Hope the medics soon find out what's happening in your body so that they can prescribe treatments that will resolve it quickly. All the best.

Hi Tidge,

What medication are you on? My stomach has been very bad and swollen on a lot of the maintenance inhalers. I've had to stop taking them. I'm very slim, but after a few months of medication look at though I'm 5 months pregnant. It goes down when I stop. They've also affected my kidneys/bladder - to what extent I'm not sure.

Look luck with the scan and I hope they resolve your problems.

Take care

I hope they get you sorted out and find out what the underlying problem(s) is. It's a horrible pain and makes it so difficult to do anything.

Do take care.

Hello Tidge

You’ll soon know with the ultrasound. Unfortunately with all the meds we take our digestive system is the first to suffer. I am full of digestive pills as well and have to do an endoscopy, to check the stomach.

In the meantime I discovered last year I was intolerant to lactose. And if it continues I may be given up gluten as well. I eat buckwheat crispbread and lactosefree cheese! 😃 but it has alleviated inflammation I must say.

I follow a more alcaline diet.

Hope it helps xx

Good luck Tidge Fran 🍀💕

Yes, Fran. My late husband Bob who had severe COPD, ended up with food intolerances to cows milk and bleached flour. Milk made him swell up like a football (16" on the waist in 2 hours) and flour made him very breathless. He was OK on unbleached flour and goat and sheep milk - as we found out on a holiday in Rhodes in the 80s when cows milk was a rarity there and all the flour a lovely golden colour.

Update had ultrasound today, never felt pain like it when it was being done, feeling pretty sick too at the moment which was expected after all the prodding with the scan I thought scans were painless geezz I have a high pain threshold but not today x
