looks like eathear u over feed it, or its going to molt soon.. i whould let it be for a lil bit, make sure it has the right requerments..

make sure thears atleast 4 inches of dirt
humidity is between 70-80%
temp is around 85oF
keep the ground a lil moist, but not wet.
try not to feed it for a lil while to see if it gets skinyer. and rember too keepy humidity up incase it molts. ur emp should be ok. i noticed thay get very slugish near molt time.. or mien did atealst..

OK this doesnt look to bad, leave him be, dont stress him to much and keep an eye on it. I have seen quite big bulges on scorps before. and they live on fine. There are verious reasons, internal parasite, humidity to high, feeding proble, i personaly would not worry yet. Has he/she stoped eating
