My stomach (upper abdomen) feels very, very full and tight. I'm short of breath from feeling so full. My stomach feels distended and fat. I used to be able to "suck in," but even that has become difficult. I feel like my heart is beating outside of my chest. I feel sick to my stomach but not to the point of vomiting. I don't have any acid reflux symptoms (or any of the like) that I have researched. I feel like I have gained 100 pounds in my stomach, but I haven't gained any weight. What could this possibly be?
I'm attaching the list of symptoms found here on Healthcentral for reflux. See if you think your symptoms fit the description of dyspepsia. Regardless, if you have a new symptom that is persistent and bothersome, you should see your doctor to have it thoroughly diagnosed. You will want to make sure cardiac issues are ruled out and have your gall bladder and stomach assessed.
Good Luck - Stephanie
