I have been diagnosed with IBS for a little over a year now and have been put on some medicine then to take whenever I said stomach "issues" and basically couldn't eat w/o running to the bathroom. Well now I am somewhat over that issue as that only happens every few days instead of 5 times a day. But for the last few months (maybe long than a few...) I have had an AWFUL bloating problem! Any time I eat ANYTHING!! my stomach blows up huge and literally looks like I'm pregnant. I am NOT pregnant and hate looking like I am since I'm in high school. I now only wear T-shirts or sweatshirts since I don't want people to see my stomach and see what it looks like. I had a pop tart at 2:50 pm (its now 6:10) and my stomach is still very huge. I was wondering if anyone knows of things to help with this very embarassing stomach problem. Prom is coming up in a few weeks and now I have to consider not eating dinner with everyone since my stomach will get huge and my dress will show it a lot. PLEASE help me if you know any suggestions/solutions! I have not been to see a doctor with this since my mom prob. won't think its a huge issue but if I need meds to make it go away then I will talk to her. Thank you very much!
