Bloating/gas Without Gluten?!?

What else could be causing this? Going dairy free hasn't helped. As well as soy free. Ugh. HELP!

If you don't think you've developed food intolerances/allergies (mine are odd like mushrooms and garlic), then not to alarm you, but have you checked out symptoms for Ovarian Cancer? Abdominal bloating and gas are the main symptoms. Chances are you don't have it, but it's best to play it safe.

Hi there, I have had the same problem myself. At first I thought it was because of Lactose so I to cut out the diary but the wind and bloating did not go away. I have had all the tests and everything is ok, they think I have IBS due to stress.
Are you stressed? Perhaps it could be IBS. I am currently following a low fat diet, which has really helped. Try Fennel Tea also.
At this stage to suggest you might have a cancer without any tests (as the poster above mentions) is a bit much.
Get tested though, you never know.

Same thing happened to me awhile back - after supplementing digestive enzymes and HCl with every protein filled meal (I'm mostly Paleo, so protein is with almost every meal), my symptoms subsided. Only time I really have trouble now is when I go a little overboard with carbs or with dairy....or if I'm in PMS week - can't figure out how to get rid of the bloat during PMS week, but hey, at least I know what it is right? Look at the symptoms of low stomach acid and see if they meet what you're going through. Stuff saved me from a lot of pain and suffering.

If it is from your food you can try to figure it out with elimination/challenge diets. Try to keep your diet simple. Change one thing per week. It can take that long to notice a difference. Keep track of your symptoms. You have the option of eating more to see if your symptoms worsen, or eliminating to see if your symptoms improve. That is about the only way I have to figure out what I can eat safely.
I agree that it is important to go to the doctor to check for other more serious causes.
I hope you feel better soon.
