called Buscopan. It apparently takes the pain away, I haven't tried it yet but I was thinking if anyone else is trying to find something to take the pains away, maybe mention that to the Doc.

Hi CiCi,
Yes, daily bloating here. I try to drink mint or fennel tea everyday. I also take Gas-X and Beano - they are really helpful.

I bloat every time I eat. I have actually measured my waist and grow 3 inches !!! I do seem to go through periods of time that aren't as bad and have no idea what causes or cures this. Anyone else have any suggestions?
Take care, Softy

My GI told me that when you're having troubles with bloating it's a typical sign of not enough fibre in your diet and says that taking a fibre supplement is a good idea, especially for any IBD/IBSer...after slowly adding fibre to your diet you may still notice bloating and even gas, which is normal, your body just needs time to adjust and it will, took me 3 months and all my previous bloating and gas subsided...fibre helps sweep the colon clean of bacteria which is usually the culprit behind bloating and gas...and not having enough fibre in your system.

take care

Thanks for the suggestions everyone! I find that as soon as I eat I bloat up or even when I don't eat occasionally it happens! Its so annoying! Like I've said before I wake up my normal size and then by the time I go to bed some days I am way bigger. It is so annoying!
