hi i have what you might call a pregnant belly, i look about 5 months pregnant but after numerous pregnancy tests confirming i am not i am just wondering what is wrong with me. as i said i look pregnant, am extremely tired, my back aches and sometimes i get tingling from my back right down my legs, this has all be happening about 2 weeks now. my stomach is bloated, round and firm and i have what could be described as a bit of pressure, i dont feel sick, but sometimes feel a bit dizzy and its a struggle to get out of bed as im sooooo tired. i googled symptoms but what i saw made me cry and so panicky as ovarian cancer came up, what do you think this could be???

Welcome to ehealthforum,
It is difficult to comment on the cause for your symptoms and pregnancy status without examining you and going ahead with further evaluation. Do not ignore your symptoms if they have been persistent. Visit your doctor/gynecologist for examination and further evaluation (with investigations like blood/serum HCG levels, ultrasound scan, tumor marker tests) to look for the underlying cause. Further management and treatment options would be suggested based on the examination findings and investigation results. Consider being in regular monitoring and follow-up with your treating doctor/gynecologist and report any new/abnormal symptoms immediately. Drink plenty of water. Take adequate rest.
Take care.
