Dear Rhoda
It is possible that you suffer from irritable bowel disease (IBS) or some another medical condition that causes bloating or the build-up of gas in the abdomen over the course of the day. Because this type of symptom can be caused by such a wide variety of factors (IBS, gallbladder problems, food intolerances and allergies, enzyme deficiencies, ulcers, etc), it is best to have a medical checkup to obtain a diagnosis. Once we know what is causing this expansion in the afternoons we can look at dietary changes.
