Air in body?: I'm not quite sure what you mean by there being so much air in your body. Perhaps you mean gas? Please excuse me if i misunderstood you, but i also see that iron tablets are on your medication list. Sometimes these can cause constipation, indigestion, and gas. Please speak with your own doctor about this air problem, so you can get the help you need.
