Bad bloat last night but it didn't hurt bad. My stool was very gassy. Not bloody, should I go to GI doc or what?

In brief: No
It would be very expensive (for society and you) to go to a specialist physician for one evening's discomfort.
If this persists, see a primary care doc first. If you go to a guy with a hammer, everything looks like a nail. I'm a GI doc and i don't want to see every tom, dick and harry with one night's discomfort. You risk getting unecessary procedures.
