Thyroid or not: It is more common for people to have abdominal pain associated with hyperparathyroidism rather than hyperthyroidism (due to increase risk of ulcer disease and kidney stones), but hyperthyroidism can cause this as well. Hyperthyroidism can cause your gut to have increased mobility. This usually causes diarrhea, but cramping can happen as well. Good luck. ...Read more
Possible, but unlike: Overactive thyroid can cause many, many different symptoms. It can increase your intestinal transit time leading to diarrhea, but continuous cramps is unlikely. Get your thyroid level normalized and you'll know if the thyroid was responsible. Meanwhile, keep looking for other possible causes. ...Read more

A few methods:
There is no easy answer here but a few suggestions:
1. Swallow less air. This is best achieved by eating slower, not talking when eating, and eating less temperature hot foods (when food is hot we inhale a lot of air to cool it down)
2. If this doesn't help, simethicone (gas-x) can help dissolve gas particles and make gas easier to pass
3. If still a problem see a GI doctor or pcp. ...Read more
Belch: The best way to release gas from your stomach is to belch. It is also important to try not to swallow air. You shouldn't drink with straws, out of bottles, avoid sodas, avoid eating too fast and washing food down with liquid. If you are speaking about intestinal gas you should avoid gas forming foods such as broccoli, beans, fiber, dried fruits, salads, etc. ...Read more
None: No foods absorb stomach gas, it might be a problem of swallowed air when eating. We all swallow air when we eat. Intestinal gas is a different story, sometimes, excess sugars in our diet and undigested foods go to the bacteria in the colon where gas is produced. Paying attention to diet cauliflower, broccoli and brussel sprouts can produce gas. ...Read more
Find the cause: Many different things can cause stomach bloating. True bloating due to a large amount of gas can best be avoided by avoiding the foods, activities that cause the gas accumulation. Many other things feel like bloating but may be due to inflammation or adhesions or gallstone problems etc. See your primary to figure out the cause of your symptoms. ...Read more
Gas: For gas entrapment, drinking hot(not too hot) water or applying heat to the abdomen helps break down the gas bubbles and allows them to be passed down the intestinal tract for expulsion rectally as nature intends. Don't force yourself to burp as this only causes you to swallow more air. Taking simethicone after meals helps prevent gas buildup. ...Read more
Gas: Gas is usually caused by air swallowing. ...Read more
All of them.: Gas in your intestines is due to air swallowing, fermentation by gut bacteria and by chemical reactions. Any and all of them have been shown to cause discomfort in some people. Certain foods (beans, brussels sprouts, onions, celery, carrots, raisins, bananas, wheat germ, and fermentable fiber) can increase gas production and knots. ...Read more
Feeling gassy...: 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

Gas: Gas after a meal may be dependent on what you're eating. Also carbonated beverages can contribute to gas and belching. Aerophagia, or swallowing air ( this happens with chewing gum) can also produce stomach gas. I would monitor your intake and try an OTC gas medication such as Simethicone. Best of health to you! ...Read more
Simethicone: Simethicone is available over-the-counter w/o prescription in the states to help deal w/excessive gas. Sudden increase in fiber can do this as well as consumption of certain foods: beans are famous for inducing flatulence. Figure out what your triggers are and try to avoid them. Or talk to your doc about simethicone. ...Read more
