rapid weight gain in belly

in the past several months (starting early may) I have had ongoing strange symptoms. It started with left lower back pain (tingling sensation) which still persist. After a few weeks it radiated to left lower abdomen in which I still have pain. Next started migraines, (which I have never had) that left as suddenly as they started after a few weeks. Now my belly is so huge and swollen, I look about 6 months pregnant. I have gained 25 lbs in 2 months and is all in my stomach. I now have leg pain and my lower legs, ankles and feet are swelling. My periods are very normal and regular. The selling and distended stomach have bothered more than anything. I also have extreme fatigue and increased urination. I have appointments in up coming weeks with family physician  and gyn . Has anyone had similar symptoms or ideas of what may be going on?

I've never heard of these symptoms especially while still having a period (so I guess you aren't pregnant?). Good luck at your appt and please share the results-I'd like to know in case ever in the same situation.

I'm going to Dr on Thursday. I have gained 5 more pounds in the past few days and am now dizzy also.
