Seriously, I'm HUGE... :eek::eek: I went from a size 30 waist to more than 40 in just over a week. I have not been eating alot. And the weight is all in my abdomen. I look like I'm about ready to have a baby. I'm chronically constipated, which I'm sure doesn't help. My abdomen hurts really bad. My doctor admitted me to the hospital two days ago, they ran every test known to mankind, I think. All of them came back negative?:confused: COME ON... The doc that did my endoscopy said it looked like I might have a little bit of gastritis. Does anybody else here have gastritis? If so, just how big did your tummies get????

  • Give us more please: What are your eating habits?How old are you?Did they use medications to clean you out? Consider you impacted?Do you have colon spasms or such?Do you drink?Eat lots of bread and pasta? That can bloat.And yes after several days of constipation with severe gas etc. you can bloat very large and hurt. THat is why need to eat foods to keep regular if you can. If have spastic colon, that can be an factor. I have to take meds to stop the spasms with are tied to my migraines. Then the colon does all right. :p

  • I have gastritis, and people ask me if I am pregnant all the time. Try eating fruits and vegetables for the constipation. It usually helps me
