I recently started suffering with this -to the point where I couldn't fasten my jeans. After examination,Gp referred me for an abdominal scan, which found nothing. So I started eliminating foods to see if anything changed it -found it to be a cereal I was eating a lot of -which contained peanuts among other things. Think it was asda but crunch or something like that. Stopped eating it and within days the bloating had stopped. Could be a food intolerance, the only problem being that there are so many food groups it can take forever to eliminate the one that affects you. I'd never had this problem in the past. But I've also recently developed an intolerance to peppers as well!?
Hope this helps, good luck :-)

As IBS is associated with FM, it could be attributed to this. As Wobbly woo has said tho, it could also be related to something in your diet that is aggravating things.

There are a few on here who have found that cutting down/cutting out wheat can help reduce the bloating, altho like other FM~related things, it doesn't always help everyone.

To find out what the cause is, another trip to see your doc will be needed I'm afraid :facepalm: :facepalm: :facepalm: :facepalm: :facepalm:

Just a quick update. Saw a new gp yesterday and he was very good he is sending me for more tests and not just putting everything down to fibro. Had to get a double app as I had a list :lol:

I've suffered from IBS for years and bloating was a major issue. Bread was the problem with myself and I limit it to small amounts in a week (e.g. 2 slices). :crazy:

I've found that after a few weeks, the bloating reduces.
