A woman has been ‘put in a wheelchair’ after ‘holding in farts’.
Viih had been visiting Portugal for the Rock in Rio Lisboa 2022 music festival with her reality-star boyfriend Eliezer when she revealed that she'd been suffering from agonising abdominal pain.
However, the 21-year-old online star, widely known as Viih Tube, later told followers her ‘unbearable pain’ was caused by trapped wind.
Brazilian Viih said on social media: “Like mother, like daughter. And I, at the airport, started to feel unbearable pain and I was even put in a wheelchair and it turned out to be gas.”
“I understand you, mummy Pocah,” she quipped of a Brazilian singer who made headlines due to suffering from a similar incident earlier this year.
The singer then replied: “Get well, my daughter. Farting is serious!”
In March, the singer revealed that she was hospitalised due to an accumulation of trapped wind as she was not on ‘farting terms’ with her new partner.
Pocah, born Viviane de Queiroz Pereira, shared photos of herself in hospital to her followers and wrote: "I woke up at 5.30am with severe stomach pains and ended up in the hospital.
"But that's it, guys. I'm now fine. Just an accumulation of trapped farts,” she reassured her fans.
"Girls, don't be ashamed to fart in front of your guy, because what's really embarrassing is not letting your guy sleep because you're in discomfort, going to the hospital with your guy, and the diagnosis being 'trapped farts',” she advised her followers. “From now on, I'm letting them rip, guys."
Pocah added: "I'm medicated and I'm fine."
According to the NHS, the most common cause of bloating is a build-up of gas in your gut.
“This can be caused by some food and drinks, such as some vegetables and fizzy drinks, or by swallowing air when you eat,” the organisation explains.
Bloating can also be triggered by digestive issues like constipation, food intolerances, coeliac disease and irritable bowel syndrome (IBS), as well as premenstrual bloating or severe issues like ovarian cancer.
Bloating can be prevented with exercise, as per the NHS, which is known to improve digestion and abdominal discomfort.
Drinking lots of water and eating foods high in fibre can help constipation while massaging your stomach from right to left can release trapped wind.
However, if you suffer from a severe or sudden stomach ache, feel pain when you touch your stomach, are vomiting blood or matter that ‘looks like ground coffee’, pooing bloody or black stool, cannot wee, poo, fart or breathe or have chest pain, call 999 or go to A&E immediately.
