Hello: Below my stomach, the groin area, is constantly in distention for around 3-4months.  I feel like  I'm pregnant, and am a male! Sometimes the area feels like it is in knots. I am a vegetarian, and really don't eat much, I am only 112 lbs., and should weigh a minimum of 125, according to the charts. Why do I have the bloating / distension, and how can I make it go down? Thank you, H. Kaplan

Hi Howie,

I'm sorry to hear you're having so much discomfort and bloating. What you're describing sounds very similar to what happens to individuals with gluten intolerance. Gluten is a wheat protein. I recommend trying a gluten free diet to see if this provides any relief.

If you have also having pain then I would see your doctor.

 Hope that's helpful!
