I have another newbie question...
Does gas/bloating cause your abdomen to feel hard? (Unfortunately my stomach is not the ideal six pack....) But yesterday I noticed that it seemed hard! I left the DR office and went to lunch. Later in the day I noticed this. It has been less than 24 hours, but it seems wierd. I would think if it were anything major, the doc would have noticed or said something. Actually, he thought there was improvement in my symptoms!
I have noticed signifigant changes in bowels lately, doc mentioned IBS (ughhh). Just wondered if anyone else had this.
I will be having the scope soon, so hopefully that will shed some light on the situation.

This doesn't help you much except to know you are not alone.  I guess misery loves company!  (By the way, don't worry about not having a six pack.  Not too many people do!)
Good luck on your scope.

Hi Marxxx tongue

I think everyone at some point in their life has had a case of indigestion, heartburn or abdominal bloating.  However, when it gets to be something that is interferring in your normal everyday life it really becomes a problem.  I know that my constant upset stomachs from the GERD caused some bloating and a hard type feeling with my stomach, too!  Though this could be from other things - Here's a link that I thought explained this well!

Hoping you feel better soon!

Hugs, Teri tongue
