    This might be difficult to achieve in an instant and requires a broader look at why you are experiencing wind pain.  It could be due to adhesions/scarring, poor absorption/undigested foods and/or a multitude of other causes and then trying the usual solutions for combating wind and bloating to help minimise the discomfort.  For a more immediate home remedy, switch from solid foods to liquid for 24 hours and try to self-massage the abdomen in a circular, clockwise motion in an effort to release any trapped wind. If it's an ongoing problem discuss it with your gastroenterologist and seek the advice of a dietitian experienced in GI disorders for guidance on dietary changes that may help and on foods to be avoided that could be making the problem worse.
