horrible bloated feeling

today my stomach feels really bloated. im sure its getting bigger! starting to wonder if something else is going on. feels a bit solid to the touch.

ive been on pregab now for 5 wks and my weight keeps going up and my stomach seems to b getting bigger. anyone else have the same? i need to get the weight off but nothing seems to b working!

HI all,

many tnx for your words, i may see if there is an allergy going on along with the ibs, i hve always had bowel troubles, and yes bread does bloat me, so try to limit it. not sure what next gp could prescribe, have so far had duloxetine, gabapentin, and now pregab!

hugs to all xx
