I need an opinion as to what this could be! My daughter has what appears to be "gas pockets". When she presses in to parts of the colon, it sloshes around and sounds like a water bed! She is continually burping, and finds it extremely difficult to expel the gas from the rectum. This builds up throughout the day, and she finds it so painful. She can't get to sleep most mornings till 4 AM because of this. What could be causing this gas? What tests should we be doing? Thank you.
