In brief: Abdominal tightness

The symptoms you describe may come from muscles of abdominal wall which will only come on standing up, but if ypu have upper abdomen discomfort and tightness with a bloated feeling in all positions, it mau be due to gall bladder disease, or gastritis.
It is difficult to comment without takin detailed history and physical exam, and may or mey not need blood test and imaging.So see your doctor for evalua.
