I´m 16 years old and I suffer from IBS, I have recently been diagnosed but I have been struggling with the symptoms for almost 2 years. It is a nightmare, I still can´t believe that at such a young age I am having all these issues.

 

My main problem is that I am always bloated, like 24/7 and this has been ever since I lost weight, about 2 years. It´s been so long I don´t remember ever having a flat belly. I am 5 foot 9 (1.78 m) and weigh around 152 lbs (69 kg). I workout from 4 to 6 times per week. I eat EXTREMELY healthy, no junk food, no candy, no soda.NOTHING, I just can´t keep on going, I give up, it doesn't matter how much I take care of my body or how much I exercise, I am always bloated. I don´t know if I have excess air, or water retention, I just don't know. I have been tested and nothing, they haven´t found anything that could be triggering my bloated belly. As of now, my doctor gave me a couple pills in order to alleviate the bloating but nothing.

 

In a week, my friends and I are going all together to the beach and I really want to enjoy it. Have any of you guys have had a similar problem? and have you ever been able to cure it? Do you guys think I can debloat in 7 days? Pls, any type of help would be appreciated.

 

 P.S. sorry for the bad English.

have you been tested for SIBO--small intestine bacterial overgrowth.   severe bloating is a definite symptom of sibo.  constipation can be a symptom of it, too.
