    Flatulence!

    Some of you may have seen my posts about my ridiculous bloating and gas. I am finding it very hard to find out what the heck is the culprit of my bulging belly. I have pretty much had it all my life. Does anyone know what kind of intolerances cause lots of flatulence? It seems to be whenever I eat, pretty much anything too.
    I have been noticing that as soon as my food has been digested I can feel the gas bubbling up inside my tummy. And then within 5 minutes the flatulence is starting. It becoming the norm for me. So much that I am dong them all day and not even realising when I am because it's such a common occurance. And they are (TMI) huge most of the time. And loud
    I am sick of this gassy, bloated problem! Can anyone help? Does anyone know what it could be? I thought it was dairy, but i switched to oat milk and this is still happening. Also, who can I see about this? What kind of specialist?

    White processed flour - so bread and pasta, cakes, etc - will do it to me.
    How much flour do you eat?

    Thanks Limeslice, I eat bread, pasta and cakes (sometimes )
    I think I may need to see a specialist about it. I just can't figure it out on my own. Hope I can get to the bottom of it all..

    Flatulence!

    Might be worth paying attention to how you are chewing & swallowing, make sure you're not gulping down any air. You could try having nothing except a piece of bread, if you get a reaction that could implicate either wheat or gluten. Add some probiotics in too, in case it's not about intolerances at all.

    Probiotics sound good. I'm hoping it's not an intolerance. Will let you all know after I start taking some
