User :   Hello, I am having serious problems with gas. Its not necessarely a "fart," but small amounts of "air." The problem is I'm a bartender. Ive never had a problem over the past few years, but it just seems rediculous now, I can't even stock without the music on', everyone can hear it. I didnt think anyone could cause it was so small and light but constant, at least I thought, and now it happens all the time.I have bad hearing so I didn't know until my friend said something one day. I never changed my diet one day it just happened. It's so embarressing I can barely work. I took Gas X and it didnt help at all. Please help :( so frustrating
