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

Have a feeling of "fullness/bloated-ness" in my stomach & am becoming anxious as I am emetophobic. What can I do to ease these episodes in the future?

Don't overfill: Stop eating/drinking as soon as you start to feel full. Avoid carbonated drinks and in fact avoid drinking while you are eating.
Eat some ginger candy or drink a bit of ginger tea. If it keeps up, ask your doctor to explain the feeling and prescribe something for it. Good luck! ...Read more

IntestinesMoving24/7: Peristaltic contractions of small intestines continue 24/7, mixing contents; facilitating digestion ; absorption. Listen to anyone's abdomen, at any time 24/7 ; you can hear gurgling from gases bubbling within the water contents of the small intestine, all 4 abdominal quadrants; bad news if not present. For people who swallow more air, the gas volume ; sound effects are greater. Gags may relate. ...Read more

Endometrial ablation 5 days ago, stomach feels bloated and full of preasure, is this from the ablation or something else?,

Endometrial ablation 5 days ago, stomach feels bloated and full of preasure, is this from the ablation or something else?,

Endometrial ablation: A few people can have bloating and pressure after an ablation but it also could mean you are getting a uterine infection. That will sometimes happen after an ablation. Watch for increasing pain or fever. I recommend you see your doctor in the next few days if this doesn't resolve. A pelvic exam will easily tell if you have an infection and antibiotics will treat it. ...Read more

I have a bloated stomach, diarea, and feel full all day. I'm also cramping. Went to urgent care and said I was ok. I suffer from ibs, cist in left kidn?

Need evaluation: If you haven't had a full workup by your primary care provider or gastroenterologist, I would suggest that. If you haven't had a recent colonoscopy, it may be needed for further evaluation. Urgent care centers are designed to treat urgent matters, but may not provide the complex workup that you may need to determine the cause of your symptoms. ...Read more

My stomach is tight and bloated I feel especially full after I eat I have no pain at all. My wbc is normal as well as I've went to the ER to get check?

ER not the place: To go for evaluation of something like this. You need to see a family doc, but first keep a diary of everything you eat, how soon this happens, how long it lasts, what relieves it, and any other symptoms you may have as well as your weight. Try eating very small meals very frequently and of course avoid any food or drink (especially gas producing ones) that cause this to happen. Good luck! ...Read more
