Q.

painful gas from bottom at 11 months

good day doctor my little one is 11 months old. she suffers from painful farts. she is lactose intolerant and is on nan lactose free. she suffers from this from birth. we keep her on a limited diet. i used to give her mag phos tablets in rooibos tea which did help for a while. i then tried spasmopep which wasnt very effective. she has lots of long strings of gas from the bottom. what could be the cause? she has been for many tests: barrium enima, barrium swallow, blood tests, dairy rast, mites rast. please help me. no doctor has been able to help me. there also isnt a gastronologist in pmburg. ive been told that gas is a sign of cervical cancer. please help me. it wakes her from sleep about five times a night. im desperate.

thank you in advance

Paediatrician

There may not be a gastroenterologist in PMB but there are good paediatricians. Please try and see Dr OF Jooma about this complaint. Also ask him if he thinks it is worthwhile trying Pankreoflat or similar treatment for your baby.

did you have her stool tested and is this how you found out she is lactose intolerent? Does she have an allergy..dustmites etc? I ask because there are a few of us where the symptoms are the same

I had a similar prob and no one could help my child I think that some children are just allergic to all forms of milk ...I tried everything with my little one (now 2 and 1/2) and only since she is off the milk completely she is finally sleeping thru ......hang in there its really tough
