Dear Wendy
It is a bit late to investigate what is making you so bloated. If the diet you are using for your fitness competition contains an excess of dietary fibre or if you have been using slimming aids or supplements then anyone of the ingredients in these products could be causing the bloating. The only way to find out if you are suffering from a condition like irritable bowel syndrome(IBS) is to have a medical examination done. See if you can make an appointment with your gp before your competition so that he/she can prescribe medication to relieve the bloating and also schedule investigations to determine what is the cause of your bloating. You have really left this rather late.
Hope you do well in the competition
