Hi and welcome,
Did you see a regular MD or a gastroenterologist? I saw so many MDs and they didn't help me at all. My stomach was is so bloated too! I know if you eat a lot of fiber it will bloat your stomach but I would really see a GI doctor. They will be able to help you. I am so sorry that you are going through this. I am also sorry to hear about your mother. If you see a GI doctor they can diagnose what is wrong and give you the proper treatment so you won't have to feel this way any longer. I went yesterday and saw one. Hope this helps some. Take care.
so firstly a big howdy ho to everyone here and its so nice to find a forum of people who know exactly how I feel-that sounds big headed doesnt it?
Last year i was told by the Dr i had PCOS, i didnt go back to the Dr's because my mum was diagnosed with cancer and i couldnt cut myself in half. This week i went back to the Dr because the pain had got worse.
For ages now i've been getting bad cramps and my belly has swollen so big and the pain is something else. I told the Doctor all this and he says it isnt the PCOS - I have IBS.
He's given me some Colpermin tablets which i've been taking for 3 days. I do feel better but i only have to eat one mouthful of food and i'm full. my belly goes down but it swells up which must mean i'm eating the wrong stuff. I feel sick all the time and i'm getting very fed up and confused about what my body is doing.
I feel like i dont want to eat anything ever again!
Please can someone help me!!!!!
