I have been eating approx 1/2 of what I used to eat, however my stomach is even bigger?

I am 59.. weight 280. For 2 weeks I have been eating approx 1/2 of what I used to eat, however my stomach is even more extended than normal and appears to grow daily. My legs and feet are extremely swollen. I recently changed jobs so I am currently without insurance or I would go to doctor. Also I have a red rash from feet to chins. Any thoughts?

there seems to be a generalised hormonal disorder leading to multiple affections.
IBS with stomach infection can cause gaseous distention.
Crohn’s disease with abdominal koch’s should be kept in mind as a differential diagnosis.
get a usg/CT abdomen with contrast done along with a detailed blood investigation profile.

Many possibilities are there ,hormonal disorder as thyroid disorder,liver problem,kidney problem..so you need to get abdominal USG and CT ,blood picture and thyroid profile..

I recommend HCV test + abdominal ultrasound to check for liver fibrosis, also do an HIV test
Good Luck

Swollen limbs.. either a problem in heart, kidney or liver ..

U need to investigate step by step, and losing weight is a must
