The feeling of being bloated is a feeling of fullness or tightness in your abdomen. There may be pain, gas, and belching associated with this. When you palpate your stomach, it might feel hard. The presence of nausea, vomiting, heartburn, and trouble swallowing along with bloating may indicate a digestive disorder and is unlikely to be a one-off incident.
A gastroenterologist should be consulted if you frequently feel bloated. A gastrointestinal specialist can treat complex gastrointestinal conditions that may be causing your bloating.
The gastroenterologist will find out the underlying cause of bloating since there are many possible causes. A medical history review and questions about your diet, lifestyle, and symptoms will be conducted. There may be a physical exam and some tests ordered by the doctor, such as blood work, ultrasound, X-rays, or CT scans.
By performing a physical examination in your doctor’s office, your doctor can generally diagnose the cause of your bloating. During the interview, they will ask questions about your symptoms and your doctor will ask if you’re prone to occasional bloating or if it’s constant.
There is usually no need to worry about temporary bloating. You may need to have other tests done if it occurs frequently; a scan of your abdomen may be included in these tests. X-rays or CT scans may be needed to identify the cause of the bloating.
It is common to experience abdominal bloating. Bloating is a problem that many people experience repeatedly. The presence of predictable bloating is not normally a cause for concern and stems from a variety of different occurrences.
It is common for bloating to be caused by a buildup of gas in the stomach or intestines. It may feel mildly uncomfortable to intensely painful when you have bloating caused by gas. It has been reported that some people feel as if there is something trapped inside their stomachs.
Indigestive discomfort or pain, sometimes called dyspepsia, is characterized by bloating in the stomach. Indigestion is common among most people from time to time.
An infection in the stomach can lead to bloating. Among these are bacteria such as Escherichia coli and Helicobacter pylori, as well as viruses like norovirus and rotavirus. After a few days, stomach infections usually disappear on their own. It is possible, however, for some people to become severely dehydrated or to continue to deteriorate over a period of time.
Bloating can be caused by a monthly period or menopause, among other gynecological problems. Bloating, cramping, and stomach pain can also occur as a result of endometriosis, which occurs when the womb lining attaches to the stomach or intestines.
As long as your symptoms eventually disappear, they aren’t serious. Nevertheless, if you are experiencing symptoms of a serious illness, including fever or vomiting, or if your bloated stomach does not go away, you should seek medical assistance.
The presence of frequent indigestion and bloating that is unrelated to food or appears to be caused by something more serious may signal something more serious is going on. There are potentially serious causes, such as stomach ulcers and stomach cancer.
There are many ways to experience fast relief of bloating symptoms, their effectiveness will depend on the cause and severity of your bloating. The benefits of exercising include a reduction in bloating and a reduction in gas buildup. You may also be able to benefit from posture adjustment. Try to stay active throughout the day to avoid retaining more gas when lying on your back. A number of over-the-counter enzymes are available to help your digestive system digest dairy products and legumes (such as beans). In the colon, poorly digested carbohydrates cause stomach bloating, which can be avoided by altering your diet.
