Hello, thank you for the question to HealthReplies.com
Flatulence can be caused by several possibilities, including:
eating too much or eating too fast eating too fatty foods or eating foods that contain a lot of gas consumption of alcohol or excessive caffeine constipation gastrointestinal infections food allergies deficiency of certain digestive enzymes IBS lactose intolerance intestinal inflammation gastroparesis other causes such as the presence of fluid retention (ascites), tumors in the stomach, etc. If indeed you also have difficulty defecating, then maybe your stomach is bloating due to constipation. You should try to overcome your constipation first and try to re-evaluate whether your symptoms are still permanent or improving. Here are some things you can do:
Expand to eat vegetables and fruit Increase your physical activity Increase consumption of fluids (drink at least 2-3 liters a day) In addition, try to reduce alcohol and caffeine consumption, reduce consumption of fatty foods, and try to eat slower and chew finer foods.
If indeed the condition does not improve, consult your doctor directly so that further evaluation can be done.
So much information from me, hopefully enough answer
