Moving lump in the middle of upper abdomen
OctButterfly posted:
For the past couple of months I've noticed a lump in my center upper abdomen that bulges out when I lay down or recline. It sometimes rises up and bulges out of my skin for a few seconds, then drops back down. It is not painful, even when I press on it. Today I noticed that when I lay down and press on the area, I can slightly feel it even when it isn't bulging. [br>[br>I've had problems with nausea the past couple of months as well. For awhile it occurred every day, but it hasn't been as bad the past few weeks. I had an ultrasound of my gallbladder and pancreas that was normal. I didn't go in for further testing because I assumed it had something to do with my menstrual cycles returning after breastfeeding for a year. [br>[br>I'm 26 and have problems with anxiety and depression so I'm taking Celexa and Wellbutrin. 2 pregnancies. I have scoliosis and a "regular" irregular heartbeat. That's it for my medical history.
