Hi bees. I’m trying not to be overly paranoid but I have had a lovely stomach bug that is going away… but now I have THE WORST bloating/swelling/pressure in my lower abdomen. It’s really painful and it feels like period bloat x500… I haven’t experienced this since the first trimester so its almost foreign this swelling…
So is this normal, or should I call my doc? I just want it to stop! UGH!

From what I understand, any swelling should mean a call to the doctor (especially if it is sudden). It is probably just gas from the stomach bug, but can’t hurt to call anyway! I’d call just for peace of mind.

jivet: Thanks for this… I think you might have been right. the bloated feeling went away. I think part of it had to do with the amount of ginger ale I was drinking… all that carbonation took a toll! Ugh! What a time to get the stomach bug!

I’m going to guess that you just have severe gas. Have you tried taking a Gas-X? They work wonders.
