  • From this study (4 months ago):

  • Seems to really manifest itself right before bedtime, like it knows I'm going to bed. I have to raise my arms above my head, or lean back with arms stretched on my bed's foot board, sort of to stretch my chest. After being in that position, can't get to sleep as soon as I want, I then pass gas, big ones, and there is relief in my chest.
