Bloating is usually not a serious condition. However, you should talk to your doctor if you make the recommended changes to your diet and your bloating doesn't go away. You should also talk to your doctor if you have any other digestive system complications. These can include pain in your abdomen or rectum, vomiting, constipation, diarrhea, bloody stool, fever, heartburn, or unexplained weight loss. Any of these symptoms along with bloating may be an indication of a more serious underlying condition.
