What is trapped wind?
Trapped wind can be uncomfortable and embarrassing. Almost everyone gets it at least once, but not many people admit it. It can make you look and feel bloated. You might feel the need to belch or break wind, and your stomach may gurgle loudly.
You get trapped wind when your digestive system has problems getting rid of its natural gases, making tiny air bubbles collect in your stomach and lower intestine. This build up of pressure causes you discomfort and sometimes pain.
What you eat, how you eat and when you eat can all lead to trapped wind. Some types of food such as beans and cauliflower can add to the gases in your stomach. Eating too quickly and eating at bedtime can also make air bubbles build up.

Trapped wind advice
Trapped wind can be painful and embarrassing, but changing your eating habits can help. Take control with these tips:
Eat the right food. Some foods create more gas than others. Try keeping a diary to find the foods that trigger your wind, and then take steps to avoid them. Beans, onions, broccoli, cabbage, sprouts and cauliflower are well known to make you gassy. You may find fruit juice, fizzy drinks and dairy products add to the problem. The way your food is cooked can also make a big difference.
Eat the right way. If you eat too quickly you can swallow large chunks of food that haven’t had time to get fully coated with saliva. You may also gulp down lots of air. All this hampers your digestion. It’s much better to take your time when you eat. Chew well and swallow with your mouth closed.
Eat at the right time. Let your digestive system work smoothly and efficiently. Try and get into the habit of eating regular meals, and eat your last meal at least 3 hours before bed.
