Please Help.....bloated

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone, I am in need of some advise. I have been bloated for probably 3 weeks now. I am really watching what I eat and I even go without eating just to see if I can get this feeling to go away. I could use some ideas of maybe why but for sure how to get rid of this pregnant feeling. :huh::(

Can you tell us what you are eating?

Are you eating gluten free?

If so, how long have you been gluten free?

Any possibility of cross contamination?

Any other food intolerances? Perhaps one surfaced?

I have been gluten free for 5 years now. I am real careful about CC but it could always happen. The only other this I can think of is a lot of fresh fruits and vegetables.

Are you eating anything which contains soy? Soy can cause big bloat problems.

Hi Crissy, good to see you back (I think :rolleyes: )

Some veggies are known to cause gas. Cabbage for one comes to mind. Maybe going for a bland diet...banana's, apple sauce, rice to get your tummy settled.

Then try to bring one veggie in at a time

I couldn't help but check your age. It might be menopause. I'm no expert on menopause at all (I'm too young, although I swear I would get hot flashes, along with cold flashes, when I was eating gluten and dairy), but I do know that hormonal changes can cause all sorts of stuff to happen.

Now I suspect that I've been a celiac for around 12 years, but about 6 years ago, when I tried birth control pills for the first time, (ie: hormonal changes), I got seriously bloated. It got better probably 50% better when I quit the pills, although it didn't go away completely. Of course, birth control pills are designed to mimic pregnancy.

Not everything is diet related though. If you haven't eaten anything weird or different from your norm, and especially if not eating isn't making it go away, I'd be looking for other reasons for it. A trip to the doctor might be in order.
