Thanks for asking query on HCM. As you have mentioned you are suffering from chronic hepatitis B and not on antivirals, but you have not given details of your liver function tests or viral load. Your description of recent symptoms could be due to two main reasons - fluid in the abdomen or due to dyspepsia/flatulence problems. So you would require atleast ultrasound of the abdomen to rule out chronic liver disease/ascites along with LFT. If normal it could be becauses of dyspepsia for which treatment is simple.

Take care.
