What could it be? IBS or Bowel

On behalf of Sandra:
I seem to be bloated a lot of the time but it is hard to understand what actually causes it – sometimes it happens just after drinking water. Other times it seems to be after eating sugary foods – but there seems no general pattern. The bloating I have makes my stomach drum tight – and I look about 10 months pregnant – normally happens towards the end of the day and is extremely uncomfortable but luckily subsides over the night. Do you have any idea what might be causing it in particular and is it IBS or a bowel issue or something else. I have had it for years....

Re: What could it be? IBS or Bowel

Bloating is one of the most common GI related complaint.
First thing is to make sure its not caused by fluid in your tummy(bloated all the time). If your bloating comes later in the day then its almost certainly IBS related problem.
Causes can be variable mostly dietary.
Restricting wheat, dairy sometimes helps.
Peppermint products also helps .
