Hello,

Without examination,it is very difficult to confirm a diagnosis,but the various possibilities are stress and anxiety,hypothyroidism,cushing’s disease,PCOS,ovarian tumors and systemic diseases of kidneys or liver.

I sincerely advise you to consult a physician and discuss these possibilities with him.An ultrasound and CT abdomen and blood tests for thyroid profile,hormone levels and kidney and liver function tests may be required to confirm the diagnosis.

Hope it helps.Take care and pls do keep me posted on how you are doing or if you have any additional queries.Kind regards.

Wow!  Thank you so much for your response to ivoryangel.

I've been experiencing similar problems.  I've even been to Temple for days of studies without find what is really causing the bloated stomach.  It came on suddenly about a year ago.  I've written your suggestion down to ask my doctor if we've tried your suggestions yet.  I have gone up four sizes...doesn't matter how little I eat or what I eat.
