    Default Childrens' Gas

    My son has Aspergers/ADD/ADHD, is 13 now, and has always been extremely gassy, and have been told by numerous health care folks that it is a side effect of the Aspergers, very common in fact, which I believe is true. It is getting to the point now where it is affecting him emotionally due to embarrassment and such and I have tried everything, such as changing his diet, gas-x... The gas bubbles build up in his belly to the point where I can feel them if I touch his belly, and they get trapped and he can't "Toot" (as he calls it). He will be laying down in tears, stretching and straining trying to "Toot", because his belly is hurting so bad, and he can't do anything to get it out, usually it EVENTUALLY works it's way out but by that point I am a nervous wreck just about because I am trying to comfort him and he is in so much pain. This occurs daily and I am about at wits end. Sometimes he will roll over on his belly and squirm and strain and is able to let out a couple of little "Toots" but not enough to do any good. It is getting to the point that he is afraid to go anywhere in public or hangout with friends...... for fear of either having to "toot" alot around people or getting a belly ache. Are there any other meds that I can try to give him or any other things that might help work the bubbles out so he can "toot" them out? I am willing to try anything, anything that you know please share! He of course still "Toots" some normally but it is like there is alot more bubbles in there that needs to come out. Please Help!!! Thanks

    P.S. A Good friend of mine who's daughter is his best friend from school, (her daughter is also Aspies) says that she often though not as often experiences this same thing and also doesn't know what to do. Any info/suggestions would be MUCH appreciated!!

    Im sorry for your son, I can understand how this could be an embarrassing problem for your son. Have you thought about taking him to a gastroninterologist? He may have IBS, maybe there is something they cou l d give him to help with it. Best wishes.
