Hiya, new to this forum but I’m fed up and no doctors have any helpful advice. I am a 21 year old and have always had IBS, I have tried every special diet and seen every dietician there is. I am on Movicole laxatives everyday.
Basically as soon as I get up from the minute I drink anything (even if I eat nothing), I begin to bloat up. If I drink a glass of water it is instantly noticeable. If I drink no water and dehydrate myself my bloating is very minimal, however this leaves me with migraines and is not a solution. Food seems to barely affect it. No doctor believes me when I say this it is incredibly infuriating. I swallow so much gas I am constantly suffering with trapped wind, spasms, and major massive bloating (people mistaken me for being pregnant).
Drinking from the CamelBak eddy bottle with the bite valve lid seems to limit air being swallowed as much as possible however I am still completely fed up. I want to live a healthy fit lifestyle yet I can’t ever wear anything tight and am permanently embarrassed of my body no matter physically fit I am.
Sorry for the ramble. Really really hope someone knows what I’m talking about.
Thanks if anyone does
