Thanks David.
Yes it's the same as I have described before
Windy paynes moving around
Down low then up a bit sometimes around ribs
Gurgly belly
Lots of wind flatulence
Slight urgency
My stools are normal but a little more frequent.
As you know I have had c b c stool test at lab and ct scan a year ago of abdomen and pelvis I really don't want to run down for more tests.

you don't need more tests.

your symptoms are from IBS

probably from something you ate.

you can try to avoid milk and diary and also gluten and wheat protein and pasta and breads and see if that helps your symptoms.

Ok thanks.
Can anxiety cause the wind ? If so how ?

anxiety can cause nervous bowels and cause your bowels to move faster than normal and this can cause gas and cramps.
