Im experiencing pain and bloating (distended stomach) to the point that I had to change out of my clothes. For the last 9 hours, the pain has continued, moving to the center and through to my back, under the right shoulder blade. I"m sitting in bed but I'm not comfortable. Of course, my first thought was gas.... ginger tea, chamomile tea, caraway seeds...all the natural remedies for gas, but no relief. My father and uncle both died from abdominal aortic aneurysms...but women aren't candidates for that, normally. I'm not sure how long to wait to seek help. No insurance and not inclined to go to the emergency room....
