Terrible GAS all the time

Any ideas for dealing with terrible, almost daily GAS?

I have NO pain, diarrhea, nor constipation--just stinky gas which is a serious problem at work, as I work in close quarters with co-workers and public.

I have an ever-growing list of foods to avoid, but even when I don't eat them, I have gas and bloating! It seems like EVERYTHING causes gas now!

Dried fruit seems to be the worst.

What causes all this gas--bacteria? If I ate (a tiny bit of) dried fruit two weeks ago, could that still be affecting me?

Gas-X helps some, but I have to take way more than the standard dose, and it still doesn't always work.

I am 50, fat, female. :)

Thanks for any advice!!

Nancy
