I seem to get stomach gas very fast after eating oatmeal. Why does oatmeal cause gas, and why so fast after eating it??
Fiber : Oatmeal contains plenty of soluble fiber which causes gas, and can rather quickly.

Gas: We all produce intestinal gas. It's a natural byproduct of digestion. So we can be and are fine despite gas. However, when it becomes uncomfortable (don't worry about social mores), we need avoid those foods that aggravate gas production. Beans are a prime example. Luckily, some respond well to a product to help w/digestion eg beano. See if dairy products make things worse. If so, consider lactaid. ...Read more
Many things: Geetha, if you are not dieting and have lost much weight in a short while you should see a physician or clinic. You can take antacids or over the counter acid blockers as a trial, avoid alcohol and very acidic or greasy foods and don't lie flat (use pillows) to keep acid in your stomach. But bottom line is that very fast weight loss can be dangerous and you need to know why this is happening. ...Read more

I have a growth on my testes and it is very painful and causing me to breath fast and a upset stomach could this be cancer ? It feels like death help
You are worried.: You are right that a growth on the testicle needs to be evaluated. Testicular lumps sometimes are cancerous, and an ultrasound (soundwave) test will likely be ordered by your doctor to sort it out. The fact that it's painful makes me wonder if it is an infection/inflammation. I think you may be suffering some anxiety symptoms as your mind pictures a frightening scenario. Get checked. Good luck. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
