Thank you for your query at DoctorSpring.com
I sincerely apologise for the delay in the reply.
I have reviewed your history and it is possible you have some kind of malabsorption due to enzyme deficiency, which leads to production of so much gas. You could also have bacterial overgrowth.
Can you please mention your dietary history in detail?
Also, have you ever gotten your stool tested?
Once you reply, I will get back to you.

Thank you for responding. I thought I may be afflicted with fructose malabsorption after reading up on it before I even submitted on here. So in the last few days I've cut out any offending sugars and I've been much better. I still had some gas after eating dinner, but nowhere near the level I was experiencing before. I've been eating mostly proteins and vegetables with no fructose like carrots. Do you have any dietary recommendations? How would I go about dealing with the bacterial overgrowth, if that may also be an issue with me? I have not had my stool tested. I am seeing a doctor at the end of next week. Thank you again.
Yes, you should get a stool test done, as it can reveal the malabsorption of lactose/ fructose or any other sugars you are intolerant too.
Regarding the diet, avoid dairy products, chocolates, peanuts, cabbage, broccoli, and sugar as you have avoiding. Lean meat, grilled veggies, and proteins will do.
Also, for the bacterial overgrowth, when you meet your doctor, he can prescribe you a course of Rifaximin to be taken twice daily for 2 weeks. This will reduce the bacterial overgrowth.
Hope this was helpful,
