  1. Abdominal Distention?

    Hi, I'm new to the forum and fairly new to the disease. For quite some time, the main problem I am having is with abdominal distention, like my belly sticks out, its not body fat, it fluctiates in size, and it NEVER goes away. It's not gas, it's not like normal bloating. It gets worse when I'm gassy or bloated, but it's just sort of ALWAYS like this. And it's been for almost a year I guess. It causes a lot of problems because it's uncomfortable, makes me really self consiece, and pulled out all the eating disorder tendencies I have always had and threw it full blown in my face. Mostly from this belly, but there'smore that Idon't need to get into cuz its a different topic to discuss with differnet people. The point is, is that the distension is cause so much problems for me, and no matter what I do, it doesn't go away. I haven't really been able to see a doctor because I don't have insurance, but I think I am going to see one soon. Not Specialist because iI cant affordd that, just my family doctor. But I see that as a symtpom EVERYWHERE, yet nobody I have talked to or asked about it has any idea what I'm talking about. I wanted to know if there's anyone else who experiences this, if anyone knows what it is or what causes it, or how to get rid of it? Out of ALL the symptoms, this one is the one that never goes away, and the one that Ijust can't cope with
