Trapped wind occurs when bubbles of gas become trapped in the digestive tract. The gas can be trapped in the stomach, causing burping or, in the lower intestine, resulting in flatulence.
It can be caused by swallowing air, consuming carbonated beverages like fizzy pop and beer, eating too fast or gulping drinks, or even as a side effect of another medication. Food intolerances, such as lactose intolerance and coeliac disease, are common culprits of trapped wind.
