Have you had your gall bladder checked to make sure it's working properly ? If your stool has shiny,slimy textured look to it then maybe you need to look at how much fat is in your diet. Many of the foods that are high in fat can also make you gassy.
I can tell you from my own experience when I get trapped gas and passing gas that's usually a pretty good indication that I need to move my bowels because that is the only way it's relieved. I go into the bathroom sit on the toilet and place my hand just below the belly button and push in and downward that pressure helps you to relieve some the gas that is trapped and the pressure you place on the abdomen helps you to move your bowels very soon afterwards. If not then I use slow deep breathing continuously until I have moved my bowels. This is the only way I have found not only relieves the trapped gas pressure but it helps to relax your muscles to make it easier to move your bowels without straining. I sure this helps you like it does for me.
