I am experiencing an unusual amount "gas accumulation" over the last month.
I have not tried anything, but I am concerned. When a car start to burn oil, there is a problem with the engine.
Greetings, Is there any other symptom? pain ? How is stool? Is there any significant past illness?Regards.
I have high blood pressure,and takes medication for same.
Thank you for the input. Gas can be due to reflux or acid peptic disease. Sometimes reflux is added with H.pylori infection. In some cases heart disease like ischemia can produce sympXXXXX XXXXXke gas in upper abdomen. Gall bladder disease can also be a factor. Malabsorption, irritable bowel syndrome can also cause bloating & gas. H.pylori test, ultrasonography, endoscopy can be needed to confirm the diagnosis. i would suggest to get an examination by doctor. A few dietary measures help to control gas. Some vegetables like cabbage, radish and beans can produce excess gas. Excess sugar or sweets can cause gas production. You can withhold the selective food for time being ans see whether it helps or not.Take plenty of water. Avoid coffee, tobacco, alcohol, fried fatty food etc. Daily exercise help to regulate bowel movement, it improves bowel movement and prevents gas formation and helps in absorption of gas. Try to reduce anxiety and tension. Sometimes bacterial overgrowth may be the cause. Till you get appointment with the doctor you can take Gas-X to control gas absorption and Nexium for acidity. Any query, please feel free to ask. It will be my privilege to assist you. Regards.
