Hey - It my first time posting online about this.
Basically I have severe bloating of my abdomen daily.
When I get up in the morning I am fine. But I soon become bloated during the day my waist increases 5-6 inchs. By the end of the day I am fully bloated and almost look pregnant.
I'm a 28 year old male who exercises regularly and eats very healthy.
I have had the following tests done.
CT Scan - Some swollen nodes less than 1 cm, Colon slightly thickened walls but Colonscopy was fine.
Barium Swallow - All fine
Blood Tests : High Albumin, MCHC, Haemologbin, Free T3
Glucose Level was 4.8 non fasting.
Fructose and Lactulose breath test : Tested Positive for both and told be I had SIBO.
I went on Xifaxan for two weeks at 1200mg, this made my bloating worse while I was on the drug.
Anti-Acid have not assisted in decreasing the bloating. I had been proscribed Omeprazole.
Strangely if I go out and have a few drinks (Alcoholic) the next day I will be fine and my stomach will not bloat up.
Also I had the common cold for 2 days and my stomach also did not bloat. Therefore during these events is one of my organs overproducing something it normally wouldn’t?
My bloating has now been going on for 2 years and it’s very distressing. If you have any knowledge on this I would be happy to know. Thanks
