Why Is My Stomach Inflamed
Abdominal swelling: When you say "swelling" are you relating your abdominal circumference to feelings of distension, fluid retention, constipation, overeating, or do you feel pregnant? Hard to answer your question without further information and clarity. Over what period of time have you noted the swelling--minutes or months, and what are your underlying medical problems (alcohol, liver disease, gut problems...)? ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
Anything: Most people think their whole abdomen is their stomach, but the stomach is in the upper middle or upper left of the abdomen. If your lower abdomen hurts, that could be your skin, muscles, bladder, uterus, or intestines. If the upper part of your abdomen hurts, it could be acid reflux, pancreatitis, or other problems. See a doctor for an assessment. ...Read more

Consider this...: If you're indicating your epigastrium (just below the ribs in the midline), then you may have peptic disease (e.g. ulcer, gerd, reflux) or contractions or delayed emptying of the gut in that location (stomach, mid-colon). Less likely (& appropriate to symptom duration, intensity, timing, risks) your gallbladder or pancreas may be the issue. Alternatively, you may just be feeling the xyphoid bone. ...Read more

Feels full of "air": Feeling full of "gas" may reflect malabsorption of food (like gluten, lactose), intake of poorly digested food, or choosing foods known to promote gas (beans, fizzy drinks). Sometimes its more complicated--a stomach emptying too slowly, bacterial overgrowth syndrome, delayed intestinal function, partial obstruction from any cause, infection, rectum problems, and pelvic pathology outside the gut. ...Read more
Irritable bowel ?: Bloating, irregular stools, and fullness may reflect diet (check your fiber intake), alterations in the population of 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. Testing is easy. ...Read more
I had my C-section 3 years and my lower abdominal area gets really inflamed and hot alot. Incision looks fine but inside it hurts. What causes this?
Why doed my spleen hurt? Or around that area. Slightly nauseas and my stomach hurts too. On antibiotics from uti
Depends: Most people can't really identify spleen pain; even our brain has a difficult time of it, often referring it to different places or just a generalized midline pain. If you have a uti, pain in the flank could mean the infection has ascended to your kidney, especially if you have fever as well. That would be my top concern; if these symptoms are new, i would see your doctor again asap. ...Read more
