Hi ladies, I was wondering what experience you had with bloating?
Where abouts in your abdomen did you feel bloated?
And was it persistent? If so (or not) did it get even worse with food and drink intake at all?
I have persistent bloating but it is made even worse when eating - nausea and burping. And this has been going on for a long time now. I have a Doctors appointment on Thursday and I'm nervous about being told it is just gastro problems when it doesn't feel that way. I have this feeling of pressure in my abdomen which is not the same but reminiscent of when I had gallbladder problems before I had it taken out.
I only eat really small portions before I am extremely full and uncomfortable, I feel like a balloon. When I press my abdomen it is so uncomfortable - is that normal? I have back pain but it's localised to a spot in my middle back on the right hand side, just under my rib cage at the back. I don't think this counts as lower back pain. I also have a lot of more general back pain and neck pain when I do activities like cooking or walking. I'm very tired about 2/3rds of the time. I have been on a diet for 2 years now at least and feel like I am only gaining weight if anything. I genuinely eat about 1200 calories a day. I have had my thyroid checked but they only checked one of the hormones rather than all 3. I have stabbing pains in my abdomen regularly and pain with BMs. I am worried it is something sinister like ovarian cancer or endometriosis and once you start thinking it you can't stop! But my greatest worry in the next few days is that I won't be taken seriously at the Doctors as I am only 26.
Thanks so much for your answers!
