Description

Increased flatulence describes the more frequent passing of gas. Otherwise known as farting.

When to See a Doctor

Seek professional care if you experience any of the following symptoms

Possible Causes

  • Aerophagia

    Excessive and repetitive swallowing of air, resulting in symptoms of burping and flatulence. It can be caused by psychological reasons or habits, or use of machines that assist in breathing (CPAP machines).

  • Gastro Esophageal Reflux Disease (GERD)

    A condition where gastric acid reverses back up the esophagus (food pipe). It can be caused or worsened by obesity, alcohol and caffeine. Meal habits also play a role - eating large meals quickly or lying down after meals are known triggers.
