Excess gases that accumulate in the intestines cause abdominal distention (swelling of the abdomen) and cause intestinal spasms.
The accumulated gas in the gut comes from two different routes, in part, of air that is ingested by swallowing food, but this gas may also be the product of fermentation carried out by bacteria in the intestinal flora. If these gases are produced in excessive or retained can cause abdominal pain, sometimes intense, usually acute (cramps) but on other occasions and mild persistent (heavy stomach).
