What To Do If You Have Gas In Your Stomach
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.

Not usually: Occasionally food and stomach juice may back wash into the esophagus, but when there is increase in frequency & severity of these episodes damage to the lining of the esophagus occurs. A barrier exists that prevents this from occurring frequently at the junction of the esophagus and stomach; GE sphincter. A lot of problem with reflux is underestimated.

Get it evaluated: Discomfort is the same thing as pain. Have a doctor evaluate the issue.
Fermentation: Gas in the abdomen can come from fermentation in the colon or in the stomach. If there is belching the gas is in the stomach.

Gas: Also look into an "elimination diet". Trying taking out one thing at a time for 5days and see if it helps. Start with things like dairy, artificial sweeteners, wheat, carbonation, caffeine. After taking them out, reintroduce them to see if the symptoms return. Take your time eating. Swallowing air is a big cause of gas. Keep a diary of how each change affects you.See 1 more doctor answer
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.
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.
