I have a rock hard stomach and bloating. I look about 8

Customer Question
I have a rock...

I have a rock hard stomach and bloating. I look about 8 months pregnant. I am able to have bowel movements as long as I take a stool softener. I have issues with acid in my stomach. Right now it hurts to sit and when I stand my stomach is huge

Doctor's Assistant: How long has this been bothering you? Are you experiencing any vomiting or nausea?

Every month after my period my stomach does this until my next period. I don’t think it had anything to do with it. Been going on for almost a year. I am under stress with my marriage. This morning I felt like I wanted to vomit and sick to my stomach. I am also getting a sharp pain in lower stomach

Doctor's Assistant: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?

Well diabetes, auto immune disease, stomach issues are fimiliars in family history

No today is the worse it has been. Usually I am able to take something to help me with gas and bowel movements and get relief but still swollen and rock hard
Customer reply replied 5 months ago
My mother has had stomach surgery and a colostomy bag some years back. Colon issues are also a familiar in the family

Any suggestions on how to handle this until I can go to dr
OB GYN Doctor: Dr. Chip, General practice replied 5 months ago

OK

This sounds like an H pylori bacterial stomach infection

For now I suggest oral probiotics, a tablespoon of apple cider vinegar in a glass of water twice a day, and either Pepcid AC or Prilosec

That should help out for now

But you need a screening from your doctor since you may need a course of oral antibiotics

Please let me know if you need any more information

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.
