I've had this problem before and it lasted for 8 months. It did not feel like gas at all. I even went to U of M Hospital to a specialist to see what the problem could be. They told me it was trapped gas. It didn't even hurt like gas, just bloated and very uncomfortable. I did a colon cleanse and it did get better but it took 2 months. Now I have bloating again with upper abdominal pain and I don't have much of an appetite. I just had a scope (EDG) and a CT Scan. I do not know the results of the CT Scan yet but the EDG didn't show anything. I look like I'm 5 or 6 months pregnant. I'm 51 and have Hypothyroidism, Diabetes, GERD, Asthma, CAD. I've had a total hysterectomy. I'm really tired of getting this and no one seems to know what is causing it. I feel miserable. Does anyone else have any idea what this could be?
