Stomach bloating is a common occurrence which takes place after a rather indulgent meal, too much to drink or a food type which does not agree with you. Often the symptom of bloating will subside in its own time and is not a cause for concern. However, if your bloating precedes weight loss and stomach pain, you should carefully monitor these signs as they could indicate something is far more serious.

Stomach pain
Stomach pain is a term used to refer to cramps or a dull ache in the tummy.

But this is usually short-lived and is often not serious.

But the NHS warns: “Severe abdominal pain is a greater concern.

“If it starts suddenly and unexpectedly, it should be regarded as a medical emergency, especially if the pain is concentrated in a particular area.”

There are many possible causes of abdominal bloating, including fluid retention, irritable bowel syndrome, and infection. However, for most people, the cause of bloating will be fairly harmless, and it can be treated at home.

Abdominal bloating can be alarming, particularly when it is very painful.

In many cases, the cause may be something as simple as indigestion or too much gas building up in the stomach and bowels.

If your bloating is accompanied with either weight loss or stomach pain however, it’s important to discuss this matter with your GP.
