What causes gas build up

Common Questions and Answers about What causes gas build up


Avatar_m_tn The brain and body produce gases that need to escape via the '<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>gas</span> hole'. What happens if this hole is swollen to the extent that the gases become trapped. Reason I ask is because I experience a dizzy painful headache until I build up huge amounts of pressure to eventually pass wind after which headache resides. Im inforned that the swelling is due to type 2 hemmoroids.
Avatar_f_tn I have been having <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>gas</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>build</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>up</span> for many years. It is embarrassing that I have to expel it and ofcourse I am not around others at that time as I make sure to move when that time occurs. I'll have some coffee in the morning as work. I use a lactose free creamer and just a dash of caffeine but predominantly caffeine free coffee. Then the coffee for the rest of the morning is entirely caffeine free. I seldom have milk. I seldom have soda. These are things I used to consume all the time.
Avatar_n_tn Sounds like it <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>gas</span> pains. Medications can for sure cause constipation, which in turn <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>causes</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>gas</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>build</span>, and is probably whats happening. I would mention these side effects to your doctor and see if they can either switch your medications, or give you something to help.
Avatar_n_tn As the day goes on, I <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>build</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>up</span> more and more <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>gas</span>. It's really bad because I work sitting down. I'm scheduled to see my PCP this week to discuss treating my stomach and to do a stress test. All the over the counter meds haven't worked for me, including Tums, Prilosec OTC, Pepsid AC, gas-X, stool softeners. One more reason why I know it's my stomach and not my lungs/heart...
Avatar_m_tn It is unusual for a <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>gas</span> bubble to last that long. Your surgeon probably used a long lasting gas, C3F8. This is not used in eyes with lenses place since a cataract will develop or progress unless you had a very complicated detachment or there was some other reason. The progression from -2.5 to -7.5 diopters is due to the cataract. The result of your cataract surgery will depend on the ability of the retina to see well. Many patient do not recover normal vision after a retinal detachment.
Avatar_n_tn The problem is enzymes in your stomach are not breaking down your food correctly. You need to <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>build</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>up</span> good probiotic enzymes in your stomach and help break down your consumed food better and drink more water. Water should be 1 glass more that the daily recommended eight 8oz cups. Yogurt is a good source of probiotic enzymes. You may need more that just yogurt, but practice protions and watch your food combinations, keep a journal.
1322157_tn?1279660281 Sometimes, when my back is hurting a little more than usual (let's say I've been cooking for a few hours as I did yesterday), I will sit and rest my legs on an ottoman. Then I begin to feel what I can only describe as <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>gas</span> bubbles popping in my back (always lumbar where my issues are). They do not increase the pain - but I can feel it popping. If I were to describe the bubble popping feeling, it would be like when you are pregnant (and I am NOT..
170935_tn?1225374676 you know now that i read all these comments here i think that is exactly what happens to me, after i eat i feel the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>gas</span> push <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>up</span> on my chest and that makes me get PVCs, and now that i am 2 months prego it's even worse..I am going to go see a gas doc instead of my cardiologist becuase he did EKG and blood work and a h.monitor and he said he found nothing wrong, that it could be dew to my pregnancy, and now he does not want to do more test untill after the baby....
Avatar_n_tn There is no pain associated with the bouts, just the need to pass the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>gas</span>, to relieve to <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>build</span>-<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>up</span>, as it were. When I am plagued by these bouts of <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>gas</span>, I do notice, however, that my bowel movements tend to be more "sticky" and not well formed (flaky...some formed, the sticky part when cleaning myself up, and some flakes). The color is usually a medium to dark brown (twice, many months apart during bouts I noticed the stool had a greenish color.
Avatar_n_tn I have real bad <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>gas</span> and I don't know what to do about it. I pass <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>gas</span> and don't know it untill someone passes by saying what's that smell. I don't want to sit by anyone I hate going out in public. I have got so that I'm losing my hair worrying about this.
148354_tn?1211237506 These are the proteins my body chose to <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>build</span> antibodies to. So far. <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>causes</span> bloating, <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>gas</span>, pain, diarrhea, etc. For about 3 days after I eat it. And can from 30 min to a day to start to hurt. I have to be super careful and read labels. Natural flavoring can be anything. Even then, I still can suffer if a part of the food was ran on same machines. Grain elevators, the grill, serving spoon used on multiple items. The adhesions pull things unnaturally and cause radiant pain in back, hips, legs.
6711072_tn?1384014853 I wish I could at least smell what others smell but I can't and its incredibly frustrating. I'm so stressed out and I know that <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>causes</span> the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>gas</span> to be released too, but its hard for me to control my stress level. I thought once or if I could get the excessive gas under control then the smell would go away, but now I see that I have leaky gas also makes it worse and I won't know if its controlled. Its like a lose/lose situation.
Avatar_n_tn If I am sitting <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>up</span> in bed and have <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>gas</span> it is clearly coming from both ends. You know if you have regular <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>gas</span> you would at least have time to walk out of the room, but with this you don't. I want to hide from the world. Please help me and guide me as what to do next. I am totally at a loss.
407149_tn?1211736107 I, too, would like to know what <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>causes</span> this. It is very annoying, considering that the smell of <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>gas</span>/exhaust makes me nauseous.
