Gas/trapped gas for 5 months
In august I started having bad gas every afternoon, every day no matter what I ate. By October the gas last all afternoon and night (I feel better lying down but as soon as I stand up it would come out in the morning). Now the gas forms and won't come out until morning making my evenings very uncomfortable. I went gluten free and was put on cipro for sibo at the same time. I got much better, but never perfect.
I've been off cipro now for almost 4 weeks. I felt pretty good when on it but about 3 days after I finished it my symptoms really started to return - but that's when I also started eating gluten again. ISo I've been 100% gluten free for 3 weeks and at first I was having some good days, but most days every evening after dinner I would start getting the gas build up . If I was fortunate it would come out, otherwise it would stay trapped and hurt until morning when it came out. Now it seems my gas is all over the place. 2 days ago I had my symptoms from 3 months ago where all evening tons of gas starting coming out but the only thing that changed from my diet is that I ate wheat free waffles with maple syrup and some butter.
This might be too much info but I find it strange, ever since I went on the cipro once a week I have a day where I have three or so obscenely large BMs in one day. They almost always smell like dog ###### which is strange in itself. I used to volunteer at a dog shelter in the summer before this started so I wondered if its remotely possible that could be related. I'm not constipated though, my stool comes out easy enough each day....
