Hi Geb and everyone, I am curious about all the good suggestions in this post. What has worked? I know we all have different circumstances. Mine is unique as well. Just around my menstrual cycle, I get abnormally bloated, looking like I am nine months pregnant. This has been going on since 2007. No significant changes to diet or lifestyle. Always been a vegetarian. Been to multiple specialists, had several exams and tests – all the normal suspects (IBS, cysts, ulcers) are all negative. Pictures show day before period and 1st day of period. Any suggestions or advice?
