I was doing leg lifts and stomach crunches on my bed every morning when something popped. I thought I pulled a muscle but that was'nt it. I went from losing weight to severe weight gain in my stomach only. Within a few weeks I could'nt close my pants.Also have severe swelling in my back and thighs.I can sit down some days and feel my thighs swelling. I could'nt have my regular bowel movements without a laxative.I still don't feel that I'm having a complete bowel movement. I think my intestine is twisted or herniated.I spent all I could afford on doctors visits.They could'nt find anything.I feel something in my stomach. Why am I swelling and what can I do to fix it?
