Intestinal gaseousness caused by failure of the intestines to completely process some complex carbohydrates, such as those found in beans, onions and bran. Exercise may increase flatulence because it hastens the passage of food through the intestinal tract, sometimes not allowing enough time for complete digestion.
Presence of excessive air or gas within the intestinal tract.
Gas in the stomach or bowels
Excessive production of gas in the intestines or stomach.
a state of excessive gas in the alimentary canal
Excessive amounts of gas in the stomach or other parts of the digestive tract.
The passage of gas through the rectum, a normal occurrence; but troublesome if the frequency or volume is excessive or if the sound or odor is offensive.
Producing too much gas in the digestive process; gas (methane and carbon dioxide) are by-products of the body's natural digestive process
This is the passing of excess gas from the intestinal tract. A common symptom of lactose intolerence.
The release of gas through the anus.
excess amounts of air or gases in the stomach or intestines, leading to distention (expansion) of the organs in the gastrointestinal tract.
Excessive gas which is expelled from the anus.
Excessive gas in the stomach or intestine.
Swallowed air trapped in the alimentary canal.
Excess wind in the stomach and intestines.
Excess gas in the intestinal tract. But excess flatulence is difficult to define without a yardstick to measure the "normal" frequency of gas passages. Symptom-free individuals have recorded approximately 14 passages of gas per 24 hours. From the Latin flastus, meaning blowing, as a breeze or snort.

Sense of fullness in the upper abdomen associated with a desire to belch. Sometimes this term is confused with the term flatus which, means gases in the intestine associated with distension and the removal of gas by way of the anus.
excessive gas in stomach and/or intestines
excessive gas or wind in the digestive tract
Abnormal amount of gas in the stomach and intestines.
Flatulence is the presence of a mixture of gases known as flatus in the digestive tract of mammals. Flatus is expelled under pressure through the anus, usually accompanied by a distinct odor and sound, a process known informally as farting, or as passing gas. The non-odorous gases are mainly nitrogen (ingested), carbon dioxide (produced by aerobic microbes or ingested), and hydrogen (produced by some microbes and consumed by others), as well as lesser amounts of oxygen (ingested) and methane (produced by anaerobic microbes).
