Basically - just that!
In the last two months I have noticed a marked increase in gas.
Not particularly whiffy but can be noisy - what do I do???

Apparently you lose 65 calories with every fart so you should get slim. Sorry I am being helpful but it made me giggle when I read that on Facebook. smile

Just note down what you eat. For me, it's bread. And popcorn. In pregnancy it was broccoli. You might be intolerant of one type of food.

Thanks - it's just a bit weird after being fine for so long.
Grapes was my problem in pregnancy!
Loving the 65 calories grin

You can get charcoal tablets to help.

Yes keep a food diary, for a least a month, there must be a dietary cause.
I've heard that probiotics can help.
My stomach has become a lot less tolerant over the years and the list of foods that give me problems is steadily growing! [sad]

I sympathise because I suffer in exactly the same way! It's definitely to do with the foods you eat so keeping a diary is very good advice and logging the symptoms. I find that cutting out wheat, gluten and dairy do help and I take acidophils on a daily basis. Herbal teas help to calm the gut too. Hope that helps!

Onions for me

Could it be beetroot?

if there are other abdominal symptoms, get checked as it may not be due to food.
