Gassy all the time

I have abdominal gas practically all the time. The problem started about 4 years ago, after I believe taking too much aspirin for a hemorrhoid. This was prescribed to me by my former doctor.

I feel bloated after eating and to make matters worse, I've been a vegetarian for 15 years. So for the past 3 years, I've been taking beano and a digestive aid every day. I take a probiotic also, but infrequently. This helps a little, but I still get gas. If my belt is too tight or if I'm not sitting upright, I get gas. At restaurants, I can't eat too much or I get gas. I have reflux only if the gas is trapped and I've eaten too much.

I'm at a loss at what to eat or how to manage this. I don't believe there is anything else wrong causing this. My mom and brother had similar issues, but their stomach gas and reflux went away.

Any ideas?
