Ah. Farts. This is one of the times when the virtual world of the internet comes into its own. Well, as they say it's an ill wind that nobody blows good. Or something like that....
Some foods create more gas, and hence more farts, than others ( bake beans, black pepper, etc ). Worrying about the possibility of an ill-timed fart leads to worry and tension which increasesd the likelihood of farting. And, as you've noticed when you manage to forget about i and stop worrying the risk of actually producing wind diminished.
this i a behavioural problem, where CBT would probably help. I'm curious about how readily doctors these days leap to do a gastroscopy.
