Hi everyone. I"ve been lurking around this board for awhile now but this is my first post. It's good to know that I'm not the only one out there with gas issues. Anyway, I have had rectal gas problems for awhile now and have been desperately looking for ways to get rid of it. Well, 23 medicines and numerous diets later nothing has worked for me and it's driving me crazy. Anyway, I heard about this underwear product called "under-ease" over the newsradio(it was an actual news story from the Associated Press, not a commercial: http://1010wins.com/StoryFolder/story_55423947_html) and I was wondering if anyone else here has ever used it? I ordered mine from the company but I was wondering if anyone else here has had any experience with them? I tried doing a search for it on this site, but didn't pull up anything. Any comments would be helpful. O, by the way, if you're curious, here is their website: http://www.under-tec.com/ thanks everyone. Bye.
