Hello everyone. After years of random symptoms on and off, a doctor finally decided to to Physical examination of my abdomen, sent me for a CT scan which revealed MP. Apparently I presented as someone with diastasis recti in the upper abdomen.
I am waiting on a chat with a gastroenterologist in 3 weeks and don't know what the future holds.
I also have an uncommon adipose disorder called lipoedema which causes inflammation and pain.
Ì would be happy to interact with this group as I feel very alone with this. I live in rural Queensland Australia where there is the Aussie pervading She'll be right mate" attitude.
I have symptoms which are getting worse right now which my doctor believes aren't related to MP.
My upper abdomen in very distended and painful when pressed. I get niggly pain down the right side at random times, but a lot of pain across the middle back.
Sometimes I feel queasy, though not nauseous and have recently experienced a bit of heartburn in the evenings.
I'm also fatigued ALL the time and sometimes find it hard to catch my breath. Today I'm at our local markets, sorting to write this post, as my head is fuzzy, affecting my walking.
I have had a lot of bariatric procedures over the past 20 years, and sometimes I feel some pressure on the back of my larynx when lying or bending over.
I am keen to join the facebook group of its still operational a there's not much support out here.
Thanks for reading.

Forgot to mention that I've had IBS type symptoms for years which took a turn for the worse in 2015, embarrassingly resulting in chronic diarrhoea and an incontinent bowel sometimes through the night, and a couple of times at work. Thankfully that side of things has settled somewhat, though still problemsome.
