For the past 6 years I've had the most TERRIBLE trapped gas and bloating every day. I'm bloated no matter what I eat or what medication I take. I think the problem is I rarely pass gas. I might fart once a day if I'm lucky!
When I press on my stomach it feels hard and I can feel big "bubbles" of air inside of me. I've taken all the gas-x, charcoal, ginger tea and simenthicone a girl can find and it doesn't provide any real relief. I've even had an abdominal ultrasound and the nurse said she couldn't see my organs from too much air in my abdomen...
It may seem like a small problem but the pressure and pain causes so many problems in my life. The constant pressure from the gas causes my heart to race and skip beats which is a whole other issue on its own.
After many tests my doctor cannot find a cause and just labeled it as irritable bowel. But I don't have any other ibs symptoms, only the bloating! And even when I ate the special FODMAP diet it didn't make a difference at all.
Someone please give me any remedies you know of for this problem. Or any possible disorders you know of that could cause gas and bloating for years and years on end. I don't want to deal with this forever.
