Swelling of abdomen and breast. Hormone levels, ultrasound, colonoscopy, endoscopy reports normal. What else is the reason?

Hi- I have had a swollen abdomen for about a year now. It was swollen for about six months and then around Christmas my breast started to swell as well. I have been tested for everything imaginable. Hormone levels, viatimin defficiency, ect. I have had bacteria build up test ect. and have been tested for everything related to GI. Everything is negative. In addition, I have had an ultra sound , an endoscopy , and colonoscoply. Everything came back negative. Everything. What else can I do, something is wrong. and the swelling is in my upper body only.

Thanks for writing to us.
Such asymptomatic swelling without any detectable cause is likely to be due to mild venous congestion. Decreasing the salt intake in the diet, avoiding taking any laxatives and avoiding dehydration will be helpful.
I hope this information has been both informative and helpful for you.
