    i would suggest you review your diet. inappropriate food combining is a major cause of gas, along with not chewing and swallowing properly.
    Don't cry because it is over, smile because it happened

    It is not uncommon for some SCI people to have alot of gas. It might be a combination of decreased mobility, diet, bowel care,etc.

    If you have tried various OTC products in the recommending strengths, some try a rectal tube inserted for short periods.

    I have the same problem. I solved most of it by not putting any seasoning on my foods. Season salt is the worst. A lot of resuarants use it. Its a killer.

    Try not putting any spices on your food for a couple of days and see if that helps. Because I had the same problem, and thats what it was.

    AAD; SCI NURSE; i can't log on to cc as much i wish

    but if i could, i probably could replace all my worthless doc visits.
    but then again, how else could the on going rx research get funded.
    yah,

    seriously, this bloat issue is mine too.
    what is a rectal tube?
    i afraid to ask,.

    Tim,
    It is a short piece of plastic tubing (similar to drainage bag tubing) that has a narrower end to insert in the rectum and the other end is open to the air-this gives the gas a mechanism to escape.
