Hi, Air swallowing is the major source of stomach gas, which can be seen in some individuals. The most common symptoms are belching (56 percent), bloating (27 percent) abdominal pain (19 percent), and abdominal distension (swelling). You need to discontinue the habits such as gum chewing, smoking if present, drinking carbonated beverages, and gulping food and liquids at a time is needed. Particular food which you are intolerant to should be identified such as specific wheat flour, lactose, fructose containing food, spicy food etc. and should be avoided. Also you need radio inimaging to rule out the exact cause as there are many organs in abdominal cavity and abnormality in any one cause infection.I suggest you to consult physician. Take care and regards.
