Farts

Hello doctor,
first sorry for my bad english.
im 16 years old male.
At the start of the last year i have been facing a problem. i had(and have) a lot of farts.
it wasnt like my reguler farts, it was without a smell usually, and i felt always like i have a fart. you can understand what inconvenience i felt all the year. i have been to a doctor few times, she recommended me to take probiotics and it didnt really help.and than she refenced me to an Helicobacter pylori and the result was negative.
althogh it's sound weird, this problem happens usually at school only.i dont know why, maybe the hours, the sit, i dont know.
i felt very frustrated all the year.
My School is starting in a few days and i dont want to have this nightmare again.
Thank you very much

Hi there!

Well, flatulence could occur due to stress, aerophagia, gastroesophageal reflux, malabsorption syndromes,  lactose intolerance, GI infections/ parasitic infestations, increased dietary intake of oligosaccharides, dairy products beans, lentils, onions, garlic, scallions, leeks, turnips, rutabagas, radishes, sweet potatoes, potatoes, cashews, oats, wheat, cauliflower, broccoli, cabbage etc. You could start by making changes in your diet. If this does not seem to help, I would suggest consulting a gastroenterologist for an accurate diagnosis and appropriate management.
Hope this helps.

Take care!
