I am so uncomfortable i don't even know what to do with myself. I'm so bloated that i'm in pain. I feel like i have big pockets of air inside of me and it hurts so bad. Like i'm getting elbowed from the inside. My tummy is all extended and my skin hurts from stretching and my ribs even hurt. It keeps getting worse day by day. What do i do?!?!

I'm not even constipated.

I shared before that those flavored, club soda-like waters have really helped me in the past. I hope you feel better!!!!

I think you are too kind. Kind people give the people around them a hard time. You can't express yourself honestly, because you are worried about hurting other people's feelings, and that makes you miserable.~"Winter Sonata"

Does it feel like gas or excess fluid? I'm not sure if gasx is safe, since I haven't needed it in a while, but it might be worth finding out. If it's fluid, I have no clue.

It feels like air pockets. If I was further along I would think someone was pushing out with their knees like my son used to do. I need to look up my meds book and see if there is anything I can take.


Hugss- I avoid any sodas because they literally will put me on my knees in tears from the gas pains.

Hmmm...I was going to ask if you were constipated, but you sad no.

Do you eat/drink a lot of dairy? Maybe try cutting that out and see if it helps.

GasX was the only thing that helped me when I was like this---I always took a double dose. It is safe. Hope you feel better.

Other then swiss cheese on a sandwich that's been it recently. I don't drink cows milk, and I've not been even eating ice cream.
