In brief: Belly bloating

There are lots of reasons for abdominal discomfort & 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 the urinary tract)must be considered & addressed. Check with your doctor for examination & treatment options.
