From this study (4 weeks 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.

i have had stomach ulcers in the past and kidney cancer to which i recovered. during the past two years ive been in constant excrutiating pain from my stomach upwards to my ribs. my consultant originally said it was my pancreas but now he says my bowel is so swollen its large and this would explain my massive bloating and feeling unable to breathe. my daughter has studied my symptoms as i see her regularly and said it was crohns. my consultant said it could be but feel i need a correct diagnosis as then could get the correct medication. i do feel bit better since taking lactulose buscopan and have taken lansoprazole since my stomach ulcer
From this study (2 months ago):
