A few of the symptoms discussed in this thread could be possible signs if insulinoma, such as the unexplained weight gain and fatigue. Maybe not so much the bloating though. If you hold a healthy diet and still lack of energy and always feel like your blood sugar is low you might want to look this up. Insuliomas are (in most cases) non cancerous tumors on the pancreas. It causes a high production of insulin which can lead to hunger feelings, fatigue, dizziness, nausea and hyperglycemia. Your brain does not get enough energy even though your body gets enough nutritions... If you ever have suspected diabetes but gotten negative results this might be the next step. Might not help so many of you with the gas and bloating problem primarily, but I thought is was worth mentioning for us who struggle with unexplainable weight gain despite our healthy life style.

As for gas, bloating, digestive, fatigue and weight gain problems;
All of you who has not already done this should take a proper food intolerance blood test. Many of the symptom you have mentioned sound like food allergies! And if not an allergy you might be intolerant. It is important to know the differences between an alleric reaction and a reaction from a food intolerance. Even if weath, dairy, soy and egg might be some of the most common 'bad guys' your reaction might be caused of a food you would never think of. An ELISA test can, from what I understand, check your blood for over 100 different nutritions at the same time. Google it and you may see for yourself.

I read "skullcat" and can definitely see myself - the only thing is that I am now 55 going 56 and have no periods any more. The rest is me alright. Have you had any change since this post? I am eager to find out what is going on as doctors just say IBS but they also say that IBS is the name used when they don't know what the problem is. I am quite fed up as my life has no joy from morning to night and not much respite at night either as I cannot sleep. Each time I turn the pain wakes me up and I am absolutely down.

It is definitely a good idea for all of us to start noting any similarities.

i think may be its helpful for you that I also had a similar problem, went to the doc and got xrays. It showed I have a huge gas bubble in my large intestine with no blockage though. I am regular and the problem happened overnight. The docs had no explination for what the cause was. I got prescribed Reglan and it has slowly (over 4 days) began helping. Hope this is helpful.

I have been reading the posts here with great interest. I am a nutritional therapist and as part of my practice I test people for food intolerances.

Here are a couple of suggestions that have helped a lot of my clients who were suffering from bloating after eating.

There are many foods that will cause bloating but the most common one is cow's milk. For some people it's the lactose, for some it's the milk protein and for others it's both. To eliminate completely you need to avoid anything that's made with milk or a derivative of milk: lactose, lactic acid, whey, casein, caseinate. It can be in virtually anything and if you're sensitive even the smallest amount can cause a problem so in order to do an elimination properly you need to scrutinize labels.

For some people eating too quickly is the single reason why they bloat after eating. I have written an article on the importance of chewing and how it relates to stomach bloating. You will find it at justvitaminc.blogspot.co.uk/2011/01/how-to-reduce-bloating-in-one-small.html

I hope this helps.

Hi all,
I'm a new shy member :-)
but absolutely, I'm a very lucky one !!!!
I have blaoting issues since I got married 2 years ago
ofcourse it made me gain 38 pounds since then and my stomach / belly is blaoting extremely althought I started working out and kinda cutting candies and junk food !!
Recently, it is even growing worse than ever and I can feel it swelling, hard and hurting

I no more can wear my rings, bracelets, shoes and clothes and my face is a round loaf of bread .. the strange thing is that the bloating is not just during ovulation or period .. it's ALWAYS !!!

and
Whenever I go to doctors "with all my respect" they just charge you alot and cost you labs and then tell you "There's nothing wrong with you clinically ... maybe you just need to just accept it and find peace with yourself"

Come on !!!
it never goes standstill ... it always gets worse !!!!!!!
I'm 34 and I'm trying to conceive ... But deep inside me I'm really scared about what might happen to me if I don't fix it before I get pregnant .. I would explode probably !!! OMG
I'm glad to read the many useful tips many of you shared.

SterlingBlueEyes
I believe I might have a problem of Milk intolerance but although I don't take it seriously but I keep consuming my favorate ALMOND CHESSE .. I get it from Mother's market and it tastes REALLY GREAT like any other cheese

Does anyone have similar symptomps like mine !!
and by the way, I use thyroxine 100 mg. since 2 years now

May I suggest that someone can summarize general symptoms
and
general recommendations

I have 36 pages to read :oops:


Thanks

Hi all again,
I made some researches and I found this really interesting article
http://www.dailymail.co.uk/health/artic ... denly.html

It summarizes general reasons behind bloating tummy and it highlights 2 cases as well
One of the comments is really interesting in adding the possibility of candida albicans

Please advise :roll:

The Daily Mail is hardly a reliable source of medical information or advice.
