Hi..

As per your complain it seems that you are suffering from excess intestinal gas formation that is leading to excess flatulence.

It can occur due to number of causes like:
-Intake of certain foods..
-Change in diet suddenly.
-Eating too fast that can entrap excess of air.
-Lactose intolerance, excess intake of dairy.
-Constipation..
-Frequent chewing of chewing gums and sucking candies..
-Excess intake of dairy etc..

-As you are doing regular workouts it is a good practice..
-You should also take walk after meals..
-You should take small portions of food every 2 hours.
-Avoid heavy and large fatty meals..
-You should also limit intake of frizzy drinks, smoking and excess chewing gums..
-You can take Simethicone as it help in reducing intestinal gas..
-Activated charcoal pills can be helpful..
-Drink sufficient water..
-chew your food slowly and properly..

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Regards,
Dr. Honey Arora, Dentist

I have been having increased passing gas for about 1 month now, it does not matter what I eat, but I start passing gas within 1 hour of food consumption and it does not matter if I have ate high or low fiber foods. This is getting embarrassing and I m not sure what I should do.

Good evening, I had a recent bout of what my GP described as gastro virus. Symptoms were bloating , severe cramping with constant burping and flatulence . No vomiting or diarrhoea. I had feverish feelings but no high temp. This lasted for 4 days and is thankfully almost gone. The day I went to my GP (4th day) I was developing a rash on my face and forehead . I thought it might be the stress of the previous days and nights. My GP didnt have an opinion. This has gotten somewhat worse. It is not itchy but has a burning sensation and very noticeboard. I was wondering if this might be an after effect of my stomach ailment or something else. I have been applying a mild moisturiser with no effect as yet. Thank you for any advice.

Hi doctor, I am 28year male and is suffering from frequent and excessive flatulence . My bowel movements are fine but the stool is smelly and loose (like a thick paste) in nature. Colonoscopy , endoscopy and ultrasound turned out to be fine. I daily go to the toilet two times in the morning but whatever the case, the flatulence starts by late afternoon. I have changed my diet quite a lot of times but have not found any improvement. I had taken Rifagut for quite some time and it is effective as long as the medicine is taken. As soon as the medication is stopped, the symptoms are back again. What could be the reason for the loose stools and for the flatulence?

Hi Doctor...you've been very helpful in the past. I have moved from Parnate to Marplan (isocarboxazid) and my current doctor knows nothing about MAOIs. Essentially it's very close to Phenelzine but without the effects on Gaba transaminase. Side...
