Normal, borderlineEF: The ejection fraction of the gallbladder is the percentage of bile which is excreted when the gallbladder contracts. The "normal' value should be more than 40%. But this is only a number and may vary from time to time or according to some physiologic states or medications. If all other tests used in the investigation of your symptoms are normal, it would be good to control the ef. Good luck! ...Read more

Out of nowhere today I started passing gas and burping like crazy more than normal, and my burps smell so bad. Not sure what is up with me?

Stomach/ gallbladder: Could be related to hydration status or diet. Ulcers, gastroesophogeal reflux or gallstones/gallbladder problems can all act like this. Adding probiotics to diet May be beneficial, but a physical by a Dr and obtaining history of you/family would help. If stomach or gallbladder problems run in the family, it could be that. An ultrasound of the gallbladder and checking blood/ urine would help too. ...Read more

Can gas cause chest pains? I've had them since yesterday but I've also been burping and passing gas more frequently then usual after I get the pains.

Can gas cause chest pains? I've had them since yesterday but I've also been burping and passing gas more frequently then usual after I get the pains.

Yes: There are many causes of chest pain and gas is just one of them . It's important to know what type of food you're eating, stresses in your life, other medical conditions including prescribed and non-prescribed medicines. It would be unlikely, that this is cardiac. Stop carbonated beverages and maybe this could be caused by increase in acid.(GERD). ...Read more

During and after my meals I get really gassy and I feel like I have to take a bowel i also burp a lot what can this be?

Lack of digestion: When food is not broken down and absorbed in the small intestine, it passes then to the colon where the normal bacteria in your colon then consume it and often produce methane gas as a metabolic by-product. People with lactose intolerance don't produce an enzyme to break down lactose (milk sugar) and can often get gassy for this reason. You are likely eating something you don't digest. ...Read more

I am constant burping and have gas, I had an upper endoscopy about 2 years ago my results came back fine still gassy what can I do to prevent?

Depends on problem: Why did you have an endoscopy before? It could be related to your current issue. The gas could come from certain foods you eat, swallowing air when you eat, could be a condition called non-ulcer dyspepsia or other reasons. You could eat smaller bites of food and eat more slowly, you could keep a food diary to see if certain foods make you gassy, and you can try simethicone to break up the gas. ...Read more

I have gastritis, and I can't stop having full discomfort and I am always burping and passing gas. Constant pain. Is it best to get an endoscopy done?

Sure sounds like it: Once you're sedated, a tv camera on a thin, flexible tube is inserted through your mouth, & is passed gently into your esophagus, stomach, & upper part of the small intestine. Depending on the reason for the exam, biopsies may be taken for H.pylori bacteria, celiac sprue, eosinophilic esophagitis, Barrett's esophagus, polyps can be removed, bleeding can be controlled, & other samples collected. ...Read more

We have a month old infant who is gassy. We do our best to aggresively make him burp but within an hour after feed, he gets up crying from gas pain. Are there any other remedies?

We have a month old infant who is gassy. We do our best to aggresively make him burp but within an hour after feed, he gets up crying from gas pain. Are there any other remedies?

Some possibilities: Babies swallow air- when they eat, suck or cry. During feedings, try to burp him in between every ounce, or between nursing on each side. Hold him upright (on your shoulder) for 15-20 minutes after feedings to help allow the air to rise up and escape, and not get trapped under the milk. Try a lactose free formula. Try simethicone (gas drops for infants). Check with your doctor if this continues. ...Read more

My 6 month is super gassy, always farting and burping. She wakes up crying and screaming sometimes and squirms while nursing. What could be the cause?

Change moms diet: If she is being exclusively breastfed, look at your diet. The mothers diet can cause the baby to sometimes be gassy. Avoid starches, beans and other gassy veggies. If you are supplementing with formula she may be having some intolerance to the formula. She may need to be changed to a different formula. For formula changes you should see your pediatrician or a ped GI doctor. ...Read more

My period is late and I am constantly burping and I feel gassy. Why is my period late even though I have PMS symptoms. Why am I burping constantly?

Good question but...: Feeling full of "gas" may reflect malabsorption of food (like gluten, lactose), intake of poorly digested food, or choosing foods known to promote gas (beans, fizzy drinks), a stomach emptying too slowly, bacterial overgrowth syndrome, delayed intestinal function, partial obstruction from any cause, infection, rectum problems, and pelvic pathology outside the gut--check home pregnancy test now. ...Read more

Cramping for 3 but no period feel like burping but can't and feel like am gassy but can't go to the bathroom what could it be?

Several reasons: Though cramping is often a sign of menstruation, it can also be a symptom of other occurrences within the female body. For example, one major reason for cramping but no period is pregnancy, as sudden cramping and the lack of a period are often the very first signs of conception. Ovulation pain is another common reason for cramping without getting a period, since the period usually comes about two. ...Read more
