Unhappy intestinal and stomach gas

What can I do for this? I take acidolifulus and fiber worsens it when I am this gassy I can not have a bowel movement. Docs put me on prevacid it is not helping. So miserable! I have tried peppermint/ginger too.Help please! fiber causes a stuck ileo valve.

Take Phazyme, over-the-counter, I couldn't live without it, I have IBS and terrible gas buildup and constipation sometimes. Also, I take Papaya tabs or other digestive enzymes, it makes a world of difference -- plus -- DRINK LOTS OF WATER! (not overly much, but I drink 2 liters a day, at least) That moves things through. If you are taking a fiber supp, take the liquid one and follow it with more water. I can't take the fiber pills at ALL. If I am not careful with the metamucil liquid and flush it through with plenty of water, I get a "stuck" feeling.

Have you tried Pyllium husks? It comes in powder and whole husks, but the powder mixed with juice is easier
to get down.

Therapeutic profile: a smoothing, lubricating, mucilagenous herb with drawing and cleansing laxative properties. Primary uses: either alone or in combination with other fiber herbs as a "colon broom" for chronic constipation; effective for inflammatory diverticulitis; a balancer and regulatant for digestive and colon bacteria. Secondary uses: as a lubricant for ulcerous mucosal lining tissue.
