Lately Ive been getting really bad problems with trapped wind, the last time I had it, it lasted for 3 days.
It seems like no matter what I take or do, it doesn't shift.

I woke up with trapped gas in the morning, it's now the evening and still hasn't gone anywhere. I have taken 2 gaviscons and 2 zantac's.

I really want to shift my wind, Ive read about different positions to make you fart, but I'm not the kind of person that farts in front of my hubby blush

Anybody have any advice for me? And could all this wind be linked to something?
It can't be what I ate because I woke up with the wind cry

I'm so bloated, I look 7 months pregnant, and I'm in so much pain from it.

What is your diet like? Maybe try keeping a food journal for a week or so. Certain foods such as broccoli, cabbage and other cruciferous veggies are notorius for causing gas pains. Also some fiber supplements such as Metamucil can cause gas and while fiber is good, it has to be worked into the diet slowly. Are you taking any meds that could be causing the problem?

There is a position in yoga called child's pose that is said to help with gas. Actually a lot of yoga positions and breathing may be helpful. Also, walking 30 minutes a day, making sure you have plenty of water, 64 ounces. That's all I can think of right now, hope you get some answers and more suggestions from others and feel better soon.

I find that peppermint tea helps with trapped wind and also abdominal massage. Use the palm of your hand and follow the large colon around the abdomen. Keep repeating this and sometimes it helps to relieve trapped wind.

I know the feeling it's very uncomfortable.  I have it all the time.  It's like you want to put aneedle in your stomach and burst it like a balloon!  I try some positions in bed, bending, putting my bottom higher than the rest of my body, walking.  Some times it helps, sometimes it doesn't.  But when you feel the gas is coming out don't hold it!  I wouldn't care less if my hubby was in front of me, my main target is always to get rid of the gas no matter what!!!

honey, don't worry about your hubby.  You get that gas out of you or you will feel so awfull.  I remember when my day was alive i would go into my mom bed room and i didn't know who had the worst gas,  my mom, dad, or the dog.  So just let it out.  I bet your hubby wouldn't have any problem letting his out.
