Bloat or wind

Definition

Bloating is any abnormal general swelling, or increase in diameter of the abdominal area.

The most common symptoms associated with bloating include pain in the abdominal cavity, chest pain, vomiting, diarrhoea, constipation, and bloody or darkened stools. Others include difficulty swallowing, abdominal fullness, and excessive gas after drinking. Unexplained weight loss can also be experienced as the amount of food ingested decreases due to a poor appetite and stomach discomfort.

Stomach bloating also causes the body to feel fatigue, breathing problems, and pain. Bloating may have several causes, a common one being food allergy.
