    My tummy is huge, but i'm not pregnant!.....cured by magic doctor!!

    my tummy has been sticking out too much since more than two months ago. at first i thought i was fat. also because i just got off the plane. (i'm a flight attendant.) so i just suck it in more, partly to look better, mostly because the tummy is pushing out too much and it hurts.

    now the part just underneath the ribcage is also sticking out.

    my doctor thinks it's indigestion. because i also feel that my stomach is not moving. i also can't eat as much as before, like there is something there already and makes me feel full.

    will have ultra sound next week to see if anything like stones or zits.

    have any of you or your friends have this kind of illness before? what is it and how did they become better?

    last week i got gasteel from doctor and it made me fart so much. this time she gave me some enzyme that actually helps me digest. let's see...

    My sister had something very similar, had loads of tests and the doctor concluded that she is very sensitive to fibre, so she has to keep her diet low-fibre.

    I've been thinking about what you said. It might be a food allergy. Have you been tested for those?

    hello Sabrina,

    no, i've never tested for food allergy.

    maybe after ultra sound, will do the allergy thing. do people suddenly start being allergic to certain things?

    This is a classic symptom of ovarian cysts or (ahem) ovarian cancer. Something to get checked out right away. Hopefully it IS indigestion.

    Best,

    Yes, people can develop allergies to things they were not allergic to before.

    I would definitely see your doctor, as mentioned in above post. Let us know how you are.

    Re: My tummy is huge, but i'm not pregnant!

    yes, a colleague told me she had tummy has huge as mine and turned out that she had a giant cysts. my doctor pressed on my tummy and said it shouldn't be but she's sending me to have a check.

    another told me that when she had big tummy, the chinese medicine doctor told her that she has a weak spleen from being too tired. she had many chinese medicine for many months.

    allergies.... i really hope not... i like my food!

    i really wish i'm just fat. easier to just try to lose weight than to be sick or allergic.

    i'm burping and farting like crazy right now. tomorrow has to go on a flight. it's the worst thing - i have to keep dodging people to fart and there isn't much space on the plane!

    Re: My tummy is huge, but i'm not pregnant!

    I've been dealing with something similar for over a year. I've had complete loss of appetite and when I do eat I get very bloated. I've gone through so many different tests it;s not even funny and they still don't know what it is. I've been trying things on my own lately. Like not eating as much bread or products with yeast and that seems to help a little. It's very frustrating. Hopefully you'll get an answer soon. I'm still trying to figure out what to do : ( Good luck!

    hello Poohbear,
    i'm waiting to have ultra sound to check the gall bladder on tuesday. maybe more tests after. meanwhile, i have started eating a teaspoon of manuka honey every morning because it's supposed to be really good for the digestive system. my colleague told me she used to diarrhea all the time for unknown reasons and a few weeks after she started the honey, her problem stopped completely. she also had tried stop eating the honey and then the problem came back.
    there is a jar of manuka honey at home so i'm starting to eat it. even if it doesn't help i know it should not harm me. and it's so nice to have something sweet first thing every day when i get up!

    Re: My tummy is huge, but i'm not pregnant!

    i'm cured by magic doctor!

    monday i met up with a colleague friend. she just flew with these two girls who know this magic chinese medicine doctor. they were going to visit the doctor so i followed them.

    one big room, doctor sat at corner, all patients in same room chatting and laughing. felt good energy. so i consulted him also. he pressed some pressure points. really hard! shook my whole arm. hit my spine with his knees. hit my hips. (my spine and hips a bit twisted) hit my tummy. i asked if my spine would break. he said no. and said i was just fat and dumb.

    and then air started build up in my tummy, and went up slowly, made me burp. again and again. i forgot to take my medicine from western doctor. and then i hang out with my colleagues and ate some really heavy cake. and then i had dinner with my friend. i ate so much but i was fine!

    Bought a bottle of Plum Smart over the weekend and am giving it a shot, starting today. Thanks for recommending!

    The fiber supplement I was taking (Citrucel type) made me extremely bloated and uncomfortable, ugh.

    Well, I'm very happy that you're doing much better, wingaki, but I think what that "magic doctor" said is quite mean & unnecessary!

    Anyhoo, please-please-PLEASE still go get your ultra-sound!!! I have uterine fibroid tumor issues that are necessitating a hysterectomy at the end of the year...had same prob as you--overall, thin but bloated tummy, no chance of getting pregnant--but with lots of pain; waited for as long as I could stand the pain but I'm done...

    Also remember, you're in a plane for your job. The way subtle changes in cabin pressure make the air in plastic bottles contract, expand, contract...that's happening to the air in your body as well.

    Get medical issues checked out, by all means, but also look into yoga positions, abdominal massage techniques to help release trapped gas at either end (I know, not glam) for after your flight as well as checking that you aren't eating pre-flight/in-flight foods that might be making the problem worse (things that normaly might make you feel a little gassy or bloaty may be worse in-flight.

    Re: My tummy is huge, but i'm not pregnant!.....cured by magic doctor!!

    hello and thank you for all good thoughts and advice xxxxxxx

    yes i did do the ultra sound check. doctor found nothing so it's only gas.

    i went back to magic doctor the next day. he's actually a chinese medicine doctor. we call those chinese medicine doctors who are very good as 'magic' doctor.

    this time he pressed some pressure points again. when he pressed the inside of my knees for a long time i asked him to please stop, because it hurt too too much. he said he must not stop, because my ovary is stuck. he said that was why i had bad period pain and my period didn't come although it was due. it is true that for the past year or more i've been having bad period pain and back pain, and last few months, after all the pms my period wouldn't come, and then a few days later all the pms again and then period.

    he told me that before and during period i must not eat any fruit and vegetables, and i must eat deep fried food.

    the next day i flew to london. when i arrived my period started. i told my husband i must eat deep fried food so he bought me big bags of chips. no pain at all!!!

    now i think period pain is due to the fact that for more than a year now i ate a big big bowl of salad every day. for chinese medicine, salad is very cold in nature. we all must keep a balance in our body. women during period become cold, so we need to eat something that is hot in nature to balance it. i think all that salad must make my body too cold.

    Re: My tummy is huge, but i'm not pregnant!.....cured by magic doctor!!

    It sounds like the writer went to a doctor who practices Chinese medicine and what they prescribed worked for her. If you have tried all the conventional methods w/o success and want to try something different, you might try to locate someone who practices Chinese medicine in your area. Some times you can find local people who practice alternative med. thru your local health food store so check there or they can suggest something that might help. But remember just because something worked for one person doesn't mean it will work for you. And be careful of the herbs you take, some can have side effects and cause more problems!

    I am a newbie here. You guys provided so much useful information here, thank you. I have just seen a naturopath and got food allergy tests done but they found nothing. I have been bloating for years and years. It is so uncomfortable and makes working out so discouraging. I am a tiny person, but after I eat anything, I look about 6-7 months pregnant, no joke. I am going to the candida cleanse I think. Have any of you done this before? I have heard it is quite hard to do. I just don't know what else to do from here. I have tried so many things :(

    Have you tried going a few days without wheat (bread, pasta, etc?) I'm not gluten-free by any stretch, but cutting back on wheat has helped significantly with bloating for me. And cutting simple starches in general (potato, rice, corn, sugar & alcohol, along with wheat) seems to reduce my belly fat faster than anything (when I can stick to it -- those things are delicious!)
