Conditions with symptom: 'wind'
I have been suffering with excessive wind since i have had my baby 12 months ago is there something which could have caused this during child birth because i never suffered before this, now i have no control over when i pass wind as though perhaps some muscles have been damaged is this possible? if i cough i pass wind at the same time it is really embarrasing.

Hello my name is Henry i am 52. I have for a long time now suffered from wind indigestion and have for the last 5 days had very loose stools, going to the toilet 4 times a day. I have a feeling of bloatedness, nausia and have noisy wind movement around my abdomen. Can you please help as tis in embarrassing in my job.
Hi I wonder if anyone can help. My son has had this on a few occsdions so I am a bit worried. When he passes wind his bum gets wet and some poo comes out I just wondered if this is normal? Its not everytime he passes wind just on some occasions.
My husband suffers with alot of wind from both ends! he is always really bloated after eating the smallest mealand passes wind all the time alot of the time without warning. Hes getting very embarresed by it now is there a diet factor that could be causing this?
Tell him to go to his doc and get tested for Helicobacter pylori. I had the exact same thing, the smallest amount of food and i felt like I was going to explode. The test is easy you drink this drink, I can't remember what its called, blow into a bag and they send the result to your doctor. If you have it its normally treated with antibiotics, from what I remember I had two antibiotics and one to reduce the acid in my stomach then you go back after two or three weeks when you've finished the antibiotics and get tested again to make sure its gone. Get it sorted though, I left mine too long and its contributed to painful stomach ulcers.
Hi I recently started to pass blood a lot when I go for a poo and I have stopped passing regular hard stools. It is now all watery and I'm full of wind. Been like it for 2 weeks now but never had a problem before. I am a healthy 25 year old but concerned and embarrassed on what to do about it as its just come on. I can't pass wind now either for fear of passing a form of discharge! What's it likely to be?? Many thanks
Hey, I would firstly say seeing your GP is best. However I think your mention of "hard stools" suggests you may be chronically constipated, stools are supposed to be well formed but soft. If you find you normally strain a bit when you pass a stool this could also be a sign. The bleeding is most likely to be a symptom of haemorrhoids, do you feel slight pain, especially if you have to strain? The trapped wind is also a giveaway that you may be slightly constipated. I am a healthy female of the same age and had the same problem, I typically passed hard stools then I experienced passing loose stools on occasion and trapped wind. I had a general check up and my doctor kindly informed me that I was "full of poo"! I was advised to use mild laxatives or prunes. The best way to combat the problem is to ensure you have enough fibre and drink 8 cups of water a day. Also I squeeze some lemon juice into tepid water and have that first thing in the morning, that helps me. But again, sudden changes and the presence of blood in your stools suggest you should see a GP to get absolute peace of mind. Hope that was somewhat helpful.
I had my gallbladder removed about a year ago. But ever since I've been experiencing terrible wind after meals. I'm vegan so thought I was experienced with issues of wind but it's not the normal flatulence I felt before, my whole stomach bloats up and the smell is absolutely rancid (think dog farts) and hangs in the air for hours after, and the smell hangs on my underwear. I need to go every 20-30 seconds or it gets very uncomfortable. After fatty meals I get diarrhea so I avoid these, and have assumed it was fat that causes the flatulence. To some degree I can avoid the wind by eating a mostly veg/ fruit diet with some carbs like bread and rice, but something as little as spread on a piece of toast or my soya milk will set it off again. Does anyone have any clue on what this is or how to solve it? It only happened after I had my gallbladder removed
i suffer from the same avoiding fatty foods and spicey things does help as this helps you to go the toliet like everyone else, i had mine removed 2 years ago no advice and am still struggling with food, didnt get no advice from hospital, i didnt consider myself as fat when i had mine removed ive put more weight on since still dnt knw wot 2 eat, but i dnt eat as much takeaway food eg mackys chippys pizzas etc now only once a month x i think the best thing is 2 eat more protein and not carbs like they say online x
i am a 23year old female just diagnosed with IBS.I take buscopan for it when my stomach is distended and bloated,however i feel like i always need to pass wind all the time for my stomach to be completely flat and not hurt.I also pass wind after eating sometimes which i find very disturbing.I live a very helathy lifestyle,i exercise 3 times a week and eat very healthy.I was wondering if there are any useful suggestions anyone could give me please.

Did you go to Dom Rep I have just come back from there same symptoms GP gave me METRONIDAZOLE said I had a Bug seems to be getting back to normal, Still very windy but at least my poo is looking better Give it a go Goodluck
I have severe wind which is uncontroleable. I have had many tests and they tell me all is normal and put it down to IBS. I am 43 and this started after chilbirth when I was 32. I dont eat at all during the day as it causes embaressement, no matter what I put inside me though certain foods make it worse. I had daily bowel movements before childbirth but not since and I now seem to have almost completely lost all sensations to pass a motion. When |I do though it does relieve the wind problem until I start eating again. This completely effects my quality of life, always working around this and having to think quick in order to escape! I do now suffer with severe anxiety and am desperate to sort this if it can be sorted, would a specialist be able to help? is there any operation?
i have something similar to you i am 24 and since i had my little boy 7 months ago i can not hold any wind in at all its really bad ive been the doctor they sent me to a specalist and they had a look with a camera and said there was nothing significant to cause my wind lost and just to do pelvic floor exercise so i have for the past 4 months and it is still just as bad!!!!! and i like you hardly eat because i dont want to be out with mates and have to keep running to the toilet before my wind drops or eeven the other. i to would like to know is there any thing that can be done please please
I have the same symptoms and my anxiety now is so bad, im 22 havent had a boyfriend in 3 years and wont do anything that involves me going far from a toilet and its ruining my life. To get wind and exposive toilet motions in front of a boyfriend is the most terrifing thing in the world!! I need help and i totally sympathise with you.
