Hi, I am male, 23 years old and for way over a year now I have had problems with SEVERE bloating. When I say severe, to put it into context, I am very slim and probably slightly underweight. Yet, my belly pertrudes twice as far as the rest of my body and I can barely see my feet from an upright position. The bloating doesn't go away, it's there 24/7 and I can't put any pressure on my stomach without feeling a lot of discomfort. This means I am unable to lay or sleep on my front anymore.
I have been to the doctors 6 or 7 times about this and so far I have tried...
A gastroscopy - which concluded a hiatus hernia, which apparently would not cause this amount of bloating
I have tried 3 different types of prescribed medicine designed to reduce stomach acid.
I tried changing my diet but was concerned about loosing weight so stopped when nothing was changing.
I have had a ultrasound in which nothing was found.
And many blood tests and stool samples for everything they could think of.
I do also not have IBS.
So after this I just can't seem to get rid of the bloating. If anyone has any kind of advise or help i would be most grateful
