Is anyone else experiencing extreme gas pains and constipation? Any natural cures?

I have gas pains. When I'm about to pa__s gas it almost feels like it's coming down from my spine. I also would like to know if there are any cures. I used to have constipation as well, what I did was eat lots of oatmeal. I always eat cereal (one that has fiber) and I eat oatmeal in the afternoon.

Increase your fruit and veggie intake as well as lots of fluids. I've also read that metamusil or something would help too, but check with doc first.

Hey newmommy - I too have suffered with horrible gas pain, like nothing I could ever describe. I wouldn't say I was constipated b/c I would go every day or every other day, but God it would hurt to go and the gas pain before it was overwhelming. My dr. recommended Senecot-S but since I wasn't really constipated it gave me diarhea so I switched to a plain stool softener (no lavative). I took those for about 3 weeks - 1 per day and it made a HUGE difference in the amount of pain I was having. I didn't want to become dependent on them so I switched to Metemucil tablets - just 2 a day and it is keeping up the good work! I'd rather just put extra fiber in my body than rely on the stool softener and it's been working! Good luck!
