Have severe bloating problems after small or large meals, bloating located in upper portion of stomach. No other problems associated with the bloating, no weight loss,no disrespectful no other problems.I do take a fiber supplement to help with the hard stools and Bowell movement. Prior to taking fiber Bowell movements would only happen every three or four days and the stools would be very large and painful.. Just had a colon procedure with only a few small popups. Just concerned about the severe bloating

Hello, I m writing because I ve been having uncomfortable GI/digestion issues for the past 3-4 weeks. It all started after a round of antibiotics for BV, which led to a yeast infection (at which point I took flucadozole), and I have been severely bloated ever since. I take two bites and am incredibly full and my stomach is distended to the point I look 6 months pregnant by the end of the night. I ve read candida overgrowth can cause this bloating (making me think it may be related to the past yeast infection) but I can t seem to make the bloat go away with any amount of water, exercise or diet. Today I noticed that my stomach protrudes in one particular area more than the rest of the stomach. It feels and looks like a bulge halfway diagonal between my hip and belly button (so when I look down my stomach slopes downward, with the bulge protruding outwards). Could this be impacted fecal matter? Or worse? I m very about my bloating symptoms and just want to be able to eat a normal meal. Thank you for your time.

I am a 46 year old caucasian female. I weigh 125 and am 5 9 . I had one child at 40. I take 100 mcg of levothyroxine because my thyroid quit working immediately after having my daughter. I also went into menopause early and take 2mg of estradiol and 10mg of medroxypr for hormones. I had my pap a month ago and it came back clear . However, my doctor found a fibroid tumor on my uterus. An ultrasound determined it is the size of my uterus and looks as though it is attached to the uterus. I have no bleeding or cramping or pain so the game plan was to let it be until it caused me problems. Knowing that the hormones I am taking can cause it to grow, I did not want to give up my sex drive, skin condition etc. My doctor s plan is to ween me off of hormones around 50-55. That is the background and I do not know if it has anything to do with my problem. Now the problem.... I have been bloating for about 6 months, maybe longer. It started small but got progressively worse (abdomen larger). I noticed it was definitely after I had a starbucks latte but also at other times. A month ago I started the Whole30 exclusionary diet so I could figure out why I was bloating so badly (and so big). The diet removed all dairy, sugar, legumes, grains, soy. I am still bloating during the diet and removed potatoes, sweet potatoes, eggs, seltzer water and coffee on my own just trying to figure out what is making me bloat so badly. I have been true to the diet with no slips. Now I am concerned! My bloat happens usually after I eat, sometimes immediately and sometimes several hours later. I am obviously very gassy and have never had trouble with this before. I do not have insurance, so I do not want to go to 17 different doctors to try to find an answer. I do not even have a primary physician because I am never sick. I do not know where to start.....with what kind of doctor? please help Thank you for your time, Kim

Over past several months I have severe bloating especially in upper abdomen & after eating a very small amount of food. So doc took an xray & said there is large amounts of stool showing & now wants me to have an endoscopy done. I took laxatives only to be filled right back up again. It s getting hard to find a comfortable position. What could this possibly be?
