Excessive Bloating 14 months Later

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

Hello all, 

So I've been 110% gluten free for a full year (some mistakes first two months) and not much has changed for me. I just has another endoscopy which confirmed that I am basically fully healed... but I still have the same symptoms as a year ago. These are mostly bloating, fatigue, and brain fog. I also have really crackly joints and excessive sports injuries (went from college runner to barely exercising as I'll end up making my injuries worse). The bloating is way worse when I eat too many carbohydrates, that usually ranges from mild to extreme. Some days I have to go lay down. Everything seems to be getting worse lately and I see no help coming from my current doctors. I also have this numb pain/rock feeling/tingling in the lower left part of my abdomen that comes and goes. I am positive it is not gluten exposure. 

I am a 26 yo male. I should note that I had a positive breathe test two years ago but all Small intestinal bacterial overgrowth (SIBO) treatments have not worked. Candida treatment did not work. FODMAP diet showed I am sensitive to fructose and I generally can't handlea carbohydrates very well. (can't eat most fruits). I am finishing up the Autoimmune protocol diet (AIP) where I've discovered a handful of foods to avoid but they don't affect the bloating. I've done everything by the book and more. The only thing I have going for me is that my gastro. said that you should have seen something over the past year and acknowledges I definitely have another issue. 

Anyone know why I have this extreme bloating? It has made the last year of my life almost impossible and I just barely get by most days even though I am "healed" in terms of testing.

probably the SIBO..  it causes bloating..  did you antibiotics?

hydrogen-predominant SIBO: The primary treatment is the antibiotic rifaximin. methane-predominant SIBO: This type of SIBO is harder to treat, and it may take longer to respond to treatment. We use rifaximin plus neomycin for these cases.

 

 

Try eating nothing but fresh meat, fish, salt, and water for a while and see... nothing else

Is it possible that you are getting too much fiber? This can cause bloating. Cutting out sugar is very important when dealing with SIBO. Cutting carbs and going more paleo is a good idea, and be sure your diet is 100% gluten-free.
