Thanks for posting your query.
As I believe that a detailed history is an integral part of an accurate diagnosis, I would like to have a few more details before giving you my expert opinion regarding the farting you are having. It most commonly happens due to excessive gas formation and indigestion.
1) Do you have these episodes frequently?
2) Since how long is the problem
3) Do you remember eating stale or rotten food?
4) Is it associated with any pain in the abdomen?
5) Any relation to food intake?
6)Is there any history of diarrhea or constipation?
Awaiting your reply.
Wishing you good health.
Dr. Rakhi Tayal.
