Patient :Hello, I am a 25 yr old female, and I am having a sporadic ballooning sensation in my lower right abdomen. It is accompanied with excessive gas after eating. Every couple minutes it feels as though a small balloon is being inflated in the same spot, causing intense pressure, then quickly subsides. It can also be described as feeling like a giant bubble is moving through that area. The sensation woke me up in the middle of the night. The pressure/discomfort only occurs everytime this "ballooning" sensation happens, not in between. Although, I feel a slight discomfort if I apply firm pressure to the area.
