    Hi guys
    I'm suffering really bad trapped wind it's so uncomfortable and annoying that I can't relieve myself. I'm worried incase maybe something more sinister than wind it's hard to tell.

    Anyone know what's effective and safe

    My doctor recommended lactulose which you can buy over the counter but that gave me diarrhoea - she also suggested peppermint oil which you can by in capsule form. Helped me loads and I don't have any pain from bloating or constipation anymore. I've now stopped taking them as I seem to be sorted. Perhaps peppermint tea as an alternative?

    Hiya, I drink peppermint tea which helps. I also have peppermint tablets but haven't used them in a while.

    Failing that, I lay on the floor with my legs in the air and slowly rotate until it comes out! Haha.

    Hope it gets sorted for you soon x

    I really found eating allbran chocky cereal helped and lactulose was great too but its just getting the dose right for your body, little and regular is better, but within24 hrs of taking id be pooping nicely, and the wind i got from being bunged up

    Yayyy for you being 11 weeks today pixi!!! Whens your scan?

    I find lying down in bed with my legs raised (feet on bed but knees up) really helps nature take its course!
