Have same problems, not sure what it it, but just bending down I sometime go off with the wind. I hear some of us who have fibro have problems with wind. I find not eating sugars, no milk, and no bread helps.

Yes, I do too, If I go some where, I have to go in the other room or any little movement and wow!
Very embarressing. I have not had any encounters wwith anyone around. But I do leave the room quickly. I think its salads. I love salads and it seems that is what is doing it. :-(

YES! WITH EVERYTHING AND ANYTHING I EAT OR DRINK.
THE PAIN IS SOOOOOOOOOO SEVERE! SOMETIMES I THINK IM HAVING A HEART ATTACK OR DYING. MY PROBLEM IS THAT I CANT GET IT TO COME OUT! I HAVE PAIN AND PRESSURE IN MY CHEST, NECK, SHOULDERS, ARMS, AND BACK. I EAT SIMETHICONE TABLETS ALL DAY AND THEY DONT HELP. PLEASE LET ME KNOW IF YOU FIND SOMTHING THAT WORKS.

THANKS,
TRACIE

I find if you take a walk it relieves the pressure and you pass the high wind. Also I found if you bend down, straight down from your head and you touch your toes with your hands, repeat as often as needed, it helps to pass wind.

As for the pain, associated with the wind, ever think of taking probiotic in pill format, usually one will make you go, and that alone relieves constipation and less wind.

Try taking your fish oil (salmon oil), you get them at the pharmacy, taken everyday, three a day, will help you keep regular and this also helps.

No carbonated drinks, drinking water at room temperature instead of cold helps with the wind.

If it's been four months you need a gastroenterologist.

Here in the UK they sell something called Indian Brandee. Its a very old fashioned remedy and non alcoholic. I believe its also called Rhubarb tincture, You can buy it at chemists and take a spoonful or so in a little hot water. I have the same problem with wind and find this the best remedy. Good Luck.x
