Help!
Everytime I eat, my stomach feels severely bloated.  I have been miserable the past 2 years.  I've had a colonoscopy, upper GI and catscan of my stomach done (all were fine).  In addition, they've run numerous blood tests and have ruled out Celiac Disease as well as other food intolerances.  We've also done a breath bacteria test.  I've tried keeping food journals and nothing works.  Almost immeidately after eating, I feel full (the after Thanksgiving Dinner full).  This happens everyday!!

I am tired of being miserable every day - this ruins my life.  I exercise reguarly and eat healthy.

Any suggestions would be much appreciated!

I forgot to mention that my bowel movements are normal and I haven't lost or gained any weight over the past year.

hi
have u really been miserable for a whole 2 years no break.
if u have and i mean  been really miserable imagine the effect that could have had on your digestive system.
1.it depends on what u are eating
2 how much u eat at the one sit
3 how much u are drinking with your meal
4 how quickely are u eating your food
5 are u eating when stressed
6 do u relax after your meals
eat fruit in between meals rather than with a meal
some of these above will cause anybody to feel full fast
ok u have not loss or gained ant weight so your body is digesting to some degree
have u tried smaller meals like instead of 3 main meals break that up to 6 smaller ones
u could also try digestive enzymes before ot taken with a meal and this may help.
some people just empty there food slower than others and that can be a symptom in ibs as in your food leaves your tummy at a slower rate.peppermint is good for this and can be taken as tea.

Although what you eat and drink etc matter, what you eat and drink could be the whole cause of your problem. There are many websites on specific foods to stay away from ie. fatty foods, coffee, sugar, alcohol, beef, nuts.........

If I were you I would read up on these foods you should be eating then allow a few weeks for your symtoms to completely subside.

Good Luck

Thanks.

I think I've been misdiagnosed all along.  For the past week, I've eaten a gluten free diet and it has seemed to work.  As a marathon runner, this has been a struggle as I love pasta.  I'm already learning how to cook with rice flour and how to use other substitutes.  I go back to my gastroenterologist at the end of the month and we'll see what he says.  Blood tests say that I'm not gluten intolerant, but my stomach has been feeling a lot better since I've changed my diet.
