Feeling sick all the time

I feel blotted and swelled in my stomach and feel like I have something sitting on my chest

  1. If something bothers me like that I take a pill to calm myself down. Then I'll call my doctor and ask.


    1. Hi Sherry t, and thanks for your post. I am sorry to hear you are feeling this way (bloated), and that you are feeling pressure in your chest. You also did say that you re feeling this way (sick), 'all the time'.
      If these feelings are persisting, or even getting worse, you may want to discuss it with your physician. What do you think?
      Wishing you well,

      1. Hi j@Sherrytust read tha inflated lungs can cause that bloated or pressurized feeling also get your liver out if it is enlarged. Alpha 1 and COPD have a connection.

        1. Hello Sherry T
          I have had stomach bloating for the last for years since I was released from the hospital four years ago. My Drs. are not sure If it's the medication or what I am eating. I believe it could be a little of both. All I know is that I hate it.
          It definitely interferes with breathing from my diaphragm, and I find that breathing from the diaphragm does make breathing easier when things get really bad. It can even be used all of the time with practice.
