Can it go away by itself or do you have to treat it?
I have grown a firm high belly and I have tested neg with pregnancy tests and wonder if this is the cause. I have not put any weight on and have actually lost weight recently, my tummy has been like this for over two weeks, no other parts of my body are swollen.
Hi i get water retention, i always find it worse in the aftanoon, i wake up looking nice and slim and go to bed looking like a bloater. Not realy sure what causes it. it can be realy uncomfortable and it makes you look pregnant (well it does me) but when i wake up in the morning it has gone.
my trousers are all hipsters and my clothes all fir except they are noticeably tighter around my tummy.
I had to change my tshirts a few times today to find one that went right over.
Someone suggested eating watercress, funny you should say that I had it with a sandwich yesterday and today in a pitta with houmous, ham and salad - rather tasty! Dont think its helped my tummy though.
It is only the centre of my tummy that is swollen, not the whole way around.
Just left message for gp to call me back, the one who saw me last week is now on holiday so i will have to speak to the moody one who makes you feel so guilty if you got to the surgery and you are not half dead. He told my friend off for going about her severe migraines...
