Symptoms Of Excessive Gas In The Stomach

Excessive gas can be uncomfortable and embarrassing, but it’s usually nothing to worry about. It’s a normal part of digestion, but sometimes it can occur more often or be more noticeable. In some cases, it may even be a sign of a medical condition.

If you experience excessive gas, it’s important to know the symptoms. According to Medicinenet, common symptoms of excessive gas include burping, farting, abdominal pain or cramps, bloating, an increase in abdominal size, constipation, changes in weight, vomiting, nausea, and heartburn.

If you experience several of these symptoms and they’re accompanied by other digestive issues, it might be a sign of a more serious underlying condition. Some of the more common causes of excessive gas include food intolerances, irritable bowel syndrome (IBS), small intestinal bacterial overgrowth (SIBO), lactose intolerance, and fructose malabsorption.

Certain foods and drinks can also make gas worse, especially if you’re sensitive to them. These include beans and legumes, dairy products, onions, broccoli, cabbage, cauliflower, apples, prunes, and carbonated drinks.
