A couple of years ago I began to worry about my excessive gas when a close friend/coworker told me to count how many I produce in a day. When the number was over one hundred in just under eight hours I began to get a little nervous. I have always wanted to talk to a doctor about my "problem" but how exactly do you bring that up? "Hey doc, I fart a lot why is that?" I can't see myself asking that question. Yesterday I was checking facebook and found this interesting article from Joslin. The article does not say much about the gas part of things but does give a little information on why I may have this problem. I also believe that at my next doctors appointment the topic will come up.
