Frequently Asked Questions

1. Which doctor should I consult if I have a gas problem?

Consult your general physician if you have abdominal bloating with associated symptoms like vomiting, abdominal pain, black stools, diarrhea and weight loss.

2. Can gas in the stomach or intestines cause a pain?

The gas retention can cause mild and dull pain to sharp and intense.

3. Can bloating cause chest pain?

Sometimes the chest pain is present in patients with bloating, due to the reflux of acidic contents from the stomach into the esophagus.

4. Why do some foods make you feel bloated?

Foods that contain FODMAPs (Fermentable Oligosaccharides Disaccharides and Polyols) are not fully digested before they reach the colon. The bacteria in the colon ferment them to produce gas and can lead to bloating.
