tummy fluctuation
Hi there,

In the mornign I'll fit into my smallest pair of jeans - and by the late afternoon / evening they will be bursting around my middrift - and I feel fat! Literally - I wont fit in comfortably any more? They feel a size too small! What's going on??? I've had this for as long as I can remember - and its confusing cuase it makes me think I'm fat one moment and thin the next!!! What on earth could cause this? In such a short period of time? thanks Doc!

Dear Reader
This type of bloating or swelling of the abdomen could be caused by so many different conditions (e.g. spastic colon, food allergies, oedema, etc), that the first step is to have a medical examination to determine what the underlying cause is. Once we have a diagnosis then we can see what dietary changes are required.
