Oh gosh I know how you feel. I look like I'm seven months preggers and it's worse during the time of the month. When I got IBS years ago I had to donate all my clothes and buy floaty tops . Thank goodness they hide my inflated stomache .When it's windy outside though and too warm to wear a jacket I'm horrified someone will see my stomache when my shirt gets blown against my stomache . I can no longer wear fitted clothes or else people will think I'm pregnant. Lately though I haven't seen any floaty tops where I live so I don't even know if I'll be able to buy any again. I was able to buy a lot of discounted ones when they became trendy.Now I hate shopping too. It's so embarrasing. I honestly can't believe there's no cure. It's 2010 already. I tried peppermint oil capsules too. All they did was give me severe cramps gas bloat and d.
This is depressing for sure.

Celiac disease is a autoimmune disorder of the small intestine.I thought for sure I had it and then I get dianosed with IBS after all the tests which is even worse! By now there should be cures for all illnesses. Good luck on trying to conceive since that's not easy sadly with stomache probs and I hope you blood work is ok.
