Transient Bloating of the Abdomen
Abdominal bloating is one of the common symptoms that a person experiences, either with disease or even in the absence of disease, yet it is not always easily explained. In most instances it is fluctuating and therefore referred to as transient bloating. However, sometimes abdominal bloating is persistent, either staying constant, increasing or decreasing distension. The two most commonly thought of causes for transient bloating is gas or fluid accumulation. However, gas in the gut is rarely able to distend the abdomen to a degree that causes noticeable bloating without the gas first being evacuated through either end of the gut.
