Re: bad odor and bad breath

do u think the odor can be coming from your rectum?

if so join the club, looks like something is definately going around

As for the bad breath, those pocket packs help. Do you have any other symptons like a coated tongue etc?

Re: bad odor and bad breath

Yes I do think it comes from the rectum,it feels wet like sweat or something even when I'm just standing there not doing anything .As for my bad breath I think it's coming from my insides but maybe I'm wrong.Do you think it could be from too much sugar?I drink alot of pop.I don't know what else it could be, I don't eat takeout anymore.

Re: bad odor and bad breath

Shader: yup same here, I would suggest hitting your doctor and asking for a referral to see a GI specialist and to get them to take a look inside. Even when i eat nothing at all the same **** happens, it seems the only thing that stops it is being really relaxed.

I have to wait till november though stupid waiting times.

Re: bad odor and bad breath

I have the same thing except my breath isn't bad. I have a lot of sweating/dampness near my rectum and anytime I begin to exercise my shorts get soaked even when the rest of my body doesn't sweat.

I don't think you should have quit your job though. You should have kept working hard and let them fire you if the smell got that bad, you might have a lawsuit there. I do understand your anxiety though, I'm currently looking for a job and I'm just going to work untill I'm fired, no matter how bad the coworkers say I stink.

It seems like a few people here have a very similar affliction, if we put our heads together we can probably get this thing solved.

Re: bad odor and bad breath

I did see my GI and I did the scope and a baraminem < I think that's how you spell it,she agreed I was really gasy but could not figure out why,when I did the scope they found nothing wrong,the baraminem they said they found some acid coming up from my stomach but nothing major,I only told them about the gas and the sweat feeling I get,I did not tell them about the bad smell because I was to embaressed but I did tell my doctor before I went to see the GI and he looked at me like I was crazy.GO FIGURE!

Re: bad odor and bad breath

Re: bad odor and bad breath

I have the same problem. I have tried everything to get rid of the problem; I tried charco caps and gasx they both do not work for me. My doctor told me to put more fiber in my diet but that seems to make the problem worse. Does any one have a solution?

Re: bad odor and bad breath

Sometimes it feels like a liquid is being released? Check.

Grumbling noises from bladder and rectum? Check.

Strange/foul odour coming from rectal area? Check.

Constant burning sensation, pressure? Check.

Finding a colon rectal surgeon who knows what the heck is wrong with me? Priceless.

Re: bad odor and bad breath

Hobbs: 4 yups as well, when did it start for you if you could trace it?

One doctor i talked to said it could be discharge from a anal abscess (sp) which would explain the wet dampness and burning sensation. But i cant smell the stuff at all myself. Keep us posted

The person who mentioned the acid from the stomache did they go into further detail?

Re: bad odor and bad breath

Maybe it's an infection, or something we eat that were alergic too? I drink alot of pop so maybe it could be that,someone told me it might be to much sugar in my diet.Does anyone else drink alot of pop or consume alot of sugar?If we all work together we might be able to find out what's wrong with us.If you guys get any info post it in here or start another thread to keep us all informed.We have to find out what we're up against or we will have to live the rest of our lives like this.

Re: bad odor and bad breath

Puterafication bacteria can cause your BMs to smell very bad. Bad/ unfriedly intestinal bacteria thrive on sugar so you have to decrease your intake of sugary foods and intake friendly bacteria that promote good digestion. Sodas are all sweetened with corn syrup since 1970 (fructose)

Yogurt, Kefir and a probiotic supplement several times daily help get your friendly intestinal bacteria/ flora re-balanced.

Also too much salty food will mess up your digestion. Surprising as it may seem -- a normal BM is not suppose to smell bad. Well not extremely offensive. You may need a digestive enzyme with each meal.

About the body and mouth/breath-- all unfriendly bacteria as well as harmful bacteria grows in an alkaline environment so you have to make your body slightly acidic to reduce body odor caused by unfriendly stinking body odor bacteria from generating. ALL SOAP products produce akaline film on the skin that is almost impossible to wash off with just water. And, when you think you are clean the unfriendly bacterua grows when you get a little hot/warm and sweat!!

You can make your entire body acidic where no odor smelling bacteria grows by using water in a tub and add a cup of vinegar ( the white vinegar is not as strong smelling) and just soak and then pat yourself dry. The vinegar smell will go away in about 20 minutes or less and you won't smell like a pickle-- I promise!!

The Acid will retard offensive bacteria growth. I have used this as a deodorant for 25 years and it works. A book was written in 1958 about the use of apple cider vinegar as well as the use of honey and kelp-- it was named Vermont Folk Medicine but it name has been changed to just "Folk Medicine" by Dr.Jarvis,MD.

Also, it is good to use a mouth wash with a teaspoon of vinegar to a glass of water. Gargle twice then swallow it. It is also a good mouth wash to kill ALL unfriendly mouth bacteria for sore throats as well as bad odor.

Take a Zinc vitamin--- there is an old saying -- "Take zinc and don't stink". I don't know if this is true but you need it anyway!!!

I also am a great believer in taking a water soluble fiber supplement like Metamucil to make you regular w/o straining. Health begins in the intestines.

God Bless---Harry

Re: bad odor and bad breath

I think Its malabsorption. Yesterday I did some research on malabsorption. I then bought an all in one calcium magnesium & zinc pills from Rite Aid. A day later I awoke and no more gas and no more stomach noises in the morning. Some foods like chicken eggs oatmeal and ice cream will still give me a lot of gas, But the smell is not as bad as before.
