I am so sorry you have to deal with what you are going through. And, unfortunately, I can totally relate.
I was diagnosed with IBS quite some time ago, and no prescription medication or natural supplement or elimination diet has cured me, or even helped more than a little bit.
I'm fortunate I am a woman and can carry around a pocketbook, I don't know WHAT I'd do if I were a guy. I carry body spray with me EVERYWHERE. Not for my body, for the air around me. I smell up every room I ever go into! It's gross. Sometimes my underclothes smell like a dirty diaper.
I've had to postpone events because I'm just too smelly to be around people, which is a cryin' shame, and makes me feel really dirty and disgusting. Which I am not at all, like you said in your letter, it's this terrible problem.
Probiotics have helped with the excruciating pain. Eliminating wheat and dairy have helped somewhat with the bloating. But nothing has helped with this gas. I've had doctors and naturopaths tell me to eat less protein, eat less fruit, eat less fiber, eat more fiber, don't eat eggs. They donít' know.
Not that I'm happy in any way about your ailment. But I am sort of relieved to read about someone else with the same problem. I mean, I look normal, I act normal, and I'm sure you do too. We just have this secret, which sometimes isn't so secretive, like when someone sneaks into a room before I get to spray completely. I always wonder what they think. If it happens once, I guess the person could just think I had Mexican food for lunch or something. But if that same person smells an odor coming from my direction EVERY DAY... Hence the spray bottle. Itís funny, people always tell me my classroom (I'm a teacher) always smells so nice. Because I spray it with vanilla body spray a million times a day!
I wish I had the name of a magic pill for you, to make your problem disappear. If you ever find one yourself, please let us smelly people know about it!
