Updated on July 20, 2014

Why You Get Gas Pain?

Gas pain is a terrible discomfort that can come unannounced. If you are lactose or gluten intolerant, you might be at greater risk of gas, and also when you eat a diet of legumes, whole grains, fruits, and vegetables. Some chronic intestinal ailments, like diverticulitis, inflammatory bowel disease, or irritable bowel syndrome can place you at greater threat.

Sometimes, gas pain is usually mistaken for another ailment, such as appendicitis, gall stones, and even heart attack. To make a diagnosis, doctors normally take a medical record, such as a food record (list of all foods and beverages taken) as well as a history of symptoms. If a particular food such as milk is regarded as the reason for GI gas symptoms, the affected person can be advised to avoid that food for some time to find out if symptoms improve.

Gas pain usually strikes at the most undesirable time, and that's why simple remedies need to be available for sudden complaints such as gas and bloating. Before helpful treatment for gas pain can be undertaken however, it should first be assessed first which factors have perpetrated the problem.
