cry  Has anyone experience trapped gas that starts around rib cage, travels to the lower back that make you bend over and want to cry cause you can't push anything out then finally gas starts to pass that it becomes loud and seems to be never ending gas?  Well this has been happening to me almost every day now.  I first noticed that it was happening at least one a month then twice now it's everyday.  Sometimes I just want to go to the emergency room so that they can take the pain away.  When am home and get this attack am able to lay down and work out what ever is pined.  At work am not getting much done anymore.  Pain seems to be all day long.  OH, I take 10 to 15 mg of oxicodone and it tappers off the pain.  Another reason why my work isn't getting done.  
Any thoughts, fed back is always appricated.   Thanks sad

A nurse once suggested walking up and down steps dislodges gas. I use this trick here at home and it truly does work. Sometimes I just do knee bends if I'm in public, in a bathroom stall, the gravity thing helps too. She also suggested taking your hand and managing your stomach, beginning on the lower right where colon starts, work your way up, gently pushing down as you go, across and then down on your left side. She said this works out the gas bubbles as well.

you can try some gas-x BEFORE You get gas. I like to take them everyday. It will help after you get gas, but it helps to keep me from getting it at all.
I am not sure if you could do this at work, but lying on your back and sort of bicyling your legs helps alot, or pulling your knees up to your chest and then lowering them over and over, also walking, and rocking back and forth.
think of things that people do to comfort babies, lol. suckign on something can also help, i wouldn't suggest a pacifer at work though, lol. it needs to be something that air won't get in aroudn though.
