From the time I get something to drink and eat breakfast in the morning until I go to be at night my stomach is bloated and I feel pressure all the time. My lower stomach and right below my waist line is swollen. My upper abdomen is also swollen. Now I have taking anti acids and anti bloating pills and they do not work. Should I go see a GI Doctor right away? Is there anything I can do for this myself?
