In brief: Constipation

If you have chronic constipation, then more fiber likely just makes you bloated and more gassy.
This is because you most likely have a combination of evacuation issues along with a colonic motility issue. The best solution at this point would be to see a specialist and get labs, thyroid studies followed by a physiologic work up of your colon. In the meantime.. Low fiber diet with regular laxative.