Avatar_f_tn My husband has liver transplant last 2007, his present ultrasound say that he has <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>gas</span> and ascites in pancreas, does any one has the same result, what does it mean and what is the cure? he also have spleenomygally even before the transplant, but the surgeon does not advice to remove during the transplant, because that time his body is still weak. this time the dr said it is possible now to remove the spleen ir better he will just wait for the new meds Sovaldi to arrive in our country.
Avatar_m_tn I also found out that chewing maalox would really immediately help with burping and <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>gas</span> (well, you will burp even more for a few minutes till the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>gas</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>build</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>up</span> is gone). Try and get out and exercise. It really helps with the stress.
Avatar_m_tn Taking in too much air thru our mouths can do it, very specific foods can cause major gas issues, not releasing gasses naturally from your body when you are supposed to will do it...and worry and anxiety will also do it causing gasses to <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>build</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>up</span> in your stomach and yes traveling to the chest area. Call the doc Fahad and ask them for a prescription and tell them this is becoming too uncomfortable...
1180636_tn?1264005352 The main problem I have now is <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>gas</span>, I have changed my diet to help reduce <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>gas</span> but still get a lot of <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>build</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>up</span>, this is a big problem as now I cannot pass gas without going to the toilet. This problem affects me mostly in the evening and during the night; I can’t remember the last time I had a good night sleep without dosing myself with painkillers and alcohol just to get a decent rest.
Avatar_f_tn Have you considered seeing a Naturopathic doctor. There could be increased intestinal fermentations caused by an imbalance in the intestinal flora e.g. too much underlying fungal, bacterial or parasitic infections. When you eat food that ferments a gas production occurs which can cause a build up of gas in the abdomen but also can cause "splenic flexure syndrome" in which gas in the bowel leads to pain in the lower chest or left shoulder.
Avatar_n_tn This happens to me right before and during my peroid ... I w inder y ?!
Avatar_n_tn My heart problems were misdiagnosed for 12 months as a stomach disorder because I only received chest pains after eating. After a <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>build</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>up</span> of <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>gas</span> and releasing it, the pains seemed to subside considerably. One of the symptoms I gave the cardiologists on the day of my Heart attacks was "lots of wind". The digestive system required a large amount of oxygen to digest food and this is what triggered my heart attacks in the end. It stands to reason that there is a link between the two.
Avatar_n_tn Then, this irregular beating in my chest scares me and <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>causes</span> anxiety, then the viscous cycle repeats. The anxiety <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>causes</span> more chest pain, more <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>gas</span>, and more discomfort. I have been trying everything to treat myself. Changed my diet (was drinking lots of soda and taking NSAID pain relievers every day) for the most part, but due to my work schedule I do eat too much fast food to this day. I drink nothing but water now, I have been watching everything I do.
Avatar_f_tn He is dead asleep and it wakes him <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>up</span> and angers him. I dont remember what I say or what I do, all I can remember is somthing attacked me and there is nothing there. I am in tears ya'll! I have been crying for the past hour because Im not sure whats happening to me. I dont have sleep problems, never did. I dont drink or take drugs. I am not stressed, matter of fact I am happy and today we went to the park.
Avatar_n_tn I came cross this because I was looking for answers for my 22 yr old daughter,she has painfull <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>gas</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>build</span>,diahrea,she throws <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>up</span> sometimes and when she dose it has a god awfull smell(im talking when she throws up too). This also comes on a week or two before that time of month. I dont know what to do for her. Oh she also gets pale white and a fever. If anyone kniws what this is and knows what to do please let me know.
Avatar_f_tn absolutely, hbv cannot be eradicated but only controlled, do make 48weeks of interferon and if your hbsag decreases (it means you are eradicating hbv) you might go on for 2 years until hbsag negative, but only 11% have hbsag decreasing i do suggest to add alinia off label, see all posts in the forum about alinia (nitazoxanide), it might increase chances to get rid of hbsag for ever when you finish interferon start entecavir or tenofovir if hbsag is still positive because if you take no drug
Avatar_m_tn I noticed I had some mild burning in my chest and middle of my back the past few days now and I been taking Zegerid Otc for the acid but that didn't stop me from eating poorly and this last bout really hit me hard so I cut off everything that can produce <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>gas</span> but I'm still feeling the pains off and on when ever I feel a <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>gas</span> flair <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>up</span> then it goes away for a breif amount of time.
Avatar_n_tn ) the few times I drink coffee on a weekend (maybe once in a blue moon), i don't hiccup-burp but i'm also not sitting...i'm usually moving about. could it be that sitting is probably allowing some <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>gas</span> to <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>build</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>up</span> causing the reaction? it's weird. i'm not embarrassed by it, it's kinda funny...keeps me and my colleagues entertained (one guy tells me to "lay off the bottle" lol). but it is nice to know i'm not the only one. btw, i am lactose intolerant as most of you seem to be too.
Avatar_n_tn I have a number of questions. Firstly, what are the typical <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>causes</span> of a problem such as mine? Are any of these serious illnesses, for which early treatment is important? If this is the case, then I will pay to have the camera thing done asap. I am most concerned about the time I'm likely to have to wait for this, as I've been suffering with this problem for around ten weeks already. Secondly, I read in some of the other discussions, you can have an ultrasound and CT scans performed.
