What does it mean when you're bloated, cramping, gassy, but don't start your period for another 8 days?

In brief: Bloating / gassiness

There are lots of reasons for gassiness & bloating, & not all of them are due to the GI tract.
Even "functional" syndromes may be present without underlying "disease." however psbo (paralyzed gut) due to metabolic & inflammatory conditions nearby (like an untreated infection of gyne or urinary tract) must be considered. See doctor, esp. If no relief from otc simethicone, beano, & dietary changes.
