Hi Tee,Have you tried taking any OTC meds to help beat the bloat? Gas-X? I usually do a combination of tea and Gas-X. I make tea out of fresh mint or I just buy peppermint tea. Either way any "mint" tea should help cut the gas. I also try to do some walking to get the gases moving.I have never heard of water, baking soda and lemon. Did it work??? I can't imagine the concoction tasted too good.
Hope you're feeling better!
Bloating is so uncomfortable. I have had bouts where every bite I put into my mouth caused bloating and gas. The trapped gas is so painful. If you are having trapped gas, there are several things you can do.....lay on your bed and roll back and forth, over and over, then back and forth again. I know for a fact that this can work. When you are so miserable, you will try anything...sometimes this works.
Hmm, Dulcolax and hot tea....I am going to try that one. Imodium and an anti-spasmodic helped me this week. I was in such misery! But, am feeling better now. The heating pad was making the pain worse.
One new thing I have tried is Fennel Capsules, at the Health Food Store, I take them (2) before I eat, during, or after, whichever works best for me. They seem to be doing a great job!! The bloating is not as bad as it was.
I definitely will not eat anything fried, If I do...my gut feels like someone has a pump on it and the intestines are filling up with air to capacity. This is very very uncomfortable. And, can turn out to be quite embarassing. I don't worry about the gas expulsion thing anymore, because I am so glad to get that gas out of my body. it seems like it is time for a celebration! My family knows how I suffer, and if I have gas, they know it is a good thing. And I am going to be feeling better!
Try the fennel, I swear by it!! OH, and the peppermint tea too, it is great!!!
