Swelling of abdomen,no pain, feel bloated. monthly period stopped last month not pregnant but look it. more pressure felt after eating in upper ab.

Belly bloating: There are lots of reasons for abdominal discomfort & bloating, & not all of them are due to the GI tract. Even "functional" syndromes may be present without underlying "disease." however psbo (paralyzed gut) due to metabolic & inflammatory conditions nearby (like an untreated infection of the urinary tract)must be considered & addressed. Check with your doctor for examination & treatment options. ...Read more

After eating food that had corn substances in it my girlfriends frenulum swelled up how can she stop the pain and cause the swelling to go down?

After eating food that had corn substances in it my girlfriends frenulum swelled up how can she stop the pain and cause the swelling to go down?

Steroids: would be most likely to reverse the problem. Steroids by mouth, such as a Prednisone taper would probably work the best. Steroids reduce inflammation (swelling) and that should stop the pain. Are you sure it was related to eating corn? That seems like an unusual reaction, especially if there are no other symptoms. ...Read more
