Hello,Warning- This might be a little graphic.Similar to other people in this forum, I have had bowel problems for a long time. I have had bowel problems since the age of 4 and now I am 23 years old.Just recently in the last year my stomach problems have gotten worse.It feels as if I get really bloated and then I got to the bathroom and have loose stool.Sometimes just air will come out but flat-like stool will also come out. It will do this for around ten to fifteen minutes about three to four times a day.The real problem is the excessive loud farting that also occurs. I mean like embarrassingly loud- If I was in the upper floor of house with two doors shut to trap in the sound you could hear the farting in the main floor and in the basement. You could probably even hear the noise of the farting outside through closed windows.It is very, very, loud.Recently I just lived in an apartment and I never went to the bathroom in the apartment..I was too afraid of all the sounds that would happen. This is starting to become a really big problem...what is causing this and how can I stop it?
