Having issues with gas, extremely gassy, had diarrhea, severe back pain. Cure?

I have been having issues with gas ( mostly throught the night ) for the pas 5-6 days. I feel extremely gassy and when I burp it tastes like eggs . I have had diarrhea also and in the beginning I had severe back pain , but that has diminished. At night it is the worst. Sometimes I have to sit up or get out of bed to feel a bit better, then I will start burping. The diarrhea will last most of the night.

Hello! Thanks for putting your query in HCM. I am a Gastroenterologist (DM).

Excessive gas is produced due to ingestion of some sugars which is not digested by our body and is then digested by bacteria present in gastrointestinal tract and this produce lots of gas

So see if any such sugar is taken by you especially milk if it is worsening your symptoms, then please avoid it.

Few more tips to reduce gas production
1. take tab gasex from himalaya company
2. Do regular aerobic exercise at least 30 minutes / day
3. If you are obese or overweight then you should reduce your weight again by exercise and low caloric diet
4. Wear loose clothes
5. Avoid carbonated drinks, wine or beer
6.Avoid smoking if you are taking
7. take black tea and add cardamom and ginger to it and take them with meals
8. Don't forget to close mouth while chewing food
9.Eat slowly
10. Take a proton pump inhibitor along with a prokinetic agent
11. Take Tablets that contain enzymes protease, amylase, lipase with meals
