Progressive swelling of lower abdomen, hips, front pubic region

Within the last 24 hours, I have developed a ring of swelling/jiggling on my lower abdomen, the front of my pelvis/pubic area, all the way around my hips and the top portion of my buttocks/lower back. It is very noticeable to other people. This is not a result of physical activity/stress or medications.

I experienced sun poisoning June 30-July 1st. It has been 5 days of recovery.

I'm afraid an organ is struggling, but could it be my lymph system or a very strange form of water retention? Why is it concentrated to my lower abdomen/hips/back? Theres no pain, no redness, nothing firm, no excess gas, I can go to bathroom normally. This also doesn't seem like an allergic reaction and I have eaten all foods I normally eat.

Please help me. I'm 30 year old nonbinary person with female anatomy. I take trilospec/birth control last two and a half months. I took half an oxycodone for pain management last night but the swelling on my abdomen was present before the pain meds.

As I suggested, please go see your doctor, and if you can't get in, go to the ER.

Hormonal changes can cause water retention, but it seems unlikely that birth control pills would cause this as suddenly and extremely as you are describing. In your shoes, I would call the doctor and get in to have your kidney and liver checked, and don't wait. If no doctor can see you, the ER might be an option.
