I mistakenly thought I couldnt pass gas often enough but I just was sort of creating the pain, it was all mental. When I just forgot about it and stopped trying to force things the pain went away and I passed gas whenever I was supposed to. It was pretty strange and I'm not sure if this is the same situation but I always try to pass along the info.
