Hello Anonymous,

Welcome to EmpowHER. Thank you for reaching out to our community.

Have you been seen or spoken with your primary care physician about this?

Some of the most common causes of abdominal swelling include overeating and gas. Swallowing air as part of a nervous habit or from eating foods that are high in fiber can lead to gas production. If you don’t release this gas, it can lead to abdominal swelling.

Irritable bowel syndrome, lactose intolerance, and ascites can cause swelling or edema in the abdomen.
