This is the first time I have posted on this forum. I have no particular advice, but I can certainly relate to your problem. I have recently signed up for some classes. I am IBS-D, and gas is definitely not a good thing for me. Lets just say I never know if I am just going to be firing blanks, so with every gurgle I run to the ladie's room. Have you ever noticed that the acoustics in bathrooms are better than anywhere else in the house ... or public buildings for that matter. The ladie's room at the college where I take classes is right across from the lecture theatre. The toilet seems to act as a megaphone. I am sure I am making quite a name for myself. I have tried elimination diets, total fasting, no carbonated drinks, using pro-biotics ... you name it. I have even been tested for bacterial overgrowth. So far I haven't found a solution. I try to maintain my sense of humour about it all, and merrily go on tooting my own horn. I am sure I hold the world title for the longest, loudest and most frequent gas emissions. I can literally walk from one end of the house to the other and back with a "clap of thunder" accompanying each step. The title passed to me (sorry about the pun) when my parents died. They both had the same problem. The only serious contender for my title is my grand daughter. I have hemmies and my ab muscles are shot. She is 2 years old and has neither of these problems. It makes me wonder if genetics plays a part. Is there a flatulence gene? My main point in answering your question is to let you know you are not alone.Take careKristy (alias thunder down under)
