Constant Abdominal Bloating- Help?

Posted , 5 users are following.


For the past couple of months I've had a very bloated abdomen practically 24/7.

I originally had one doctors appointment who suggested constipation so I began to increase my fibre intake.

After a couple of weeks I still had lots of abdomen bloating so got another appointment- this time the doctor said I should reduce my fibre intake.

I'm concerned as my lower abdomen always looks swollen.

However I'm in no pain or discomfort, bowel patterns are quite normal- and both doctors checked for lumps and growths, basically then saying I'm fine.

My lower left abdomen usually sticks out more than the rest.

When I tense and feel my abs there can be some pulsating- unsure as to whether this is normal.

I know these symptoms could relate to some form of intolerance, but I eat healthily and don't consume much dairy anyway. I also exercise at least 5 days a week and drink lots of water. I'm only 20.

If anyone has had any similar experiences or could provide more insight before my third doctors appointment next week I'd appreciate it.
