FLATULENCE

I suffer from excessive flatulence that is becoming difficult to control and causing me untold embarrassment. It happens mostly when I''m at gym doing crunches or at Yoga when I have to squeeze my abdomen. During the night, I also have a lot of " wind"  and my partner doesn''t appreciate it! I have tried probiotics, charcoal tablets, Colofac and various other remedies to no avail.

Hallo Lindsay
You may have a food intolerance or irritable bowel syndrome. I suggest you see a gastroenterologist for a proper examination (he may want to send stool to the lab, check your pancreas and do a colonoscopy to exclude bowel disease)
