Hello and welcome to Healthcare Magic. Thanks for your query.

Gas problems arise due to acidity and ulcers in the stomach, and this often presents with symptoms such as pain and discomfort in the chest area. Since your ECG is normal, you don't have to worry that your symptoms could be due to a heart problem.

Now, gas problem is often due to irregular and unhealthy dietary habits. So, while medication can provide you relief on a temporary basis, in order to have a long-term relief, you have to follow dietary and lifestyle modifications. I would suggest the following:

1) Avoid foods that cause gastric irritation like spicy foods, coffee, tea, carbonated drinks, etc.
2) Increase the fibre content in your diet - take more of vegetables and fruits.
3) Avoid eating outside, especially avoid all kinds of junk food and fast foods.
4) Try to have a healthy lifestyle with regular exercise and proper sleep habits.
5) Try to avoid stress and try relaxation methods like deep breathing, meditation, etc.

Best wishes,
Dr. Sheeba Stephen

hi there, gas is usually caused when there is some derangement in our food habit or sedentry life style. You could make minor changes in your food habits like take small meals at frequent intervals, avoid high protein diets and have a balanced meal containing a balanced amount of carbohydrates, fat and proteins. Do take some form of exercise and avoid food like eggs, pulses and cheeze or dairy products in the evening time. Usually swimming is a very good form of exercise and also helps in releiving gas. Last but not the least move your bowels regularly and drink plenty of water. Hope these simple measures help. Take care.
