Today and yesterday I have had a nagging feeling of discomfort in my left side just inside the groin and almost over the pubic hair. It feels sort of sore but I think it is a windy problem but it won't shift.
I went out for a meal (how adventurous!) on Valentine's Day and think I may be paying the price although I was extremely cautious about what I ate and how much.
Is it the experience of others that once wind gets in a certain place it sort of grumbles away neither getting worse nor moving on?
The Colpermin seems to have failed me here.
Trapped gas is one of my biggest problems. It is sometimes "stuck" due to stool that needs to pass and sometimes it actually blocks the bm by accumulating in one spot (often in the bends of the intestine) and refusing to budge.
As you know, I am a big fan and proponent of belly massage. If you can "knead" the spot where the gas is stuck, working your fingers deeply into the gut, you can often dislodge the gas and whatever foul matter is trapped behind it. I have also found lying on your left side will work wonders as well.
When all else fails, I will drink Mylanta. It takes 4 tablespoons to really do the trick but it will get things moving for you.
