    Hi sixtyslady,

    I haven't tried this but have seen commercials for "beano". Maybe someone will respond that has tried it.

    Hope you get better,

    but sometimes get gas pains that feel like someone is cutting me into and I use store brand gas relief soft gels and they work fine.

    I think my last ones came from CVS, but any gas relief should do. Believe me, I know how bad it hurts. We were at the race in Charlotte when I got hit last time and it felt like I was in labor it hurt so bad.

    I have found Gas X extra strength works well for me. I take two of the gel caps when I feel it coming on and within 30 minutes I am usually feeling better.

    its better today, but thanks for the suggestions I will keep them in my reference book, it really helps to have one so I can remember what different remedies are for.
    you guys are great and I really thank everyone on the board.
    before I found this board I felt hopeless, now I know I can find help and understanding.

    Although I really had to resist the urge to say just rare back and let 'er rip..

    Seriously, my doctor had me use Gas X extra strength after a surgery where they blew up my stomach. The gas had risen up into my collar bones and I've never had gas pains like that before in my life. The pain from the gas was actually worse than the pain from the surgery. I don't know what I would have ever done without the Gas X, and I've used it ever since. It's good stuff and a couple of them usually work pretty quick.

    Good luck....

    I"ll try it. thats my problem I can"t let it rip. so I really suffer, worse than labor pains just have to go to bed when I get like that and lay on my left side with a heating pad, helps alittle.
    a nurse told me that in the e.r.

    Hi Sixtylady
    I use Peppermint oil. You can get it on the net or at a herb shop. I use Natures Sunshine Peppermint Oil and just a drop on the back of your hand, then lay your tongue on it. That makes it sanitary for anyone to use. It stops gas,heartburn and bad breathe almost instantly and you can use it as often as you like. It won't stop your food from digesting as an antacid will.
    I don't know why more people hasn't discovered it yet. Really wonderful!
