Benzo Belly - Please Help « on: December 04, 2020, 10:20:51 am »
Does anybody have any reassuring advice regarding benzo belly?
I’ve got a whole list of symptoms, but my worst one is my poor belly. I have it real bad.
I’ve put seven inches onto my waistline and look like I have a ten-pin bowling ball in my stomach, or that I’m eight months pregnant. And it hurts – and sometimes I struggle to breathe because of it.
No matter what I do it’s constantly inflamed and feels like it will burst some days.
I’ve been to my doctor who can’t find anything wrong but was alarmed by how much it’s distended. It doesn’t seem to be getting any […], and if anything is slowly getting bigger. It’s really embarrassing to go out looking like this, as the rest of me is pretty much normal, or as I used to look, but I have this massive gut that sticks out a mile.
And it’s rock hard to the touch – sometimes it really freaks me out – it’s not normal.
I’ll be off benzos for two years this coming January – and I’ve got a lot more healing to do, but can someone relate to my problem or give me hope that my stomach will eventually settle down and return to its normal size?
If I have to remain like this for the rest of my life it’s going to be a bit depressing and humiliating.
Here’s hoping for some replies.
