I am 46 (1.85m x 75kg), male and well physically fit.
Since I remember (being a child) my stool wasn't thicker than a finger. Few years ago I've seen a specialist and he said my rectum is a bit narrow than normal but not to worry about.... Most of the time is loose or soft blobs and no other symptoms with changed style often. Sometimes floats. Very rare diarrhea but often having a bowel movement every 1- 2 -3 days... it depends. Also quite often if I feel a bowel movement is starting ... has to be "now" .. it can't be delayed ...
Everything started more than a year ago with the main symptom "trapped wind" but no pain or other symptom. I have had blood tests one year ago and everything was ok.
First thing done I have changed my diet where I stopped eating fried, fatty or non healthy food. Being honest I rarely used to eat fatty food in the past. For a while it was ok but than becomes annoying. After every meal I feel bloated and always trapped wind. I spend sometimes hours to get rid of gas. Some days are ok but most of them not. During the night it's ok, no issues...weird My sleep and my lifestyle are bad because of to much stress. No other symptoms to complain. I have tried gluten free or lactose free diet where is a bit better but slim difference. In the last 6 months I use to eat only low calories, low fat or low saturate fat food, lots of green salads, fruits (pineapple, apples, blueberry...). I am eating only chicken or turkey and few sandwiches per week with diary free spreadable and a bit of smoked salmon and always wholegrain bread(2-3 slices / day)
I am really affected about this. I feel tired.... I miss having a lunch with my colleagues...like a grilled burger or a stake, chips, crisps...etc
I plan to see my GP again regarding this issue.
Any advice in meantime?
Your help is highly appreciated guys
