Please answer the questions above so that it can help me understand your situation better .
no i just recently started getting bloated. This seems exceptionally unusual. I thought it was a curse.
As you have this sudden distension of the abdomen this does warrant a check
There could be a few reasons that could cause this .
This can be caused as a result of increased fat and also due to other reasons like fluid accumulation in the abdomen
what causes the fluid in the abdomen
Investigations like a complete blood count that should also check for your thyroid hormone levels along with an ultrasound or CT scan of your abdomen will help investigate this further .
Fluid accumulation can be caused due to disease processes associated with abdominal organs
As you have the bloating you can use a liquid like maalox available over the counter to help the bloating
SO please discuss the points I mentioned with your doctor .
