    I have this a lot, and I usually lay flat on the floor on my stomach, then sit up, back very very straight and hey presto....well sometimes, other times it doesn't work at all... thats not a lot of help really is it?

    Sorry, hope it shifts quickly xxx

    I've heard drinking a can of fizzy as fast asyou can will force you to burp - but I've no idea if it'd actually work.

    Hope you feel better soon

    Burnt toast is meant to be effective as it absorbs the windy pop gas

    If you lay on your back with your butt raised up against the sofa you'll find that as hot air tends to travel in an upward direction the air trapped in your intestines will eventually find the only exit available it! :)

    peppermint in any form! plus walking around.

    i recently had keyhole surgery - as part of it they fill your abdomen with gas so that they can see what they're doing - and peppermint is what the hospital advised to help get rid of the awful trapped gas pains afterwards.

    I would usually go for andrews liver salts, but if i don't have that then i would go for rennies or something similar. Failing that, gentle movements or jiggling about, sounds silly but I finds that it shoogles your insides about a bit and moves the wind to a more comfortable position.:)

    Sipping slightly cooled boiled water is supposed to be good.

    Always worth a try if you have got nothing else in the house. :)

    Hope you're feeling better today.

    For future reference try rubbing your belly to the side just under your rib cage with the flat of your hand in a circular motion,it helps with constipation as well.

    thank you, it was a great tip, I'll keep it in mind in case there's a next time. I'm not exactly sure what caused it, only thing that really affects me is orange juice of any sort (can't stand it, get such agonising pain with it feels like I'm dying), so I avoid that, but other stuff is generally ok. I'm picky with food/drink though either cos I don't like them or they make me feel bad, so maybe I've just gotten a sensitive stomach.

    Awful isn't it? Orange tango, orangeade, orange juice, orange squash, actual oranges, you name it. The pain is absolutely crucifying, to the point I have cried to be knocked out so I couldn't feel it:(. I couldn't understand what it was to start with, but soon worked out that whenever I'd had anything orange (particularly to drink) I'd feel like this 5 minutes later. Not sure if it's the acid in them (lemons and limes don't bother me), or whether it's a reaction of some sort.

    I always have peppermint tea in the house for such times. OH moans and says 'But I don't like it' And I reply 'So what you know it works!' He then drinks it with a face like a bulldog licking wee off a nettle and voila! Within half an hour it's gone!
