Flatulence can be caused by various causes. From the situation that your mother experienced, it might be caused by GERD. GERD or gastric acid recovery is a condition where there is an increase in stomach acid toward the throat. GERD is more common in overweight people, a history of consuming alcohol or certain drugs, and often lies down immediately after eating. GERD can cause symptoms such as discomfort in the chest area, heartburn, bloating, bitter mouth, nausea. GERD requires treatment using certain stomach medications for a certain period of time. GERD is actually not a dangerous thing.
other than that your mother's condition can also be caused by other causes such as:
inflammation of the stomach wall
therefore, to ascertain the cause of your mother's condition, it is better for your mother to see herself directly to the doctor, so the doctor can examine your mother's condition further. Maybe later additional tests will be carried out such as blood or ultrasound examination if deemed necessary.
It is recommended that your mother does not lie down immediately after eating, eat on a regular schedule, avoid consuming any drugs, avoid consuming alcohol and cigarettes.
