Hi guys. I have been livin with IBS-C for almost 2 years now. Before that, I NEVER had any symptoms of constipation, diarrhea, or bloating. I only had acid reflux.

So, 2 years ago I began on a high protein diet (I was training hard) and that's when the endless farting and constipation began. But it got WORSE a few months after that, when I was dealing with a LOT of stress. I just felt like my gut started to get really tight so I'd stop feeling so much pain and anger. But now, almost 2 years later, I can't get it to function normally again.

I fart all the time, and it's so embarrassing to the point I stopped dating. I'm scared of intercourse, I'm scared of sleeping next to someone because of how much I fart. It's THAT BAD. I've tried low fodmap diet for months now, I'm on a specific probiotic, I drink water, I exercise. I just don't poop like I used to, which was 3 times a day, and now it's 1 time a day, in the morning, and it's just a little bit, I don't feel I empty my bowel completely.

So now I've been on treatment with my Gastro and I'm on Mebeverine 200mg a day (which looses the muscles around the gut, making the farts less noisy because, you know, the tighter the muscles around the gut and anus, the louder the air when it comes out, sorry for the graphic description), miralax, and either dulcolax/ciruelax (senna)/or bekunis (a combination of both). I still poop little and fart a lot.

I feel so miserable and ashamed I just feel like dying if I have to live like this for another year. I crave support but I'm ashamed of talking about this. And the lack of physical contact relly gets me down. I don't know what else to do.

This is the first day I'm starting to take Paroxetine 12.5mg a night because I read it could help. I just want to poop normally again, and for the excessive farting to stop. I feel like the least attractive woman on the planet.

Any help will be greatly appreciated. Many thanks and blessing to you all, no one should have to live like this. Sorry for my bad mood I hope I'm not triggering anyone :(

I can kind of understand. I stopped dating since my issues began but that’s mainly because I’m in constant pain and I’m a crying mess most days. You actually kind of just helped me I may mention one of the medications you talked about to my dr because they are starting to suspect it’s a muscle problem. I stopped farting myself as much when I paid really close attention to gas producing foods and cut them out. Artificial sweetness always do it to me and too much fiber. I mean if the farting is your only concern a real gentleman will understand and maybe just do some zoom dates for now just trying to lighten the mood

linda2021- I am so sorry.  I can relate.  I, too, tried the low FODMAP diet.  It did help and continues to help a little bit, but it's not an all out solution.  I have a couple of suggestions that could help you.  Have you ever tried eating 1/2 cup of raw pumpkin seeds 1-1/2 hours before bed?  Drinking a cup of ginger tea afterwards is good too.  You can't eat anything after that though and the trick is doing it on an empty stomach so maybe eat an early dinner.   Dried figs help too, but they can make my stools skinnier than I'd like.

Hi Luvelephants6,

Do you have any fear that the seeds might cause a blockage if they get stuck behind the constipation for a long time or do you find that it seems to push everything else along?

No advice but you and I are in a similar boat except that I’m married and mine started more recently ...I feel like a disgusting person and I’m so depressed due to it. I want to just stay at home so I don’t have to be around others with my constant flatulence. It makes me hate myself. I’m so sorry you are dealing with this.

I fart something terrible when I wake up in the morning. Every single morning no matter what I eat or don 't eat. I am very VERY lucky in that my gas explosions smell like nothing -just air, Goodness knows what they are or what causes them. Phhhhtttt!!! every morning. Like someone stuck a bllmp with a pin!

Where the heck does all that air come from ? I eat slowly, don't gulp my food, don't swallow air as far as I know.

I have gone beyond dating.

The best farting companion has to  be a dog. Dogs are very good at farting in bed and think it's rather a lot of fun.

 

For smelly gas, I wonder if activated charcoal might help? I don't know. Just a thought.
