Protruding muscles in upper abdomen

I'm 42yrs and have 4 kids. My youngest is 3yrs. I look like I'm 4 months pregnant, I'm 100% positive I'm not. My stomach will get very tight and hard in between my rib cage to the touch. I have no heartburn.  I do burp alot,I mean alot. I'm thinking I may have digestive problems. When I lay down and lift up my head I can see my muscles protude in my stomach. It's very depressing. Do I need surgery to fix the muscles? What would cause the muscles to protrude?

Maybe you have a hernia. My mother had the same problems and she went to a doctor and found out she had one. The doctor said they don't go away on their own, you need surgery. My mom had a surgery earlier this year and so far doing a lot better. But the symptoms you described sound exactly like my moms.
Good luck and hope you feel better!
