Re: What do gas pains feel like?

YES, gas pains can frequently feel like that -- but gas doesn't mean you need a laxative. Try cutting back on carbs a bit and see if that helps. If you feel constipated by all means use a laxative but make sure you really need one first. Laxatives can be addictive and set you up on a vicious cycle of constipation/laxative use and no chance for the bowel to work on its own.

As for the gas pains, mine are getting worse with advancing age and I know many people who feel they have more abdominal complaints, such as gas, as time marches on.

Try to also get enough exercise. I find that when I sit too long I get those stabbing little pains and sometimes more gas than when I am active. Isn't this fun?
