Culture Like For Bloating?

Recommended Posts

I've been gluten free for about 6 months now and my symptoms have improved a lot. However every now and then I experience severe bloating and my stomach is visibly distended. I look 6 months pregnant! Not to mention its hard and very uncomfortable. I've been having one of my bloating episodes for a week now with no relief in sight. Also my joint pain has worsened and I've been having "foggy brain" and can't seem to focus. I've been taking Schiff digestive advantage probiotics for about a month now. And I don't think I could have been glutened cause I eat and prepare all my meals on my own at home. I've heard that culturelle is supposed to be a good probiotic and I'm thinking maybe I should switch. Does anyone have any thoughts? I'm very uncomfortable and I'm having trouble finding clothes to wear to hide my distended stomach. I don't know what else to do. Any advise would be greatly appreciated !

I'm thinking you might have another food intolerance or you are getting cc'd somewhere.

I am currently suffering bloat from another intolerance!  My family can see by tummy is bigger than usual.  I used to live like this.  I have figured this one out, I have a BIG problem with pumpkin.  My problems began after harvesting the garden.

 

A rotational diet has been helping me to figure out my mysterious bloating.  With my 4 day plan I do not repeat food families, but for once every 4 days.  When the current crises began with cramping, I was just biting into pumpkin bread.  I had suffered earlier in the week with bloating and cramping.  I looked back and recalled that I was well Sunday and Monday until dinner.  At dinner I had pumpkin.  A couple months of bloating solved.

 

I recommend the rotational diet to help look for other intolerances.  I have a plan of what to eat for a month.  This gives me ability to figure out what I have eaten 4 days back, 8 days back, and just whenever I need to know.  I just need to keep better track of when mysterious bloatings appear.  An alternative would be a food and symptoms diary.
