    I have a similar problem. I find taking digestive enzymes helps somewhat. However, no doctors have been able to give me any answers as to why this happens.

    Try taking probiotics and digestive enzymes.
    I had the same problem and I had several tests done.
    I figured it out myself:
    I checked out the supplements I take and stopped any where there was a side effect of gas, belching, nausea and lack of appetite.
    One brand of calcium was a culprit. Also check the side effects of any medication you take. I stopped taking Effexor and changed to another drug.
    Check out supplements/meds at; it's user friendly. Good luck.

    I have had severe stomach issues for almost 20 years now and gas and distention are the worst culprits! After a plethora of tests & doctors & getting my gallbladder removed, the main issues I have with gas are mainly dairy products. The best thing to do is an elemination diet. It takes time, actually helps save money on groceries & helps get to the issue. Cut out all foods except for the basics - fruits, veggies and whole wheat breads only. Then after a week slowly incorporate foods, you'll find out real fast which ones are giving you the issues. Good luck!!

    You need to try eating greek yogurt. It helps with digestion and its pretty tasty when you get the ones that have fruit with them.
