My husband has a cpap machine. He has a problem where he has bad gas and belching all day after useing the machine. What can he do about it?

CPAP: Discuss this with his doctor. The pressure may be too high for him, forcing some air into his stomach. He might need another CPAP titration. I doubt that this would cause problems all day, though. ...Read more

I'm having trapped gas pain on my right side. I have been passing gas & belching. I just had a laparascopic appendectomy 19 days ago. Is this normal?

I'm having trapped gas pain on my right side. I have been passing gas & belching. I just had a laparascopic appendectomy 19 days ago. Is this normal?

Yes: With laparoscopic appendectomy there is alway a certain amount of inflammation in the region of the cecum and adjacent rt. colon. There can also be a minimal degree of ileus or lack of peristalsis in the bowel causing gas accumulation and retrograde motion of gas or belching. One should wait several wks for resolution. ...Read more

Is it possible to have pains on the lower right side of my back due to gas? I feel slightly relieved if I burp or pass gas. It's been a few days now?

Is it possible to have pains on the lower right side of my back due to gas? I feel slightly relieved if I burp or pass gas. It's been a few days now?

But what's cause?: 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). Sometimes its more complicated--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. ...Read more

Why do I keep having right side pains in my stomache, with severe gas piains and I feel bloated all the time and I feel the urge to wanna burp.

GB disease?: Very simply, you're complaining of right sided abd pain, bloating and increasing belching. This complex could be signs of gallbladder disease. Usually this would be worse after fatty foods, and nausea/vomiting could also be associated. I suggest you try a low fat diet, good hydration, and seek a medical opinion. Good luck. ...Read more

Ihave random digestive noises, off bowels&random shooting pains on my left side and under my left rib. No reflux or burping but gas.vagas nerve related?

See your doc: Bowel problems range from bad food, to lactose intolerance. You can try eliminating gassy foods such as milk, cabbage family, beans, etc or try adding digestive aids, but a colonoscopy would tell if the tissues are healthy or not.
Bowel habits, frequency of BMs, and diet are very important for a healthy digestion. GI docs, or your FP can answer your questions ...Read more

Can excessive gas cause rib and back pain? Sharp pains under left rib, down left side and mid to upper back. Some burping and flatuence

Yes it can: Excessive gas in the bowels can cause pressure upwards and backwards. Pressure upwards effects the diaphragm which attaches to the ribs. Pressure backwards can impact the back. Drinking warm tea and gently massaging the belly may help move the gas along. ...Read more

Stabby pains on left side of stomach, poopin mucous, gas, burping, bloated, allergy test says I'm an allergic to gluten, not tested for celiac yet.

Gluten: Gluten intolerance or sensitivity, lactose intolerance and irritable bowel syndrome can cause these symptoms. Try avoiding gluten to see if symptoms improve. Bear in mind that if you're going to be tested for celiac disease you should continue to eat wheat and gluten products or else your test may be falsely negative. ...Read more

I have tons of gas-burping mostly. But no heartburn, just pain on my left side for three days. Help?

Gassy burping : Most gas-burping are benign and self-limiting, rarely requiring medical attention. However, various organic and psychogenic causes can lead to persistent, intractable burping that can last for years. We have posted treatments for gassy stomachs before here. Eat slowly, chew food. Avoid soda and gas producing foods (dairies, vetetables, fatty food or anything with fiber). ...Read more

Could be heart: It could be acid reflux or other GI related pain. However, because you are having trouble breathing and left sided chest pain, I'd see your doctor to get a more thorough evaluation.

I have a constant pain in my left side. It hurts deep through my back. Its worse if i burp or breath in I thought maybe it was gas or a bowl mivement but it's been in the same area for 3 days. It does feel a little better if I don't move around or walk to m

Pain : Pain in this area is very tricky since there are many organ systems involving the left abdomen/side.
— stomach — problems such as gastroesophageal reflux, gastritis, and stomach ulcers can cause pain in these areas — usually worse with eating and worse while laying down — pancreas — pancreatitis, pancreatic stones/blockages can cause epigastric pain, sometimes radiating to the back — intestinal — duodenal ulcers, infections and constipation can cause pain there because the colon loops up into that area — kidney — kidney stones or infections can cause pain in the left upper quadrant, though many people feel it in their backs.
— gyne — ovarian pain from a cyst or even an infection from a sexually transmitted disease can cause pain in the left upper quadrant.

And all those are just a few of the things that could be going on. So, your best option is to be seen by a doctor and examined to determine the cause of your pain.

Reasons to go to the er are: — high fever — bloody stool — bright green or bloody vomit — severe or worsening pain — difficulty breathing. ...Read more

Pain down left side, ribs and back. Burping a lot. Some burning feeling in middle of chest. Tiny black specks in stools is it excessive gas?

Pain down left side, ribs and back. Burping a lot.  Some burning feeling in middle of chest.  Tiny black specks in stools is it excessive gas?

Melenic specks?: Dark-colored stools may result from iron supplements, foods you eat (like a lot of spinach), substances (like peptobismol), but most significantly suggests bleeding. When blood is denatured by acid in your stomach, as from ulcers, stools will turn tarry ("melena"). Blood may also be ingested from nose bleeds, bleeding gums. Persistent melena with your dyspeptic symptoms however warrants md visit. ...Read more

Passing gas,burping at times,having bowel movements, dull pain upper right side of back. Started Prilosec OTC 14 day three days ago, no insurance help?

It is likely that: you have some gallbladder or liver issues that would require help from a healthcare provider. There are OTC meds such as Mylanta or Maalox that you can get for gas and indigestion, which could relieve some of our symptoms. However if you continue to have these problems despite temporary relief from the OTC meds above, you will need an ultrasound and some blood tests to rule out more serious Dx. ...Read more

Side effect: I would say your symptoms are a side effect of amoxicillin rather than pregnancy. If I understand your symptoms as related to intercourse and medication start chronologically, then amoxicillin is the likely culprit here. ...Read more

Constant ache in right-hand side abdomen half-way up ribs, combined with throat spasm, and burping. Made worse by lying or leaning.  Passing gas also!

Exam needed: These symptoms and their location suggest liver or gall bladder origin. Appendicitis symptoms are usually in the right lower abdomen. I recommend that you be examined by your physician and appropriate testing will be done. Referral may be made to an abdominal surgeon or gastroenterologist depending upon the findings. ...Read more

Gas and acid reflux: These symptoms seem related to stomach and intestinal gas with acid reflux. You may also be relatively constipated. I recommend adding much more fiber to your diet, like high fiber cereal, oatmeal, apple, pear, celery and avoiding banana and greasy meat and pasta and sauce. Eat smaller amounts. Drink 2-3 liters of fluid per day in small sips. Do not gulp. Take simethicone. ...Read more

Having upper abdominal pains all day long did not take my aciphex (rabeprazole) today been belching passing gas a bowl movements acid reflux or gallbladder wch one?

Could be either/both: This could certainly be your reflux, but could also be a gallbladder attack. The symptoms are usually right upper quadrant pain, nausea, sometimes vomiting, often diarrhea, and these symptoms are usually worse after eating — esp after a fatty meal. Go see your doc and they will likely check some labs and get an ultrasound, and that will help decide. Be well! ...Read more
