Re: My Story

I'm glad I read this thread. The fact that you decided to get personal on this forum makes me feel better to know that there are others out there with almost the same exact problems that I have and that maybe we can find the answers. My story is very similar to yours. I have been experience my odor problems for just over a year. However, even before my odor became continuous I would sometimes smell my fecal odors in certain situations. For instance: sometimes if I was driving long distances, I would start to smell a fecal/rotten food type smell from my rectum. Others would comment how it smelled like food in my car. Other times if I spent too much time on my computer or sitting down playing my guitar I would start smelling myself as well, and would have to take a bath to make it a little better. Sometimes I didn't like to go back to my studio and practice because it made me smell and I had no idea why. All of a sudden about a year ago I started smelling everyday and I have tried several things to include:
Vitamin K
Charcoal Tabs (which worked for a short time)
Oil of oregano
Salt water flush
Primal Defense
Digestive enzymes
I thought the smell was coming from constipation and the psyllium made my bowel movements very bulky, but also seemed to make the smell worse sometimes. Some times I do feel as though I have had an imcomplete bowel movement and also I notice that if I go to the bathroom every single time I feel the smallest urge, then the smell is sometimes not as bad. When I was a kid I hated to go the bathroom and would often hold it in. I feel I may have backed up my system or injured something by holding it in so often. But I do have regular bowel movements, in fact every morning it's like clock work when I get up. Once I drink or eat something I have to go right then. Sometimes my bowel movement is smaller or ribbon shaped and other times it is bulky. I thought once I was suffering from IBS but who knows. Also I mentioned it to my doctor once and he did a visual inspection of my rectum for tears or anything like that and found nothing. In fact like so many others have said, he made it seem like it was all in my head. I know for a fact though it is not. I can smell it in my house and have to do things to hide it such as sprays and candles. I also for the past year have used folded up tissue between my butt cheeks to help stop the smell and it works to some degree. But when I remove the tissue it is almost always has a light brown stain as if I am leaking a bit, but not much at all, just a spot. I have went several days without the odor but it always comes back and sometimes for a couple of days it is so bad I am afraid to be around people.
Sorry this is so long but that's my story. Maybe some of you can relate.
