Ask your doctor to run some liver function tests. It could be ascites, which is an accumulation of fluid in the abdomen. If I were you, I would read this site thoroughly and see my doctor. The doctor should do some blood tests and possibly refer you to a liver specialist. The more info you have the better you can take care of yourself. Liver disease can lead to cirrhosis, and is known as the "silent killer." Keep asking until someone give you an answer.
Peace be with you!Source(s): I have non-alcoholic cirrhosis of the liver.

I would get another opinion and have yourself tested for all food allergies, it's a simple blood test. A lot of food allergies can cause bloating...I had the same problem for years along with a few other stomach problems and I was finally diagnosed as having celiac disease which is an allergy to wheat and gluten. Totally fixed now with a gluten free diet.

Go back to the doctor and ask to have an ultrasound on your gall bladder.
Gall stones that block your bile duct can cause bloating, particularly after eating. It is worst if you eat fatty foods like greasy French fries.
If you also experience severe belching after eating, along with pain or discomfort just below the rib cage on your right side, it is probably gall bladder problems. Another symptom is light colored or chalky bowel movements.
An endoscopic exam would not reveal problems with the gall bladder.

Well maybe you are backed up, try eating a lot of fiber. Or maybe you are eating something that is giving you really bad gas. Maybe get tested to an allergic reaction to food, that used to happen to me when I had anything with peanuts

Go to any vitamin store or walmart, and get fiber tablets. They will get rid of any waste you have. Sometimes as we get older, our systems change. Sometimes our systems get sluggish.
My doctor also said that fiber pills taken daily help to reduce cholesterol.
Best of luck.
