Does gas cause upset stomach?

Posted , 6 users are following.

I was wondering if too much gas in the stomach can make you feel nauseous. I had a chicken sandwich at lunch and didn't eat much for the rest of the day. I think my stomach filled up with gas and now I feel very nauseous. It's either gas or acid making me feel like this. I also have a dull ache in my stomach and feel like I want to go to the toilet again (I went not so long ago). Is it possible I have gastritis? Should I be on PPIs? I just drank some antacid and hoping it works. I'm also burping a lot. This has been happening on and off since August last year. I would be ok for a few weeks and then have a flare up. Every time I think I'm getting better, I end up getting sick again. I think it has something to do with my eating habits. I have started to eat smaller meals more frequently throughout the day and still having flare ups. What should I do??? I also have health anxiety and this has caused me a lot of worry and stress.
