Patient's Query

Hi doctor,

My father is suffering from gas issue from the last 7 to 8 days. He does not feel like eating from 2 to 3 days. Have checked with local doctors, after a few tests they found nothing but his bloating has not gone down. He also feels pain in stomach. Please suggest.


Welcome to iclinq.com.

There are different conditions that can cause abdominal bloating that goes from non-urgent to serious conditions. If he is not passing bowel movements or gas and has remarkable abdominal pain, it can be a serious condition like bowel obstruction and needs to be taken to hospital emergency department.

On the other hand, if he is passing gas and bowel movements, he needs to be checked for H. Pylori which is a stomach bacteria and has a specific treatment. If H.Pylori is negative then next step is to see a gastroenterologist for potential gastrointestinal endoscopy.

Same symptoms don't mean you have the same problem. Consult a doctor now!
