Alexxx-Returns Posted October 15, 2015 Share Posted October 15, 2015 So for as long as I've cared to notice (that is, I NOTICED this happening when I was 19 (I'm 23 now), because I started actually noticing how disgusting my body was, but for all I know it could've been happening for much longer), I bloat up like a fucking zeppelin whenever I eat.This used to be so bad that I'd bloat to twice my waist size after just my morning cup of tea, but nowadays I think I can manage small amounts of food and drink without it being so bad. But I still generally bloat up to twice my waist size usually. The more I eat, the bigger it gets. The only way to stop this? Just not eat, period. And that's not really a good preventative measure in the long term because 1: people need food, and 2: it's pretty unreliable if I wanna NOT look like I'm pregnant on a specific day.I know people often bloat but I think I have it pretty bad. How many people do you see going round with a massive pregnancy-style belly who are also slim? It's just not normal. Besides, it REALLY fucking gets me down because it makes me feel fat (even though I'm not), and if you're fat, fair do's you can lose weight. There's NOTHING I can do about this when it happens aside from waiting until the next day or 2 when it goes down. I tried antigas tablets but somehow they make it WORSE.Here's quite a good picture of how they normally get. I'd been out to eat at a restaurant before this was taken. https://scontent-lhr3-1.xx.fbcdn.net/hphotos-xat1/v/t1.0-9/15906_10205885219942300_5896940924747375986_n.jpg?oh=16a4de6fc0b7a00cdb836803bb49a003&oe=56C95FC6I don't know what medical grounds this could be on, if any. I thought for a bit that it might be IBS, but I only have 2 other symptoms of that (the abdominal pain (clearly because of the bloating) and the pain during sex/foreplay) but nothing else sprung to mind. I feel like there COULD be a reason for this, and I'd love nothing more than to find out so I can get it treated/learn how to manage it.Buuuuuuuut I don't know if I SHOULD go to the GP because "mah belly got big". I mean, there are people with cancer and stuff, and there's me whining about my food babies. But I just want to know what the hell is going on.
