is there anything that will make the constant bloating go away? 24/7 I have to hold in my stomach and I'm in shape,not over weight, and have good stomach tone. ON the beach when I'm laying flat it looks like something is crawling around in there. It never goes away no matter what I eat, and I follow gluten free pretty good. When I eat gluten my face swells up and my nose closes. help! I'm sick of looking preg.

Maybe some other food is bothering you? I'm pretty thin/fit myself, but I get bad stomach bloat if I eat dairy or corn products.

I tried cutting out dairy, I tried just rice, taking my vitamins out of there capsules, cutting out soy, It never changes, even if I dont eat at all. I went to the doctor and they just say IBS, everything is IBS to them. He tested for Celiac but is was already off gluten,os of coarse it was neg. but I cant eat the stuff. I need a new doctor.

You may want to trydigestive enzymes? You can buy them over the counter. They help break your food down so your digestive system doesn't have to struggle.

If you're not taking probiotics daily, start taking them.

It might be a good idea for you to keep a food log? Note any symptoms, like bloating, excess gas,excitability, drowsiness, whatever. Many of us find that we have to stop dairy for a while, and some have secondary food intolerances. The food log helps you put the puzzle together.

I second this. A food log has been a lifesaver for me. Without one, it's hard to see what you are reacting to. This will also allow you to conduct 'experiments' in a more controlled fashion. For example you can take out a food type for a week or two and then reintroduce it for a couple of days and see if you notice any changes, while keeping everything else the same.

Don't not eat! Not eating causes bloating as well. I know exactly what you are going through, I have the same problems. I am still trying to figure it out by eliminating foods. And as long as I stick to it I am starting to see a difference. I have eliminated gluten, dairy, corn (including anything that contains corn syrup), and most recently, nightshades (which was a big one! I don't know how I didnt notice this one before). I'm sure you have heard this one before but drink lots of water, even if you feel bloated. You need water to help digest everything. I also drink peppermint herbal tea. And I just recently read that ginger tea is good as well for digestive problems so I just picked some up but have not tried it yet.

Everything was bloating me so I am trying to just eat fresh meat (Bartfull sugested it) I think I'm feeling a dif. Have to wait to be sure. Fresh meat, fresh veg. and fruit. That way I'm eliminating all and starting from scratch. I'll try the ginger tea, Thanks

I had a mild amount of bloating that remained after going gluten free. However, after it was clear that I'm corn intolerant too, I stopped eating corn too. I didn't expect it, but that last little bit of bloating has gone away. I also didn't know that I had IBS. So I agree with the other posters, you probably need to check into other intolerances.

sorry for jumping in here, but are digestive enzymes okay to take with probiotics? i'm the same way, bloated a lot and the probiotics helped a bunch to help me go, but the idea of digestive enzymes interests me. any idea if the two together are okay to take?
