    Hi,  l get simular problem, as many on site do, my swelling isnt too bad, but others simular to you,  l had gastroscope and diagnosed with a bit of inflammation, acid reflux, both common causes for it, but if youve no discomfort it would be unusual. But there are many remedies, aloe vera, milk thistle, most commonly prescribed med is omprazole.  There is far more info and advice on gasritus thread, so might help if you could look in on that, but sure others will reply.

    I had bloating every day i looked pregnant and like you by morning my tummy was flat. I had an colonoscopy and found a cancerous tumour, 2 weeks later i was in hospital the removed 30cm of my large intestine,i didnt need chemo or radiation because the caught it early, which i am very happy about. I have recovered. I dont have anymore bloating now.
