I think I have IBS but haven't gone to the doctors for it. I seem to be gassy alot and while I remember being able to "control" my gas it seems like I can't all the time anymore (sorry about the TMI!!)
I work in an office but am constantly moving around. I can't go hide in the bathroom all day, I work around people. I really hope no one has noticed!!
I don't remember being like this before...it started getting bad about 2 years ago. In the middle of me losing weight (I'm maintaining now) So it might be my eating habits?
I started taking beano, gas x prevention and now am trying charco caps. These things sometimes help. I was taking more than prescribed though...
I find that something I eat one day might be fine but next day not be good at all so it is hard to write a list of "never eats" and "eats".
Ironically, I find that when I eat "bad" foods I feel better. Like I could eat graham crackers all day long and not be gassy. They wouldn't be nutritious but my stomach wouldn't hurt and I'd not be gassy. Or if I order food from wherever the office is eating out at instead of bringing my own food to work, I also don't have as much gas.
So basically eating healthy makes me sick! lol
But it is embarrassing mostly...like I said I worry that my coworkers notice. I was carrying a little bottle of body spray and spraying that throughout the day hoping it would mask odors..
Has anyone experienced this and figured out how to live with it?
