Diagnoses help: My stomach has been so distended that I look pregnant/very fatigued

Posted by @anxious6 in About Kids & Teens, Feb 19, 2013


For the past week (at least) my stomach has been extremely distended and hard, to the point that I look very pregnant. I'm only 17 and have always been very slim, with a very flat stomach, and now I have this big bulge in front of me. I thought that it was just regular bloating that would last a few hours a day, except that it's there 24/7, I haven't changed my diet, and it has yet to go away.

Other than that, I've been extremely tired lately but have no other symptoms (and everything bathroom wise has been in check so I don't think it's just gas bloating, either.)

During my last cycle and maybe even a week or so after, I had extreme unspecific pains on the right side of my stomach, to the point that I was waking myself up in the middle of the night and couldn't fall back asleep. I've also been having dizzy spells (although it's been a week or two since my last one) where all of the sudden I just feel nauseous and everything starts spinning, but it will pass after 30 or so minutes.

I have no clue what's wrong with me, my stomach has never been so extended before and I have an appointment with the family doctor tomorrow. There's no way that I'm pregnant (heh, trust me) and I'm just freaking myself out by reading all of the possibilities online.

Anyways, if you have ANY idea what this could be, I'd love to share it with the doctor tomorrow! All help and/or advice is welcome and appreciated!
