Maybe, maybe not. If you have gas, it must pass eventually. So if you donï¿½t ever pass it, there had been no gas. You can still think you have it though..in that case, and that apparently is the usual case, the discomfort is from IBS itself. That is, the discomfort seems to be caused by hypersensitive pain nerves. In IBS, then, what is happening in the gut and what the gut feels are often not related.quote:is this what i think it is? and if it is
Absorption into the body occurs, but the rate at which this occurs is too slow compared to the amount of gas being produced or entering from the atmosphere.. you could try to get around this by fasting and essentially stopping gas production..then you just have to worry about the contribution from air swallowing...but without fasting, you end up bursting before the gas got absorbed. So that is why if you don't pass gas, then you don't have gas.quote:The gas doesn't always have to be passed, apparently it can be reabsorbed by the body
I have had trapped gas for 2-4 days at a time and I did not burst, yet it was most certainly trapped gas as shown in xrays. And the reason I was not passing it was because it was trapped.My advice to any of you suffering with what you feel might be trapped gas:1) Ignore Flux2) Ask your doctor to try an anti-spasmodic drug like Bentyl or Librax.Trapped gas is real and it is also treatable.

For normal amounts of gas, this is not probably not that much.quote:I have had trapped gas for 2-4 days at a time
What med? Aspirin is not related to any antispasmodic.quote:I did a bit research and one of the warnings is if you have a reaction to asprin not to take this med
