I have such bad bloating all the time but I have no idea what I can consistently take as a supplement to keep it down. I've tried mint tea but I can't always make it. I literally woke up this morning with a flat stomach, I drank a cup of cranberry juice and a couple minutes later I ballooned out. thanks for listening everyone, and tell me any suggestions you have!

    I have pretty much the same's hard to eat a lot of the times bc the trapped gas is so bad. The bloating makes my back hurt too. I don't know if my anxiety causes ibs or my ibs is causing my anxiety/depression

    Yeah I have this problem. I'm still trying to figure out what my belly even wants.

    Have you tried to go without dairy in your diet and see if you’re lactose intolerant as well? My doctor told me I have IBS as well but I found out on top of that that lactose intolerance was a huge issue for me and I had no idea I just thought it was apart of the IBS. I’d definitely recommend that if you haven’t tried already. I feel a lot better now without it in my diet.

    I opted to try the low FODMAP diet to figure out what triggers which IBS symptoms. I'm reintroducing foods now and my gut is doing much better. It's a tedious process but well in worth it. I'm working with a dietician but this approach can be self guided too. I know also added, at my dietician's advice, a gentle in probiotic and fiber supplement. Let me know if you'd like more info about any of that!

    I have this problem too. I haven't been able to eat or drink anything in 5 years without it bloating me like a balloon. Let us know if you do find anything that helps. It really sucks

    I have such a different in waist size based on bloat. What fits loose in the morning may be digging in hurting 2 hrs later. I gave up regular pants. Jeggings are my best friend.
