My stomach is always bloated I have been taking Senokot S for a long time. I was dg as having IBS. Plus now I also have been using Flax Seeds.Not that matters to my question. I eat health excercise some what in the Winter months.My stomach don't seem to go down at all. Just wondering.
Yes it can.I have the same problem.As you bowls [intesions] are very long And even though you have a bowl movement it does not always empty.And you can hold alot of gas
My friend Cleo is correct. Two products one is called "beano" or just plain simethicone taken before eating can help if you have gas. I found a large bottle of plain ole' simethicone at a dollar store yesterday, which is the same ingredient as Beano. The old folk remedy is taking a teaspoon of baking soda in a half galss of water. Stir rapidly & drink all at once. This also will help with gas & bloating, & indigestion. As Cleo pointed out so well, just because you are having a daily bowel movement does not mean you are empty. I kind of fell into something the other day by increasing my intake of magnesium ( I think this is what is doing it & I have IBS too,) to 250mg a day, I am having several bowels movementys a day. It is not uncomfortable at all, & the bloating is about gone. I can't tell you why this is working as I have not researched it, but since I incresed this as it was all the pharmacy had on their buy one get one free, this has helped my IBS tremendously. why??? I don't know, but may be something that you could also try...
