I have experienced excessive bloating on and off for years. In many instances it make me feel very unwell. I take numerous medications for anxiety, depression, Type II diabetes, and SVT. The swelling in my abdomen does not hurt to the touch and usually doesn't produce any pain other than minor gas pains. The gurgling and growling sensations cause me a lot of anxiety and discomfort. I've had upper and lower scans, MRI's, and ultrasounds. All came back negative for abnormalities. I had my 4th colonoscopy approximately 8 months ago. They found 3 precancerous polyps which were removed. It was recommended that I have another a year from that time. The symptoms of my abdominal issues also leaves me with a weird sensation in my esophagus along one side. Sometimes it feels like mild indigestion. Other times it makes me cough lightly. Bowel movements vary. Sometimes loose, sometimes constipation, sometimes like oatmeal. Sometimes variation in color. Never black. Never blood. Ranging between sometimes very light yellow in appearance to brown. Varying shapes and sizes. I've been told for years that I may have IBS but have never definitively been diagnosed with such. The bloating is real. The mussel soreness and body aches are real. Sometimes it seems like I have a very low fever. So, you're wondering what is my question? Can anyone else relate to this? If so what was your diagnosis. It's been a lot of years dealing with this to varying degrees. This seems to be the worst time to date. Thank you for your input.
