I have that too, it's so embarrassing. My doctor doesn't take it seriously at all but it keeps me from living a normal life.

I don't really know what to tell you on this one. Have you tried gas medications? Have you tried increasing your fiber? Or, if you have a high fiber diet that you don't tolerate well, decreasing your fiber could have an impact as well.
