What could cause gas pain in the lower abdomen?

I have gas pain in my lower abdomen.


Answer by  Vil (117)

There are generally two causes for gas in the digestive tract: swallowed air, and the breakdown of undigested food. There are other medical conditions that can mimic gas pain, and a medical examination may be prudent.

Consider if you have had a recent change in your eating habits, including an increase in fiber, cruciferous vegetables (broccoli, cauliflower, cabbage) or artificially sweetened foods. Also, you may have more gas if you have significantly decreased your exercise time.

The determining factors probably are how much gas the body produces, how many fatty acids the body absorbs, and a person's sensitivity to gas in the large intestine. Chronic symptoms caused by too much gas or by a serious disease are rare.

Could be something you are eating. Many foods can cause gas pain. You should consult your Doctor if it is troublesome.
