Hello- I am a 29-yr old male who has been pretty athetic my whole life. About 10 yrs ago, in college, I had pancreatitis, as well as severe abdominal pains to the point I lost a great deal of weight and was nauseated contantly.
Now, at 29, I have severe distention. I honestly look pregnant and my stomache is hard as a rock. I have gained over 50 lbs. in the past 6-7 months and have not changed my diet. If anything I am eating healthier/less often. I had a CT-scan which was "OK." I am scheduled for a colonoscopy but the Doctor doesn't know if that will show anything. I have severe heart0burn and shortness of breath. It's as if I am carrying a 50 weight strapped to my stomache. Aside from the embarrassment, it is uncomfortable, even to sit-down. It pushes into my ribs or else, my lower abdomen/crotch. Like I said, I hope someone out there would at least be able to relate. I have not gained weight anywhere else accept my stomache.
I also should mention that I sweat and get hot-flashes. I mainly sweat from my forehead which has seemed to "stump" my Doctors. If anyone can relate to these symptoms or give advice, it'd be much appretiated. The earliest colonoscopy I get is in 1 MONTH! It is something that is bothering me daily and I thought I'd give this a shot!
Thank you for reading this....and in advance, thank you if you have some ideas/advice to help me
