I have been experiencing some rather strange symptoms over the past few months and I was checking to see if anyone could relate to me or tell me what they think the problem is.
I gave up gluten in January to see if I would feel better, but I honestly do not. There are days when my stomach looks as if I swallowed a basketball or that I am very pregnant. I am only 4'11 and around 115 pounds. I also have severe pressure and pain when this bloating occurs. When I am not "basketball bloated" I am still constantly bloated. I have suffered from an eating disorder since I was 11 years old and I have also had my gallbladder removed in 2011, but still I am sore. I have also had pelvic pain for a solid 6 months or so. Any ideas as to what is going on?
Here is a list of most of my symptoms:
-moderate to extreme bloating
- a lot of fatigue
- pelvic pain
- digestive problems
- feeling full after just a small amount of food
- migraine headaches
- pain when pushing on my lower stomach area
- pain under my right rib cage
My first thought is constipation/blockage. This sounds serious, have you seen a Dr? How old are you?
I am 20 years old. It is not constipation however because I have been going to the bathroom 2-4 times a day lately and it there has been under-digested food in the extremely soft stool. Sorry for the details.
Details are necessary to get help, no apologies. Have you seen a Dr? My suggestion is that you see one immediately.
