Maybe you should try going for a jobby.

gaviscon is the best-tastes crap works a treat!

Go for a number two, and keep pushing, a newspaper helps to pass the time.

Deffo for instant relief. Half a teaspoon in half a glass of water usually works for me.

doesnt need to be that is but one problem it can cause.
My little brother gets it from lactose intolerance which cant always be avoided, but if he has too much in a day he feels it and is bucked over for hours at a time, and he just has to hack it and sips water to try and flush his system through.
