Can intestinal gas travel to other parts of body ...

can intestinal gas travel to other parts of body causing striking pain?

About 5 months ago i started with upper gastric discomfort as if i had trapped gas in upper abdomen,accompanied with fullness noted under breast .Dr said the results showed acid reflux disease and a small hernia.

I was placed on prevacid ,however the systoms presisted .whether i had an empty stomache or a full stomache i was constantly bletching .I felt the gas pressure .I am taking overcounter meds for intestinal gas which helps and  beano.What concerns  me at present is a striking pain not too painful but  a striking pain in upper right back between shoulder blade .I do feel relief when i expell gas and or have a bowel movement .Someone told me that it could be gas .So does gas travel  from intestines to the back ,under breast bone etc? Thanks for taking my question

Absolutely. Gas can cause very sharp deep back pains. The added pressure in the colon can pressure on nerve roots signaling the pain. Sometimes the pain will linger even after you have relieved all the gas.

Yes, it can! I have the same problem and wonder what i can do to get relief. I hope that some in the medical field would answer this question with suggestion for relief.
