I have had alot of painful trapped gas these last two weeks. My Doc told me that Beano before meals works better than simethicone. I have been popping alot of Beano, 2-3 pills,4x a day. I also just started acacia, but inadvertently took more than I was taking with benefiber.(one day only, dropped down to 1 tbl) I stopped both because of so much trapped gassince then. Did I just start too many things at once? Or should I start back on the Benefiber? I was up to 1 tbl 2x a day but i stopped it thinking I was stable. Took only a tsp this morning and ate only BTC diet. If anyone can help, I am flying tonight on vacation and am worried about gas! Taking Bentyl 1pm and 7 pm tonight to help with pain. Dont have any problems with flying but now worry about sitting for 4-5 hours staight. I know, worrying is why I feel so bad.HELP!!

IBS-C bloating and gas predominant.

Well, fennel tea relieves trapped gas nicely (at least for me and a lot of people have said so on this board). You can try that once you come back.

Acacia could cause gas if you take too much... You need to take a little and let your body adjust, then take a little more... gradually increase.

Personally, I've found flying halts my intestines. I don't have much gas in airplanes, as I don't get as hungry. Have you noticed how small food on the plane is? It's still too much...

Don't worry about the gas. If there's too much, get an aisle seat and go to the bathroom once in a while. But I hope it will be OK. Have a great vacation.

I have a lot of bloating, caused by C and trapped gas.
What do you suggest, fennel, gas-x?
