Abdominal bloating is a condition in which the abdomen feels uncomfortably full and tight and may be visibly swollen (distended)

swallowing air--constipation--heartburn--eating too fast---weight gain--menstruation --some medications--sugar substitutes (fructose and sorbitol)----irritable bowel syndrome---intolerance to dairy products----overgrowth of bacteria in the small bowel----giardiasis (intestinal parasites)
serious causes include :
>fluid in the abdominal cavity (ascites) as a result of cancer, liver disease, kidney failure, congestive heart failure, and other disorders
>celiac disease (wheat gluten intolerance)
>ovarian cancer
>pancreatic insufficiency (impaired digestion because the pancreas cannot produce enough digestive enzymes)
