Abdominal fullness: Diet, medications and certain internal conditions can do this. Sensation of stomach fullness is a concerning symptom. Please see your regular doctor for an examination and he or she will likely refer you for an egd (upper endoscopy) and/or other tests. ...Read more

Pretty sure I have a hernia in abdomen, now painful all the time, feel full and very tired it is starting to send tingling down groin, appt. March 5th?

Should be fine: Activity as tolerated by pain. If the pain is severe, and there is a tender lump in the groin that won't push down with pressure, you will need to seek emergency medical attention. You will probably be fine until your appointment. Good luck! ...Read more

Age 17, female, chest (breastbone) pain, extreme bloating, constipation, hard/painful abdomen to touch, nausea, and feeling of fullness. Any possible causes for someone of my age? Symptoms started to develop around a year ago.

I have a sense of pressure and fullness in my uterus/lower left abdomen, sometimes painful, what is this caused by? I am 22 and I am not pregnant. It sometimes hurts during intercourse.

Your : Your symptoms could represent a few different processes. First of all you need to be checked for a UTI (urinary tract infection). Your doctor can rule this out with a simple urine test. On the other hand, you could be dealing with a vaginal/pelvic infection(bacterial, yeast, or even std). Lastly, you could be dealing with ovarian cysts or even uterine fibroids (benign tumors of the uterus). There are multiple possibilities. I recommend a visit with your primary care provider or gyn for a complete evaluation. Best of luck. ...Read more

It might: A gynecology condition like endometriosis can sometimes be found on an appendix. Check with surgical pathology report if endometriosis was found in the specimen. Endometriosis can be associated with some of your symptoms. However, given that are 50, you may be better served with a multidisciplinary approach--seeing your gyn, pcp and GI docs for counseling. Make sure you had a colonoscopy also. ...Read more

Why do I always feel full? My stomach allways feels like i've just eaten a thanksgiving meal even if i just have a cup of milk. My digestion appears to be fine (to me anyway), I have regular bm, but i always feel full and bloated. I've been this way for 6

The : The most important thing you left out in your post is if you have seen a medical professional for this problem. If not that needs to be done asap. The easy simple answer here would be gas. Try over the counter beabo or gas-x. Also, you could be dealing with lactose intolerance, try a week with no dairy products and monitor for improvement. To answer your question, "is it anything serious" is very difficult. The most worrisome thing would be a tumor (benign or cancerous) but that is not very likely. However, in order to get to the bottom of this you need a medical work up. Best of luck. ...Read more

Hiatal hernia: A weakness at the opening to the stomach can cause a hiatal hernia and allow part of the stomach to enter the chest cavity. This may cause food to get stuck before entering into the stomach. An upper GI x-ray or gastroscope could show this. Should consult with your doctor to find out what is causing the problem. ...Read more

Very anxious: You sound very anxious, and these are sensations anxiety can produce. Exercise increases your respiratory rate, increasing the sensations -- so anxiety can feed on itself. It looks like your doctors have been investigating your heart status. You could also consider seeing a psychologist and/or psychiatrist about anxiety issues and how they relate to breathing.
