Extreme bloating can be caused by several factors including a severe case of constipation where fluid retention is a common symptom.

Spicy foods, unfamiliar foods, or ingesting something with a high sodium content can all lead to bloating. People can also bloat due to water retention (which is in part due to sodium).

If you are female, delayed menstruation is a definite possibility. Male or female, too much salt and sugar can create a bloating effect, as can constipation. Constipation plus gas could cause extremely painful bloating, and gas by itself might cause it as well. Inflammation in your stomach or intestines would also do it.

Bloating can be caused by not having enough fiber in your diet. Take a fiber supplement for a week or so and see if the problem will clear up. Also drink lots of water to get things moving. Water retention can cause bloating especially in the week before a woman's monthly cycle.
