I'm a gassy lady sometimes, and I know it's not good for my body to hold it in, but does anyone know what it does to my insides?

About the same thing the air outside your body does to your skin, nothing.

I'd like to add something to this argument, when I first started getting IBS symptoms I was able to hold the gas in to, but over a period of about 6months I gradually lost the ability to and now it just seeps out and I don't even know until I get a whiff of the odour. So I'd like to say that it doesn't do anything to your insides, but I have no proof of that, so let it free while you still have the choice.

I don't know about you, but when I hold it in it HURTS!
