I attended a dinner party on Saturday night and had already been C for 4 days which is a rarity for me and about two hours before the meal the gas that had been built up in me moved into my chest. It got so painful that I couldn't catch my breath and I could feel it moving around. I actually had to sit down I got weak from it. After an hour of suffering like this my foster mom brought me a glass of wine. I don't normally have anything to drink unless I plan to a few days in advance because of my meds. But at that point I didn't care. It settled down about 15 mintues before the meal and started its way back down into my system. I said to my mom seat me closest to the door because I knew that I was going to have to run at least once during the meal and didn't want to jump over guests. Well if I thought the pain was bad I think the embaressment was worse. The gas started to moved and you would hear these loud rumbles and out it came even squessing my butt didn't help. I would go to the bathroom and sit to see if that would relieve and nothing would come out. The monemt I would sit back at the table bang it would start again. Thank god the talk was loud my Mom said she couldn't hear me and she was next to me but knew that something was wrong because I was squirming and my hubby was watching my face and knew the embaressed look. My mom gave me another glass of wine to help me threw the dinner. What do you guys do in situations like this.
