Question
My daughter eats very healthy, exercises a ton, plays soccer college, and for some reason has developed a bloated, hard stomach. She constantly looks like she is 4 months pregnant. She is not, doesn't beleive in sex before marriage and has been to several doctors for this and all the can tell her is its probably irritable bow syndrome. The pills they have given have not helped, in fact just make her stomach gurggle constantly. Any ideas what this could be and what she could do to resolver her issue. She is extremely self conscious about it too.

Detailed Answer:
Hi
As per your query,your daughter's abdomen looks distended.
Her diet has to be checked.she should take high fiber diet,fresh fruits.
It is good that she is playing soccer.
But,she has to do abdominal exercises.
There will be no distension of this type in IBS.
You didnot mention her age, height and weight.
Get an ultrasound abdomen,plain x XXXXXXX abdomen and rule out any problem inside.
If you come back with the reports,i will clarify further.
Wish her good health
Regards
