Does anyone get gas that is stuck in the digestive tract and won't pass? Do you ever feel like you there's something in your butt, like you  have to poop, but you don't and it's not constipation? I have my butthold poke out too when I have gas pressure. I guess that's it, gas pressure. Anyone experience this? If so what's your symptoms?

I used to have gas that felt trapped in my guts, and I too have felt like I needed to poot, but the gas doesn't want to come out. It's gotten better since I got my gall bladder out, but while I still had it, I think about the only thing that helped were chewable gas relief pills.

i still get it when i am on the constipated side and nothing wants to move at all and it really hurts.  it usually makes my abdomen distend as well; i have to start taking my amitiza when i get like that and it usually helps - i will eventually have a bm and pass a lot of gas.

My mother and I have suffered with trapped gas our lives long. It can be extremely painful and i sympathise with anyone who gets this.
The way we handle it is thus:
Sip warm water, slowly, untill gas starts to move. If this does not work:
about 2 inches of warm water, very warm but not hot, so that you can drink it. One teaspoon of bicarbinate of soda. Stir it in and down in one go. Very salty so be warned. If you dpont start to burp and pass gas within an hour, same again. My mum, who does not have ibs, just nervous tummy, finds that if she curls in a ball and rocks after taking the bicarb it helps things along. This does not help me, so its you call.
Warning, i was told bicarb was not good for people with high BP, but my mum is fine with it, and on 2 occasions it has given me an awful D attack, but then no gas after. This is just something we do, passed on down the generations of bad tummy's on my mothers side!

I take one Dulcolax and it helps or Maalox Max or simethicone. Sometimes have to take both. It really gets stuck in me. The fetal position does help. Stay away from cold water and ice and the gas will be much less.

I have noticed that regular exercise helps a lot with gas and abdominal distention problems, especially exercises that flex and stretch the abdominal and core muscles. Walking and drinking plenty of water are also very helpful. I feel that a lot of IBS symptoms stem from a slow metabolism and the key is to improve/speed up ones metabolism. Correct diet and exercise seem to be helping me a lot.
