Q: What does it mean if your tummy is hard and tight

Doctor

A:   Hi,
Thanks for the query.

I understand your concern.
Hard feeling and bloating sensation of the abdomen can be seen in conditions like gastritis, gastroenteritis, constipation, premenstrual syndrome, ovarian cysts or masses, intestinal obstruction etc.
If the symptoms persist, better to consult your doctor once and get evaluated.
By clinical examination and ultrasound, the possible cause of your problem can be identified and treated.

Take care
