Consult with a doctor for control. Take care

What causes too much gas in the stomach?

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. Blocking stomach acid can led to overgrowth of bacteria in the stomach. Eating small amounts of healthy unprocessed foods with some of the herbs that are helpful for gas like ginger, fennel, or peppermint can be helpful.

Stomach gas every day why?

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.

How to relieve stomach gas?

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.
