is it bloatation or weight gain?

everytime i eat a real meal my upper rib cage gets massive and pops out like i have a beach ball in there!  it also stays that way during my period.  why am i bloating in the upper rib cage area?  most people i thought bloat in the lower stomach?  this happens whenever i eat something heavy, am constipated, or during my menstrual cycle.  it is embarassing and I cannot wear tight clothes.  my profile picis a picture of me with the bloated rib cage.  i cannot find anyone who has what I have.  please hlep !
