My problems are usually really bad acid reflux. I had my gallbladder removed about 3 years ago. Now not only what I eat affect the reflux, but how much I eat. For years I've eat small meals throughout the day, but now I'm down to morsels because of reflux and now I have lots of stomach swelling. I have a BM almost everyday. I'm so scared they won't find anything wrong with me, like some of the other people here. I'll let you know how it goes.

  • I've had the same symptom of swollen belly, abdominal pain, plus other symptoms and my most recent test revealed small bowel polyposis. If you keep hurting, keep digging. It could be minor or very serious.

  • I have IBS. A life sentence it seems.Despite what, imo, pharmaceutical companies want you to believe (so you'll remain sick so you keep buying there product) nothing is incurable. Don't give up, keep seeking and you will find out the answer eventually, even if it comes from herbs and/or dietary changes recommended by alternative healers, etc.. If you are religious you can also pray to God (or whatever deity you prefer) for guidance, I have found that my prayers are always answered.
