No, excessive farting or flatulence is rarely a symptom of an actual medical disorder or health problem.

Sometimes, excessive farting can occur due to conditions like Hypothyroidism, Irritable Bowel syndrome, etc.

But in most cases, excessive farting is due to diet. You should implement changes to your diet by avoiding foods like beans, lettuce, turnip, cabbages, excessive coffee and cold drinks, etc. You can also take OTC antacids like Gelusil swhich contains Simethicone.
