Horrible Endo Belly
I was diagnosed with Endo a year and a half ago, and have been having worsening symptoms since. Lately on my period, in addition to debilitating pain and other unpleasantness, I have been getting really bad “Endo belly”
This month I bloated up 15 pounds in 3 days, and my pelvis/ stomach is so distended that I look about 5 months pregnant. It’s horribly uncomfortable and painful, not to mention makes me feel terrible and embarrassed about how I look.
Anyone else on here have this level of severe bloat as a side effect of Endo? If so, how long does it usually last for at a time, and have you found anything that helps ease it, besides drinking lots of water and avoiding salt and sugar?
