    Internal Gas (not farting)

    Hi all. I didn't know how to tackle this topic in a way to ensure it is kept civilized So please note I am NOT talking about farting, of which I believe there are more than enough threads!

    Not too often but on occassion (around every 2 weeks) I get terrible internal gas. What it feels like is being very bloated inside. It feels almost explosive inside, but never is. Almost like when there is a large amount of gas or extrement going to come out, but doesn't. It subsides after about 5-6 hours but during that time it is very uncomfortable.

    Anyone know what this is, what can cause it, and how to treat these symptoms when they arise?

    I had the same thing when starting out my diet. Trust me it will pass. Your body will eventually "learn" how to digest everything properly and you will be set, just keep at it!

    Thanks for the tip. However the diet has been stable for nearly a year (ie. no drastic changes in macro breakdowns or new/different foods. It sort of comes and goes intermittently. Sometimes it can happen once a week for a month, then it will totally subside for 2 months etc.

    Look into some probiotic yoghurts. Activia does a good one (UK).

    Doesn't the gas need to get out?

    Does the body digest gas?

    If the gas is internal, doesn't it need to go somewhere? Is there such a thing as internal gas and external gas?

    Thanks melon. Was thinking of adding something like digestive enzymes, maybe will give yogurt a go too.

    pickitup - what I was refering to was the fact that the gas doesn't come it. It is not like when you have gas leading to flatulence; rather it stays inside giving a crappy, bloated feeling in the stomach/intestine region.

    I think I understood you, but...

    I guess I am having a tough time dealing with what you are saying.
    It is hard for me to imagine gas NOT coming out of the body. Is it broken down to solid (or liquid) waste products eventually? How does the body deal with internal gas?

    Eventually it does come out I am simply saying that unlike normal where it results in flatulence quickly, it sits inside building up pressure and allround discomfort for a good few hours before release.

    Well something in your diet is not being digested properly.

    Supplements you could take would be proteolytic enzymes (RenewLife's DigestMore is one I take) or acidophilius (non-dairy is best).

    Other factors:
    * Lactose intolerance can set in later in life. Teens, adulthood... Lactaid is then your friend.
    * Meat, especially red meat, often sits undigested in the intestines and, well....rots, causing gas build up. If you eat a lot of meat, make sure you also ingest high levels of fiber. Caution, as psyllium fiber can itself, cause gas. Use another kind.
    * Some people have sensitivites to wheat and gluten. If you suspect this, only eat brown rice as a grain for a while and see if the problem is solved.

    Lastly, believe it or not, spice up your foods! Cumin, fennel, and others are all carminative and can help with gas.
