hi i hope someone can help me with the problems i am having. i have a lot of swelling in my feet and ankles from arthritis but the main thing that is bothering me is my stomach is swollen so bad it looks like i am about 5 months pregnant. i have gone to several doctors for my kidneys, heart and i am not sure where to go from here. my liver is good and all my major organs but i am thinking maybe its my intestines or gallbladder or something. please i appreciate any help you can give me.
