Cant wear anything over my stomach anymore, feels like theres something inside it

Posted , 5 users are following.

I have had stomach problems for a while now and most days take omez 20mg 1 daily. just so everything I ate does not come to haunt me when laying down, but now for a while have this pregnant tummy that becomes hard, even in my sides and it feels like theres rocks in my stomach, if I push on the hard bumps you can actually feel its pushing against something else inside, I cannot even wear anything across my stomach anymore, cannot sit against the table, feels like something inside is pinching my skin against the table.  Cannot sit properly anymore either, feels like something is pressing against my cocyx as well and cannot stand up quickly after sitting, have to lean forward for a while, or else its very painfull. and apart from that my whole body aches, joints, muscles, middle of my ribcage to the underarms, to below my shoulderblade, irregular heartbeat (very bad sometimes) , cant walk from car to shop without catching my breath inbetween. and then HUGE clots when having my period (last for up to 3 weeks sometime) nothing the next day and then suddenly (like when getting out of the car at church) everything just gushes out again  sooooo embarrasing.  Oh I am turning 50 this year.  Anybody that has the same please just tell me I am not going to die soon cause it really feels like it, even got my will ready.

    Rene,

    I had the same thing minus the blood clot/issues. The hardening in your stomach is the fibroids. They feel hard. I looked like I was 4-5 mths pregnant. I had the same issues like you, trouble breathing, etc. you have to go see your Obgyn and get an mri done. After my first mri I was determined to get them shrunk. I did the embolization in March 2017. Best thing I ever did!  My fibroids are almost gone, stomach is flatter now, feels softer, no more stomach problems. It took awhile for my 10 fibroids to shrink but once they did slowly you start feeling better. 

    Don’t suffer and go see your Obgyn for an MRI.  Then look into best options of shrinking them.  There’s a light at the end of the tunnel. Trust me and don’t give up.  Good luck.

    Btw, The reason why I did not have any blood issues is because my fibroids were growing outside of the uterus. When fibroids grow in your uterus that’s when you have heavy bleeding problems. But once your fibroids shrink or completely removed you won’t have any more bleeding issues. So all of that is related to fibroids. Focus on shrinking or removing the fibroids first and the rest of your issues will get better.

    Hi rene45470;

    I am no dr., but from experience, your symptoms are due to fibroids.  Please see your OB/Gyn. so you can being to address this and get some resolution.
