Trapped wind in chest

(10 Posts)

Hi all, I've been suffering with trapped wind in my chest the last couple of weeks. I'm just over 12 weeks gone and usually trying to burp brings it up but when it's stubborn and I can't bring it up it makes me feel sick which leads to me being sick. I've had quite bad MS too. Any tips to get rid of it without getting to the point of being sick?xx

Down a can of coke / sprite etc as quick as you can, you won't be able to stop the burping grin

Alternatively I found that a few yoga stretches sorted out my trapped wind so also worth a try.

Yeah I don't know yoga but lying flat on the floor then slowly bringing yourself upright while breathing deeply might be a similar thing to try. And maybe deflatine or one of those remedies, but check which ones you can take.

If it persists see GP. I had big gas issues, chest and elsewhere (I was a joy to be around!) finally got meds which have saved my sanity, sleep and probably marriage!

Short term - peppermint tea or even hot water can relieve some of these symptoms. Longer term, I agree with Pickle, ask your GP for meds.

Urgh. I remember this well..... It did ease after 5ish months if I recall correctly! I found that hitting/tapping myself in the chest repeatedly whilst my husband/colleague/friend did the same between my shoulder blades was most pleasant!!!!

Give up wheat for a week and see if it resolves things. Doing this worked for two pregnant people I know

Ah thanks everyone for the suggestions, I may opt to see the dr if it persists. Mine almost feels like there is something stuck at the bottom of my throat, was it like this for anyone else?xx

Peppermint tea ... or there is a syrupy thing you can get (also peppermint)
