    Gas pains can be severe . Avoid food eating foods that cause gas build up. Soda water helps . Don't Suppress Passing Gas. If Possible, Move Your Bowels. Sip a Gas-Reducing Hot Tea. Chew Fennel Seeds.  Apply Heat to Your Belly. . Move Your Body walking helps . Keep a diary of foods that cause gas.
