Tummy trouble

My son is five years old, and recently we realized he doesn't expell gas on his own. We went to the dr for side pain and he said his whole stomach was full of gas. Is this normal or is there something I can do to help him ?

I would say try Gas x disolvable strips and see if that helps.  But im almost 100% sure he will be lactoxe intolerant. 70% of the population is, we are the only animal that consumes milk after we are weined.  I went through this with my daughter for about 2 years before i figured it out. I bought lactose pills that you take once a day and still eat milk and all probs went away.  As a nurse i have diagnosed many with this problem.Tummy massage also helps
