Last night I got the worst attack ever. All I can figure is, it might have come on because of the big glass of orange juice I drank earlier in the day. It was burning and I could feel the trapped gas. All I wanted to do was burp and I couldn't, LOL. I resorted to my chewable antacids and it finally calmed down after a few hours. But if anyone knows of a more natural remedy, of course I'd be all ears (or eyes, anyway, in this case).
Try some chewable acidophilus in the morning.
I take garlic in pill form and it gives me severe gas
. If I chew 1-2 tablets of acidophilus an hour or so before taking the garlic, it really does help.... I use Natures Bounty purchased at CVS.
