Irritable Bowel ?: Bloating, fluttering, fullness, altered stooling may reflect diet (check your fiber intake), alterations in healthy gut flora we each carry, food intolerances, maldigestion due to problems of the small intestine, pancreas, or biliary tree, changes in GI motility (how well your GI tract mixes and moves food along), various infections, and even irritable bowel syndrome.

What will my postpartum belly look and feel like as a thin woman? All weight is in belly, very round like a ball. How will belly feel after i deliver?
Squishy and stretche: After the baby is delivered your abdominal wall will remain stretched out and squishy for a couple of months.

Inguinal Hernia: Inguinal, or groin hernias are very, very common (in men). If the hernia is small and not interfering with your daily activities, it is acceptable to take a "wait-and-see" approach.

Claustrophobia: Sounds like claustrophobia. Seek a cognitive-behavioral therapist who specializes in phobias.

Common: The armpit (axilla) has a lot going on in a small space...All the muscles, blood vessels, and nerves that connect the arm to the torso traverse this space, there are a lot of lymph nodes, plus there are many specialized skin glands. Axillary pain can be related to any of these structures. If there are no obvious "lumps" or areas of swelling, it is usually of musculoskeletal origin. ...Read more
