Intestinal Gas (Belching, Bloating, Flatulence) Index

Featured: Intestinal Gas (Belching, Bloating, Flatulence) Main Article

Gas or "intestinal gas" means different things to different people. Everyone has gas and eliminates it by belching or farting (flatulence). Bloating is a subjective feeling that the stomach is larger or fuller than normal. While swallowed air often causes belching, foods and certain medications may also cause belching, farting, and bloating. Treatment for exessive intestinal gas depends on the cause.
