In May of 2007 I had an MI and since , I have gained 40 lbs ...it took me 20 years to go from 180lbs to 200lbs and just 6 months to break the 240 lb mark yuck I hate it but the worst part of it is I wake up in the morning semi comfortable and each and every day as the day progresses I bloat more and more until I feel like I'm going to pop like an over filled balloon . It really doesn't matter how little or much I eat its the same thing everyday . The only way to prevent it is to not eat or drink at all . Even drinking alot of water causes me to bloat and I do have to drink alot of water because of how dehydrated I feel and of course the heart attack I endured . Can anyone help me solve this problem ...I truly feel like taking a needle and poking my belly to see if it will pop lol ugh . My heart meds could be a factor in the dryness and bloating but my doctor shruggs and says my weight will level off and reverse it self with time and thinks the weight gain is caused by quitting smoking 8 months ago . I hope someone can share some ideas ...thankx

Its been two weeks and it did nothing for my lumbar ever... but it did seem to help my cervical and arm/hand pain...
