    I had that a few months back, I was in complete agony. Best thing to take is peppermint oil capsules or peppermint tea. Took a day or so to work for me but believe me when it worked the relief is unreal!

    I had exactly the same a few weeks back, the pain is awful! I tried everything to get rid of it but I think stressing about it just made it worse! Im so glad I don't have it anymore! Hope it goes away for you soon!

    I have had it really bad after having a big dinner. Try taking Deflatine - it has worked for me! Good luck

    hi, ok i dont get trapped wind unfortunately, i just let rip wherever i am!!

    BUT i do know what helps...sometimes my boyfriend does this to me when im laying on the sofa as he knows it makes me...ahem...gassy! and i cant stop it!!!

    its the bicycle legs thing, like what you do with babies to make them poo, lay down on sofa or bed or something, and just get your OH or someone to hold your feet and "pedal" your legs around, as if your going backwards on a bike. it helps if someone else does it as they apply pressure to legs which helps...i cant do it on my own LOL

    it looks and sounds very strange, but it works for me and it works on babies!!!!

    give it a go for a few minutes, you may be pleasantly surprised :) xx

    Hot peppermint tea may help. I don't really like peppermint tea, but it does help when I feel very bloated and uncomfortable with trapped wind.

    Also you can do some walking. It may help releasing the wind. Sometime I have that problem at night, and I just walk around on the living room while I massage my belly in circular motion.
