You need to see a gastroenterologist. A distended colon can cause very serious problems. At least, you are able to explain what problems you have and find the answers. Unfortunately for me, my autistic 16-year-old son was not able to tell me that he was in pain and the distended colon was the cause of his death. The Medical Examiner told me that the distended colon causes many SEVERE problems...one of which is breathing. In my son's case, the distended colon caused him to have problems breathing which went into a cardiac arrhythmia (the cause of his death) and ended with a seizure due to his body shutting down. Do not take this problem lightly. I wish you all the best.
