Bloating: Can you pinpoint symptoms to eating certain foods like dairy products(lactose intolerance), wheat products(gluten intolerance), heavy fiber foods like salads,undercooked vegetables, fruits? Taking simethicone 1/2 hour after meals prevents gas buildUp. Drinking hot water or applying heat to the abdomen breaks down the gas enabling you to pass it rectally. See a gastroenterologist as needed.
