How much bloating is normal with IBS? Not to be super graphic but here is a picture of my bloating,
Doctors are insisting that it's "just IBS" but I've never met another IBSer with so much bloating. I am IBS-C, but even with regular bowel movements nothing changes. It's 38 inches around my waist (measuring right around my bellybutton)
Am I just fat? I went from a size 5 or 7 up till now I can barely fit an women's 12 around my waist. Then everything is hugely baggy everywhere else because no where else on my body am I size 12.
This NEVER goes away. I've gained twenty pounds in the last year. I am NOT pregnant (I've done tons of at home tests and gone to the doctors... Not to mention the fact that it's been like this for a year now)
Is this normal? Anyone have any ideas?
