ok

it is suggestive of constipation.

Doctor :  
do you feel a tight abdomen or a increase in the diameter of the abdomen or any swelling over abdomen?
User :   sometimes, it comes and goes at random, often it's all of the left side, the past 48 HRs it moved to the center of my stomach, then tomy right side, then now as we are talking it was in the center my stomach and has moved to the left side
Doctor :   It is suggestive of bloating and excessive Gas formation due to constipation.
User :   My understanding is this would be due to lack of exercise and or physical activity?
Doctor :  
yes,very much.
Doctor :  
and also due to smoking and improper dietary intake.
User :   would this also cause cold chills, or a feeling of panic? sometimes I can be sitting here at the computer and for no known reason to me feel pnaicky or emotionally upset. and be doing something as simple as reading.
Doctor :  
no, not necessarily.
User :   Sometimes I wonder if I may have turned into a hypercondriac, from experiencing so many strange symptoms, such as the bloating, pains, stiffness in random area's of the body, the sensation of heart beating heavily, and feeling like my body is swaying along with the rythm of the heart beat but obviously sitting motionless.
Doctor :  
you need to indulge into physical activities in order for effective metabolism.
Doctor :  
how is your social life?
