I was curious to know if anyone else who is on Opioid therapy has symptoms of a swollen stomach from time to time?
For the past several weeks I've been dealing with an unusually swollen gut, in fact I can feel it when I put my hand over my stomach. It's quite unnerving to say the least. At first I thought it was due to constipation but I have had no real issues there.
I also have been having really bad heartburn GERD symptoms. In fact I've had several bouts of abdominal pain that shot through my chest into my jaw. Fortunately it wasn't cardiac but I still have no idea what's going on and thought that maybe it was a side effect of being on long term Opioid therapy. IE; everything slows down
