I have NO idea why I'm in so much pain, I'm presuming its trapped wind. I'm bloated and have horrible pains in my tummy. How on Earth does trapped wind happen? How long does it last? I want to put a straw in my stomach to let the air escape!!
I did have some particularly fizzy coke at my MIL's house on Sat night at a BBQ, but I've had pain since Sun morning. Haven't had fizzy pop for ages (been living on cranberry juice, yummy! so perhaps not used to the fizz anymore?) Have got some windeeze, am going to take some more before bed. And try the cycle thing - luckily DH is out so I wont get questions as to why I look like a loon Should the hot water be plain or something in it? Thanks
chamomile tea also has tummy/wind easing properties too - for those who don't like peppermint tea
Other thing which may help is laying on back and massaging abdominal area using firm strokes with the flat of your hand in a clockwise direction. That's the same direction your digestive system moves in so will help ease things along.
its not yur gall bladder is it.So many women have gall stones and just think its wind.My stomach bloated out like a tight drum and i cud hardly lie down. next thing i was in 6 months later havin gall bladder out. no problems since
I remember getting trapped wind so bad once I seriously thought I was dying. I could hardly breathe. The emergency doctor was just on his way out to me at 5am or something. Then I walked around a bit, bent down to touch my toes and did an enormous fart. Voila!! All gone.
