In brief: Get help for bloat

There are lots of reasons for abdominal bloat/pain, and not all of them are due to the GI tract.
Even "functional" syndromes may be present without underlying "disease." if pain with meals consider peptic (acid), biliary, or pancreatic disease. If bleeding or tenderness is present, this suggests inflammation, ischemia, or infection. Evaluation is warranted.
