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.
