Gas can result if you swallow air while eating, so eat slowly, chew thoroughly, avoid chewing gum, and stay calm.
Keep a food diary to see if your symptoms are caused by certain foods. Some common offenders are: Vegetables such as broccoli, brussels sprouts, cabbage, cauliflower, cucumbers, green peppers, onions, peas, beans and other legumes, fruits such as apricots, bananas, melons, peaches, pears, prunes, and raw apples, wheat and wheat bran, eggs, carbonated drinks, fruit drinks, beer, and red wine, fried and fatty foods, sugar and sugar substitutes. That list seems to include almost everything, so that's why a food diary is helpful to figure out exactly which food is causing your problem.
Overeating can also cause bloating, so eat in moderation.
If your abdominal pain is severe, if you can't touch your tummy because it is too tender, if you are vomiting or passing blood in your stool, please see your doctor.
Come see me at the clinic if you need a check up.
Love yourself, take care of your health!
