the swelling starts to occur as soon as i eat something in the morning, and my stomach gradually distends throughout the day. some days are worse than others but as far as i can tell it is not getting better. every night i go to bed distended and wake up in the morning back to normal.
i dont think it is serious but i need to know what it is so i can go back to normal! it occurs at my lower abdomen, sometimes more on the left side but there is only a small difference between the right and left sides.

i am naturally skinny, this has not happened before, but it has now happened every day for about 2 months. im not pregnant (urine test at doctor confirmed) and i have no idea what this is. at the moment i am on lactose elimination diet for a week because my mum is lactose intolerant, but so far it hasn't made any difference.
please help.

  • I have almost identical symptoms. Have you been to a doctor?
