Did you know we take requests and questions?
This question is from a lady who has been exercising a lot recently and looks simply magnificent now. She asked me this recently because her trainer wants her to breathe properly during her weights and cardio.
Gas in the stomach - why?
It is hard to know exactly why some people can get gas in the stomach and if it is painful or troublesome, you really should consult your medical practitioner.
However in Louise's case, I figured she might be drinking a lot of fluid because she is working hard. Lots of water or saliva in the mouth will make you swallow because you don't want to look like a dribbling idiot 🙂
I put it to Louise that perhaps her mouth is excessively moist and causing her to swallow a lot - since she is huffing and puffing, she is likely to be swallowing air as well - hence her tummy full of air.
Not a real physiotherapy problem...but it is a good thing we can think laterally!
