           Stomach swollen, I have put on 100 pounds or more suddenly feeling is uncomfortable, I have nausa, vomiting, and shortness of breath when I walk. Plus I run out of energy and feel tired all the time. Once in awhile a sharp headache,continous swelling feet,l egs, hands,(had to enlarge rings to wear them)and face (had eyelid surgery becase lids closed my eyes over my pupils so I could not see), I look like a blown up balloon. Throat sore quite often ( like one has the mumps).

    Hi Linda,

     

    With the swelling you are experiencing you should see a doctor. You could have something serious that is causing the edema you are experiencing. Online sites like Health Central are great resources for getting information that will help you ask all the questions of your doctor, but can not take the place of your doctor's solid medical advice.

     

    There is a good symptom checker here that you can look at to see where your symptoms might be coming from. Make sure you have a note pad to take notes and write down questions. For instance, there is information here about swollen abdomen and what some of the causes can be.

     

    I hope this helps some. Please stay in touch and let us know how you are doing!

    A doctor visit is definately needed. He should check for: Congestive heart failure, hypothyroidism, pulmonary dysfunction, high blood pressure, and a liver function test.

    You sound like you have something that has compromised your liver, and the ripple effect is hitting several other organs....possibly Hepatitis. Some types of Hepatitis don't cause the typical darkening of the skin and urine until they are VERY far along.  It also sounds like your kidneys are not working very well.

     

    Frankly, if I had those symptoms, I'd be in the emergency room screaming for help.
