  1. Thanks for reaching out. I'd encourage you to speak with your doctor about any new, changing or concerning symptoms, if you haven't already. In addition to speaking with your doctor, this article may be helpful: https://irritablebowelsyndrome.net/symptoms/bloating-common-sign-symptom-of-ibs.

    1. Try peppermint tea

      1. I'm so sorry that you're dealing with this, trapped wind can be so uncomfortable and painful. Maybe you will find some helpful ideas in this article and forum? https://irritablebowelsyndrome.net/living/severe-bloat, https://irritablebowelsyndrome.net/forums/trapped-wind-every-night-for-a-year-is-it-ibs-please-help. For me personally, cutting out gluten helped a lot, as well as eating in a calm environment (not while stressed or working/chasing around my kids at the same time) and taking the time to chew my food properly. I know this sounds like it wouldn't make much of a difference, but to me it truly does. I hope you'll get some relief soon. Karina (team member)
