    Have you tried beano? I haven't so I don't know the success rate.

    I'm assuming you discussed this with your doctor, but have you looked at the foods you eat. I know there are some foods that cause nasty effects when I eat them.

    I think its an OTC near Tums and such. I think you take it before you eat. Like I said, I've never tried it. Good luck
