Hi Rashad,

Though gas and bloating can be painful, they are normal conditions that often occur during digestion.

Certain foods and beverages may cause you to experience these more than others. Medical conditions such as lactose intolerance and medications may also cause gas and bloating. Besides adjusting your diet, some medications may also help treat gas and bloating.

Check out these resources on Sensitive Stomachs: Gas Control , The Digestive System & Gas , or Gas, Bloating & Burping Home Treatment .

I hope that helps. Please let us know how you're doing and if you have more questions.
