Alot of people say fresh OJ but thats a myth. Fresh figs are fab, they = woosh. They're only small too so you could hold your nose whilst you swallow one. If not - peppermint tea, peppermints, peppermint capsules...you get the idea. This is prescribed to anyone that has had surgery on the stomach/womb area as it dissapaits the trapped wind that is inevitably left after they close you up. Does actually work.

It's so reassuring to know you're all suffering from this too! I think I've developed piles now as well - or at least I think it's pile - not going into detail but it's incredibly sore and I'm too embarrassed to visit the doctor about it!
Fresh fruit seem to work for me. I hate prunes (was force-fed them as a child due to constipation) and dried fruit, and bran flakes etc.. yes I'm very fussy. However, out of utter desperation last week I went on a fresh fruit shopping spree and filled up my basket with all my favourites - melon, strawberries, pink lady apples... and have been making myself a large fresh fruit salad each day and you know what? It's not only extremely yummy but seems to have got me moving again too. Do drink lots as well though as I also think that's part of my problem as I drink very little and am very bad.
i forgot i had posted this...thank you for all teh replies!
Have sticked up on fresh fruit so will see if that works...am not too bad today actually
moondog, trapped wind for me emans literally wind that gets trapped. not always farts or burps, sometimes wind just dissipates without needing to come out but at the moment it is gettuing stuck and it hurts!!
