Sorry for a very late reply.

Bloating does not always sound disease. It can be related to food change or the physiological response to the circumstances that we have around.

I have noted all the details. I find that you have a very nutritious diet and apt for blood pressure. However the carbohydrate is complex and slightly heavy. Vegetable, rice etc are carbo XXXXXXX The digestion of this could be difficult and thus cause bloating. Speak to a dietitian who can figure DASH diet ( for high blood pressure).

The other reason could be increased adrenaline secretion that moves the food slow in the intestine. This could be because of slightly raised stress levels at work or at home.

Fibroids has possibly no relation here unless realing big pressing on the stomach. I am not sure if you have medications for blood pressure as well. Some medications cause bloating.

Hope this work helps you.
