I am suffering from severe bloatedness on a daily basis. any treatment for this

I suffer from severe bloatedness on a daily basis some days are worse then others. I go to sleep bloated and wake up bloated. I have tightness lower abdomen which goes hand in hand with this swelling. I have been like this for the last 7 months or so and have been to the doctors and prescribed this that and the other and quite frankly I have no faith in them. Tried meds and natural herbs, acupuncture , manuka honey, etc etc etc and NOTHING HELPS. One thing I am grateful for is that I am in no pain just total discomfort and somehow have gained a lot in weight. This also affects my energy levels. The other worrying issue is that all this affects my neck - I have these lumps left side of my neck that seem to come and then disappear later on in the day when the bloatedness eases off a bit - not a nice feeling - my face also seems to swell as well so I guess it all goes hand in hand. I am 53 and weight is 80 kg. My weight has skyrocketed since I have been suffering with this bloatedness. I have been told its due to gas but I do not have flatulence. Real desperate for help. Thanks

THE ONLY ANSWER FOR ALMOST ALL YOUR PROBLEMS IS EXERCISE. IT WILL REDUCE YOUR WEIGHT , RAISE YOUR ENERGY LEVEL BY RELEASING ENDORPHINE , AND WILL HELP TO IMPROVE MOTILITY OF YOUR DIGESTIVE SYSTEM THEREBY REDUCING YOUR BLOATEDNESS. IN MORNING AEROBIC EXERCISE UNDER GUIDANCE OF PROFESSONALS AND IN EVENING WALKING FOR HALF AN HOUR IS ALL THAT IS REQUIRED FOR YOU.

Hi,
From your symptoms it requires following investigations,
Routine urine and blood check up,
Ultra sound of kidney,liver,intestine,prostate,
You have 80 kg wt,which is high so there may be fat collection in the abdomen may give rise to this sensation.
Swelling of face indicates some thing wrong in kidney.
We should rule out possibility of Cirrhosis of liver and enlarge prostate.
So by above mentioned tests we can some clue about your problem.

Hello, my name is Zack.I am a 29 yr old gay male in san Antonio tx. I have been exposed to what I believe is herpes, but there are just some symptoms involving my fiancee that is putting a lot of things into question. I was having unprotected sex before we met. Not on a daily basis and not every partner was unprotected, though it s no relief or excuse. I myself had not noticed any symptoms except for diarrhea and a smelly discharge from my anus, which I honestly chalked up to be poor diet complications for the most part. My fiancee and I had discussed our sexual past and i wasn t completely honest with him, however he was terrified of contracting hiv and I had just had a hospital visit where they regularly test all patients with bloodwork for hiv. So with that in mind, and in my ignorance, I thought I was in the clear for any other stds. I didn t understand why they d test for hiv but nothing else. However my visit was not for anything related to an std. I had tonsilittis. When i came clean about having unprotected sex, we immediately went and got tested for hiv, and came back negative on both behalves. We were relieved and continued with our relationship even stronger and regularly had unprotected sex. A few months later we started having trust issues and he began questioning whether I have been faithful to him. I have not been sexually or even slightly physical with another person outside of a hug since we ve been together, and we ve been back and forth about this for awhile. In the midst of our arguments about whether I ve been faithful, he started breaking out in sores and lesions ranging in size and severity on his penis, and eventually on his hands and face, and one on his anus. He regularly has stomach problems, and says that his sores (and there s a lot at times) are extremely painful. These sudden symptoms have strengthened his conviction against me, and leaving me next to defenseless to justify anything. I m suffering from anxiety and depression, mostly because of this argument, and most people have told me to leave him. But I m determined to prove my innocence, and this would be a great start. He tells me that I m a carrier and that s why I don t show typical symptoms, and he s convinced that there s no way I could have contracted something before we got together, and it took (roughly) 6 months before he had started showing noticeable symptoms. I have neglected going to get tested for the sheer fact that I beleove I m positive for herpes, however I fear a free testing clinic would not be able to determine how long I ve had the virus, or provide us with enough information to even give me a chance to prove that I ve had this before him. I know I shouldnt have lied about my sexual past to him, and I am responsible for this debate entirely. Please help.

would it be prudent to test liver function (blood test) -- given Lipase has been trending upwards (just above normal) Amylase trending lower (although in range), vitamin D -- low requested to take supplements, and EUS performed was normal. I m thinking these results could be related to liver, am I on the right track?
