| | Bloating on empty stomach - no gas
For the past 8 years I have had a nearly constant feeling of very uncomfortable bloating in my abdomen. It is driving me crazy! What I eat has some effect on it, and so I tend to go hungry rather than add to the misery. I have regular bowel movements, no diarrhea, and very little gas.
I have had a gastroenterologist do a thorough physical and one of those barium scans. Everything looks normal. He says that I may have a "hypersensitive" gut, in which the nerves overreact to any stimuli.
Does anyone have any other ideas about what heck is wrong with me? Is this the same thing as IBS? What should/can I do?
Thanks very much!
