hello everyone! I'm new to these posting but I've been haveing stomach pains and swelling of the stomach after eating. When it swells I look like I'm 5-6 months pregnant(which I'm not!!). The only thing that usually solves this problem is haveing a bowel movement or vomiting. It doesn't matter what I eat or when. It may not be everytime but it is several times a week and can start 10 min or so after eating. I've been reading on some of the possible causes but noone really seems to mention the relief comes after a BM or vomiting. Anyone out there with any other ideas would be helpful since noone likes to feel it only happens to them!!!

You should still, however, go see your doctor to make sure that you do not have Menetrier's disease or a peptic ulcer.
