Welcome to Healthcare Magic
Good day
Intestinal distention because of gas is known to be associated with headaches. This is commonly seen in Acid peptic disease. You won't have stroke just because of the gas buildup, don't worry. If this is a recent issue it would be wise to go in for a Gastroscopy to rule out any Gastritis or Peptic ulcers. As of now, you may take Cap.Omez 20mg once in the morning half an hour before meals. Avoid smoking, coffee, spicy food. Eat well washed fresh fruits and vegetables. Exercise for 40 minutes everyday by brisk walking.

Hi Carlos,
Welcome to HCM.
Gas cannot cut off circulation. More over gas in the stomach cannot cause pulsating headache. May be you had a little bit too much last night. Try visiting the toilet and if that does not relieve your symptoms, in the morning pay a visit to your family doctor for assessment of your condition.
