What is Bloating?

Bloating is when the lower abdomen is distended (swollen or becomes large). When this happens you get a feeling of fullness quicker than normal when eating. Your clothes become tight and uncomfortable, you feel sluggish and just generally bluh!

A distended lower abdomen may be a symptom of an underlying problem so you should always go to your doctor to rule this out, especially if the bloated feeling is for long periods and doesn't go away.
