I have a history of SLE, POTs and EDs type 3. When I have a flare up of my conditions, which seems to be ongoing at the moment after having sepsis.
My question is that usually my digestive tract behaves itself. However, I have had a lot of excessive abdominal bloating recently which has meant that I can't fit into any trousers other than maternity trousers.
I just seem to swell up and its so much worse when I stand.
I have had a lot of antibiotics (5 weeks).
I am taking my usual pain meds and laxido which usually take care of things. I've recently had to increase my steroids and am having usual things like cider vinegar, anti inflammatory diet (I'm very strict).
So basically I think I'm doing all the right things but my peristalsis isn't kicking along very well.
My question is, why does abdo bloating happen with EDs??
