I fart every min when I am in a closed room. It's frustrating. Why does this happen?

EVERYBODY passes: Gas, on average, 20+ times a day. Some people are more sensitive to the smell. But if you are truly passing gas every minute it may mean that you have an allergy, especially to lactose: milk, cheese, yogurt.

Time for an talk/evaluation with your Doctor. ...Read more

You: You can try taking beano prior to eating foods that cause gas, or try taking gas x after you eat if you experience gas pains or bloating. In additon try cutting down on dairy products and limit your fiber intake if you are eating a high fiber diet. Fiber is good for you, however you have to start out eating very little and slowly increasing over time.
