Excessive bloating above belly button...

does this have anything to do with my endo/hormonal issues? OMG, my "gut" ABOVE my belly button is soooo distended. I have no idea what is going on. I showed a co-worker and she freaked. It feels like lots of pressure and slight cramping and is relatively firm to the touch and causes slight discomfort. Anyone else had this? Should I be worried or wait it out?

I don't mean to sound like I'm being bossy, but you should go to the doctor right away! Have you ever had a history of bowel problems? Have you been able to have a bowel movement lately. Your bowel may be obstructed, or there could be an infection or something could be leaking inside of you. Not to freak you out, but this could be really dangerous, and you should at least call your doc right away, if not go straight to the ER.
Please let me know how this turns out!

Hi Texgal,

Anytime that something "new and unusual" happends to our bodies, it is a good idea to get it checked out by a Dr. Let Him/Her decide if it is something that needs attention.

Let us know what he says,

TexGal, I hope you have been able to be seen about your stomach. It certainly sounds like something intestinal. Please let us know how you are doing!
