Welcome to the site and thanks for your question. My name is***** and I'll help you with this.
Corn is one of the foods that give many people problems with gas. The outer part of each kernel is what causes the problem. However, if this happens with everything you eat, there is something else going on.
Sometimes the "something going on" is no more than eating too fast so that you swallow a lot of air with the food. In addition you want to avoid anything that causes gas such as chewing gum, peppermint, anything carbonated, chocolate. A lot of diet foods contain sugar alcohols that can give people problems as well.
However, since you are so uncomfortable and this happens all the time, I would suggest a trip to your medical provider. Both gastric reflux (GERD) and ulcers can cause gas. Both are readily treatable. Other things are Crohn's disease and other chronic bowel conditions. Sometimes these will produce diarrhea and/or constipation, but not always. Gas is common in both. Problems with the gallbladder can also result in poor digestion of food resulting in gas.
I wish it were possible to tell you exactly what was wrong, but it's going to require some testing to tell.
