    Exciting News for WebMD Members!

    We've been busy behind the scenes building new message boards for you. You'll have new and easier ways to find messages, connect with others, and share your stories.

    And, this will all be available on your smartphone or other mobile device!

    What Do You Need to Do?

    The message board you're used to will be closing in the coming weeks. While many of your boards will be making the move to our new home, your posts will not. Want to keep a discussion going? Save posts you want to continue (this includes your member profile story), so that you can re-post them in the new message boards.

    Keep an eye here and on your email inbox, we'll be back in touch soon to give you all the information you need!

    Yours in health,

    Excessive gas
    An_251333 posted:
    In the last few months I have had great issues after eating. It doesn't seem to matter what I eat. About 30 to 45 minutes after eating the horrible gas begins. I am a 60 year old female and still have all my female organs. Could this be an issue with my ovaries or is it intestinal do you think?

    It sounds like you may be reacting to a food you're ingesting. Consider taking a look at the 'food groups' you take in, and try an elimination diet. Many find that things within the dairy category can cause issues. If that might be your problem, try discontinuing all dairy products for a couple of weeks and see if that helps to solve the problem.
