Golf ball size swelling in abdomen for a few seconds

A strange thing has happened to me and I wonder if anybody can shed some light on it.

On a couple of occasions while just laying in bed, after waking up, what I can best desribe as a swelling the size of a golf ball occurred located in my lower abdomen not far from the right hip. It came and went in a few seconds, and there was no pain. Made me think it was feces or gas passing along in the large intestine, but why this tempoary golf ball like swelling?

I would imagine if it were gas or bowels expanding an area that large there would be some sort of pain or you would pass gas. Perhaps look up symptoms for a tape worm? I don't mean to scare you but this seems really abnormal.

I have been sick for over a month. Same stomach will bloat til I look like I'm pregnant, it's horrible. I also have chronic nausea. Today I had an endoscope, it showed that my stomach was really red/irritated and I had a biopsy done.

Have you tried any of the drugs like Nexium? Have you had an ultrasound?

Hope you feel better!

Scout316, that sounds like a ventral hernia.
