Customer Question
Stomach seems extended slightly...

Stomach seems extended slightly like full of air. Spasms all throughout the abdominal region it seems like my abdomen muscles are maintaining hold everything in if not for them i think the area would look and feel like a sack of jelly. Lying flat on my back the muscles seem strong but there are gaps though them which seem to lead to the under belly. not painful but sensitive. At rest sometimes feel a gas pain usually left center of the abdomen.

Doctor's Assistant: How long has this been bothering you? Are you experiencing any vomiting or nausea?

Experienced the bloated feeling before but now seems constant for 2-3 months. I'm having a colonoscopy preventive maintenance in October. But this condition may be out of that region.

Doctor's Assistant: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?

Sorry forgot No vomiting or nausea. No not at this time
