    Hi Telia -

     

    I know this is a very old question, but I wanted to ensure that someone from our staff answered you, even after all this time!

     

    I'm not a doctor and can't diagnose your issues, but after I doing some research, I found that usually when you have a hard stomach with bloating it's a sign that you are suffering from constipation and/or gas. This could be caused by something in your diet (food or drink), and it will usually go away if you change your diet. It can also be a sign of irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) or, in very rare cases, stomach cancer.  Your doctor is the only who can diagnose the issue definitively.

     

    Here are some links on acid reflux you might find useful.  Be well!

      Mine does the same thing. I look preg ALL the time. I went to the doctor and it was discovered that I have an ulcer and this causes stomache bloat. He put me on a prevpac to heal the ulcer. Ive only been on the medication for 2 days and I can begin to tell it is helping with the bloat. It may be something you might want to look into. Also I have cut out diet soda. This also was causing major bloat.

       

      Hope this helps. I know how horrible this condition can be.
