essay on flatulence

So I've been having lower abdominal pain the past 2 nights, (this might be too much information) and usually I would just suspect gas pain. But because I am prego and a bit of a hypochondriac anyways, I decided that I wanted to be sure it wasn't volvulus or burst appendicitis. So I opened up the MERK manual (of diagnosis and therapy) and while perusing for a diagnosis found the following Essay on Flatulance. It had me rolling on the floor at 6:30 in the morning. What do you think? (sorry its hard to read)

That is hilarious! And very fitting for you I might add... :)

This pregnancy towards that beginning/middle I was having some horrible pains too. Like wake me up and keep me up in the night for a couple hours. I called the doc about it cause it kept on happening, and she said it was trapped gas. Lovely! :)

So if you have it again-you need to take gas-x or malanox (spell?) and if it kills while you're waiting for that to set in, you can try getting in the shower-it helps.

K, hope that helps.

thanks for the tip nellie - im pretty sure that must be what it is. these are wake me up in the night for a few hours pains too. I think ive had too much too much beans over the past few days (: I've found that a hot shower does help - so that must be it!
