Trapped wind

Hi I had a rough weekend with my neck and shoulder pain i took stronger painkillers. When I went to bed Sunday Night I had a bit of wind in my stomach. In no time I had it in my stomach, chest and back, I also had a bit of acid reflux I was one big pain literally. I moaned so loud its a good job my neighbours are away lol. Do anyone else have trouble with wind?

  • Peppermint oil capsules are great for trapped wind if your doc oks them? The relief is immediate

  • Hi Paula8790

    I used to have awful acid reflux which was attributed to the number of meds I was taking on a daily basis .I would suffer with it for hours.

    The doctor prescribed me some omeprazole and since taking those I dont have a problem with acid reflux.

    Strangely enough my trapped wind seems to have dalmed down a bit.

    i have had a small change in meds which may account for it but it seems such a coincidence that they both improved around the same time.

    I am not totally free of trapped wind but a significant improvement has been noticed.

    I know people laugh about wind but its no laughing matter.It can be so painful and uncomfortable .

    Hope you find something soon that helps ease your symptoms.take care.



  • In fact any kind of minty sweet is better than nothing

  • Hi paula I have just finished my cup of peppermint tea it's great for trapped wind , and liquorice if you like that you also get peppermint and liquorice tea bags lol.

    I know it not funny the pain can be excruciating, I hope you get some relief

  • Can recommend charcoal tablets.

  • Hi Paula8790

    I really am so genuinely sorry to read this and it is can be so painful and unpleasant. I was wondering if you had taken NSAID's such as ibuprofen or Naproxen etc as this can cause this problem. I tend to use something like a Windeeze tablet in conjunction with a Ranitadine to help alleviate the issue. I want to sincerely wish you all the best of luck and please take care of yourself my friend.

    All my hopes and dreams for you
