abdominal distension can be caused by:
Gas or feces , or fluid accumulation
with bloating it's maybe du to:
1- increased air swallowing
2-increased gas production in the abdomen (by bacteria)
increased air swallowing , du to chewing a gum , eating , smoking ...
increased gas production is du to overgrowth of the bacteria in the abdomen which in turn produce more gas.
obstruction , it's unlikely to have obstruction with out pain and it come with decreased amount of farting and stool excretion.
als it could be fluid accumulation , but it's unlikely if the patient does not has a heard , lung and kidney problems.
don't forget it maybe psychological ,
hope it's helpful !
