First of all, Hi, I AM new here, and glad to be here.

I have had this problem for over 25 years.

I have what is known as a lazy colon or a floppy colon depending on the doctor.
Aside from regular constipation I suffer and I mean this, from trapped intestinal gas.
I can and do look like I am ready to give birth. It is painful too as it presses on other bodily organs in the area. I've received so little help with this, I find it almost unbelievable.:rolleyes: and very hard to believe.

Does/has anyone had this? If so have you found relief?
I eat a very healthy diet. I exercise regularly. Yes, I could drink more water or a regular basis.
I'll keep it this short and yes, I know it's not short at all.
