My fecal odor continued....
so here I am again. I think I have been suffering from fecal odor coming from my anus for about 4 years. I have tried almost everything that I have seen others have success with. I about at the end of my rope. This past week was very tough for me. After trying a couple more things I am starting to feel like nothing is going to help me and I don't know what to do.
My odor seems to change. Sometimes it is a strong fecal smell, sometimes a musty smell and then other times I can't describe what I am smelling. Others smell it too but I have done a pretty good job of keeping the finger from being pointed at me. I have pretty much no social life anymore because I am controlled by this odor. I have seen long time friends fade away because I was not able to spend time with them. I always make up excuses for staying at home. I am married but my wife has no idea what I am going through. I feel like I am missing out on some great years of our life together because I am so preoccuppied with my odor and trying to control it the best that I can. I truly feel like I am cheating my wife though as I am not able to give her all of me because of this.
I can assure you that the odor is real. I have heard many people ask "what's that smell?" and even my wife has noticed an odor but as I said, I have been able to keep it a secret that it is me that's causing the odor. I keep candles burning, spray deodorizer all the time and am constantly spraying deodorant on myself to try to mask the smell. I work out 3-4 times a week and lately especially it has only made the odor worse after a workout. The latest this that I tried is digestive enzymes, zinc and hydrocloride acid. I do feel that my digestive tract is not working properly sometimes. I became lactose intolerant about 10 yrs ago. Sometimes though I think it's my body chemistry that is thrown off. Sometimes the smell gets worse when I sit in front of the computer for long perdiods of time which I can't figure that out for the life of me. It just totally makes no sense to me.
I don't know what to do. Like I said, I have tried everything from enemas, parasite
cleanse, liver cleanse, probiotics, colon cleanse, apple cider vinegar, kefir, fiber just seems to make it worse. This is truly robbing me of my life and robbing my wife of time with me because I know I am not myself due to this problem. My only hope is that someone will find the cure.
