Bloating, smelly wind and hot

Posted , 8 users are following.

Hi everyone, it must of been a month or two now I went to visit my doctors as after I have had food I feel pretty bloated and sometimes i am finding I have lots of wind which is hot and very smelly. 

When I visited the doctor, their thoughts was it was a combination of constipation and IBS. I’ve never been aware I have had IBS. I am a 21 year old male. I have just started to get back in to gym. The only thing I could think of is that I eat pretty fast. Any answers or guidance would be highly appreciated.

Many thanks 

Ben

    Hi Ben,

    Two things that will help your condition are grapefruit and alm milk. Try it. You could eat the grapefruit after a meal as your dessert. And alm milk will also help with gas. Good luck.

    Get a referral from u doctor to see a GI specialist.  They can run test to make sure it’s that. Could be little as stress   Stress can cause a lot to the body and act funny. But for IBS. You have to eat slow and 6 small meals a day can’t eat fast cuz it causes bloating and cramps.   LowFoodMap. Look that up it can give you ideas on what foods to eat and which to stay away from.  Note tho not all foods agree to you on the list it’s a start you have to find which hurt and which are safe and write them day.   But get a GI to help you my honest opinion. Best of luck

    Constipation and IBS go together because IBS can cause it. When I was diagnosed with IBS, I wasn’t diagnosed wirh a combination of constipation and IBS.  I was diagnosed simply as having IBS.  Do you have shifting abdominal pain?

    Hi Ben, I have personally never heard of hot wind, unless your stomach is processing food and making it hot, it's this that is odd.  You could have ibs or it could be something else.  Go back to your doctors ask for tests and ask to see a dietician.  You need to know why this is happening.  I think you are young to be diagnosed with ibs, but it is feasible this is what it is.  Are you eating lots of foods to make your wind hot?

      There’s number of things can make you feel like that. It’s best to see a GI and get test done. Hate to say other ideas to make you worry more and stress you out

    Ben,

    I'm not sure if this is going to help you but I wanted to share my situation, I'm a male in my 30's and have has IBS issues since about 19.  

    My recent problem is somewhat similar to yours.  I have had constipation issues for the last 6 months.  Typically I thought of constipation as not having a bowel movement but I recently discovered it's possible to go to the bathroom and still be full of you know what.  A few months back I felt as you described, unusually full, distended, and gassy.  I also started having severe pain in my lower right side.  To make a long story short I went to the hospital and was told I was constipated that the pain was impacted feces.  I followed up with a gastroenterologist he said the feces acts as a cork plugging up the system and the waste manifests the gas. Horrible I know! 

    Anyway it seems my body holds the feces which is what causes the pressure, bloating, and gas.  Unfortunately I have not been able to figure out why or how to fix it.  I've been to several doctors and all day there is nothing medically wrong and can only offer prescription laxatives as a solution.  I have also tried over the counter products too such as Metamucil, probiotics, colon cleanses, stool softeners, increased water intake, magnesium etc. 

    The problem with these is that when I take them it irritates my system- almost like I'm giving myself IBS from the supplements (I get cramps, more gas, indigestion etc.).

    Currently I am playing around with all different things to figure out make myself "regular" without experiencing other side effects.  

    My point is I wonder if you have the same issue- that you are unknowingly impacted and that is causing the gas bloating etc.

    I know I don't have the solution but maybe we can all help one another to figure it out.

      You could try lots of fruit instead of chemical laxatives so long as you have no trouble with fruit.  Oranges and prune juice really helped me.  Fruit will naturally soften your stools to make them easier to pass.  Fruit juice is also excellent.

      Hi Albert, 

      Thanks for your post, Much appreciated. 

      I’m really not sure what it could be. I’ve just been prescribed today some peppermint tablets to take 3 times a day daily, so I wonder if this will help the situation otherwise no idea. I have always had some issues with my bowels, years ago I use to hold it in for months and months, but now it’s sort of the opposite I suppose I go more than I did before, but experiencing bloating, and lots of gas. I wonder if it’s because I eat fast? I do go to the gym 2/3 times a week so find I crave for food like mad. Can you relate to this... ??

      The peppermint tabs should help, they have helped me in the past.  I have gotten many different responses as to what the issue could be, still not sure.  Hopefully we can find the answer soon.

    Hi Ben,

    Gluten has a tendency to bloat. Try gluten free for a week it could make all the difference.

    Occasionally, I have had hot or warm wind even before my IBS started.
