Over the last 2 1/2 years or so I have had two "bouts" with a bloated problem. As soon as I eat I feel like I have eaten a huge meal even if I eat a small amount. It lasts a week or maybe two and then goes away. A couple of weeks ago this started again and I feel the problem in the stomach area and then my abdominal area fees really full and bloated just really uncomfortable. Keep in mind that this has only happened twice in 2 1/2 yrs. with this being the third time.
I know myself well enough to know that when I start having a problem that is unusual I start worrying about it and then it gets progressively worse and IF I decide to finally go on to the doctor they can't find anything and then it goes away. I'm not a hypocondriac but an a worrier.
Now I've decided that bloating is a sign of ovarian cancer. I have had some minor pain in the ovary area but not often. I'm almost 60 so it isn't ovulation. My friend laughs at the fact that I am a pessimist and always think of the worst case scenario and never realize that it could be as an ovarian cyst .......not necessarily cancer.
My husband and I did start working out five days a week on 2/1 and it was a few weeks after that this all of this started. I am heavier that I should be (was about 180 lbs. now 169) and sometimes I feel like the problem is all weight related but my weight has been steady for 7 years or more.
Can anyone give me any ideas as to what is going on???? I'm quite scared now.
