About two months ago, I started getting bloated..not occasionally but literally all day. I wake up looking like I swallowed a beach ball and I go to bed the same way. It doesn't go down. I've been to the doctor, twice, but all they said is that it's unlikely to be anything serious since I'm only 30, and it's probably something I'm eating. I've tried telling them it's like it all the time, so it doesn't seem to be in response to a particular food/drink, and that I'm already on a gluten free, dairy free, alcohol free diet. I'm also vegetarian. There's not much left to cut out!!! I can't get anyone to take it seriously. They insist it's IBS/food intolerance. I did have IBS many years ago, but I wasn't bloated all the time with it and it went away about 6 years ago.
So, I guess what I'm asking is whether my symptoms are typical of IBS? I don't have pain, diarrhoea or what I would call constipation. I do suffer gas but I always have done so there's been no obvious change. It's literally just bad bloating. Should I try to push it further with my doctor??
