Rare condition that causes the center of my abdomen to puff up or bulge. It is about the size of a hot dog bun. No pain. Happens during crunches?

Diastasis Rectii: The rectus abdominis ("6-pack")muscles are normally fused in the midline. If they separate from one another, a tent-shaped protrusion is evident in the midline when contracting these muscles. The strong (but thin) tissue that envelopes these muscles, called fascia, remains intact; therefore, there is no hole (like a hernia) and surgery is not necessary. Great description! ...Read more

Bowel change: Since this is a change in your usual bowel pattern, it shouldn't be ignored and a colonoscopy may be in order. Your stools suggest recent constipation and if increasing fluid intake and fiber or Metamucil in your daily diet doesn't get you back to normal regularity, it's important to be evaluated by a gastroenterologist. If you haven't had a screening colonoscopy, this is a good time to get one. ...Read more

I have frequent heart burn, sharp pains in random places across my abdomen and rare heat flashes, could they just be from the heart burn?

Depending on the severity of the pain, imaging of your belly may be required, either through scans or endoscopy. Bottom line is that you need to talk with your physician as more information and testing is needed. ...Read more
