Excessive Farting And Pain In The Right Abdomen?
Lately my stomach often feels uncomfortable like full of discomfort and sometimes it hurts too but I don’t eat anything. And now I often fart excessively and feel pain in the right abdomen.
Hi Dek 'Ghita,
If you experience complaints of excessive gas / farting accompanied by right abdominal pain, stomach discomfort and feeling full, this condition can generally be caused by a disturbance in the digestive tract. Various possible causes include:
Consumption of certain foods (vegetables or fruits that cause gas such as cabbage, collards, broccoli, bananas, apples; soft drinks; milk or dairy products; nuts) Eating or drinking too fast Swallowing air (drinking with a straw, sucking on candy, smoking) Indigestion Lactose intolerance Acid reflux disease Gastric ulcer Inflammation of the large intestine
To reduce the incidence of complaints, the following suggestions you can do at home:
Eat regularly and don't eat late. Eat small portions but frequent (5-6 times a day) Avoid consuming foods that can trigger gas, spicy, fatty or acidic foods Eat and drink slowly Avoid smoking Exercise regularly Minimize stress
However, if the complaint does not get better then it's a good idea to see a doctor so you can find out the cause. The doctor will perform a physical examination and supporting tests (if needed) to explore further. Thus the basic cause can be identified and given appropriate treatment to overcome it.
