HI,

I’m bloated and having lots of discomfort in my abdomen. It is another very concerning symptom.

It hurts a little to press against my gut in the area of where my belt would be. Yesterday, I had a very stressful moment, and I think it triggered this overnight.

Is this normal? Is this what is called benzo belly?

Benzo belly can be caused by lots of things.
Muscle spasms in the gut, inflammation of the stomach lining & bowels, hiatal hernia.

That’s in addition to overall sensitivities that can be caused by hormones run amok, a virus that impacts the gut or just plain old indigestion.

If you continue to have stomach pain, especially if you haven’t yet had your appendix removed, I’d book an appointment with a gastro just to make sure. The gastro’s I’ve met have all been fairly supportive, and fairly benzo wise.
