Gas/constipation : This could be from constipation. Are you staying well hydrated? Be sure to eat slowly - it takes about 20 minutes for your stomach to catch up to your satiety level. Be careful about gas-inducing foods (such as beans, cabbage, cauliflower, broccoli, prunes, apricots, sweeteners, dairy, whole grains). If you've already tried a bunch of OTC medicines, it is best to see your doctor. Best wishes!
