You’re not pregnant and you haven’t gained weight, but your jeans are straining at the waist. So what’s going on? Here are the most common causes…
Possible Causes of a Bloated Stomach
- Digestive Disorders
Most people dealing with various functional gastrointestinal disorders like IBS, ulcerative colitis and celiac disease have bloating, gas, distension and other symptoms.
- Fluid Retention
Sometimes bodily fluids can be stored around the body, including near the abdomen or pelvis area, which causes excess bloating and temporary weight gain. You might also notice jewelry and clothes becoming tighter, extra swelling, and pain around joints or tightness in the skin. This can be due to a liver disease in some cases or rarely even from cancer.
