 i have bad pains in my lower stomach, most of the time it hurts when there is gas, urine, and etc. i have had this pain for a long time?

Get help for pain: There are lots of reasons for abdominal discomfort, and not all of them are due to the GI tract. Even "functional" syndromes may be present without underlying "disease." if pain with meals consider peptic (acid), biliary, or pancreatic disease. If bleeding or tenderness is present, this suggests inflammation, ischemia, or infection. Exquisite tenderness is quite concerning. See your doctor pls. ...Read more

I have been a verbal notice about body oder , . I shower and use deodorant , I am not aware of it , i could smell myself right i also have bad gas that i can't seem to control until appropriate to let it out , frustrated what should I do ?

You : You may not be aware of your own body odor, either because you have become habituated to it, or you sense of smell may not be accute. There can be a number of reasons for foul body odors. Our body releases odor through our breath, feces, urine and sweat. Most of the time when we think of body odor, we think of sweat in the area of the groin or underarms. This type of odor is usually caused by the interaction of sweat and bacteria.
If you have poorly controlled gas release, i must ask you what kind of diet you have? Are you drinking at least eight 8 ounces glasses of water per day? Are you getting enough vegetables and fruits, especially ones that are robust with fiber? Are you eating a ton of red meat? The bacteria associated with meat can create smelly bowel movements. Do you suffer from constipation? An unhealthy diet can be the culprit for body odor.
Next issue, medical conditions: irritable bowel syndrome (abdominal pain with constipation alternating with diarrhea), food allergies, leaky gut syndrome or in severe situations; bowel obstructions can be reasons for malodor.
I recommend that you see your doctor so that he or she can rule out any medical problems. You can talk with your doctor about the possibility of doing a gentle juice cleanse. If you don’t have a specific medical problem: hydrate well and improve your diet. I wish you well as you are making improvements in this area of your life. ...Read more

What causes farts to smell really bad and having to pass gas often?

Bacterial metabolism: Certain foods are metabolized in different ways by the normal bacteria that live in your colon. This metabolism permits further processing of the food to give you additional nutrients. The bacteria release different organic acids based on the food and the species of bacteria. These acids are released as a gas and have distinctive odors. ...Read more

How do I get rid the bad smell of my gas?

How do I get rid the bad smell of my gas?

Hard to fix: The odor from intestinal gas comes brom the breakdown of nutrients that you do not absorb, but feed various germs in your gut. They feed on the excess and create methane gas and other odors that depend on the germ and item consumed. Beano and Lactaid are two OTC products in the US that help some. Keep a food diary to see which ones make u gassy/then avoid them is a simple plan. ...Read more

What causes your gas to suddenly smell? I have been eating better more fruits, vegetables, etc trying to watch my weight but have noticed a ten fold increase in the amount of gas and the smell associated with it seems to be very bad. Short of over the co

The : The gas you pass is manufactured by the bacteria that live in your colon when they consume food substances that are not completely absorbed in the small bowel. The gas is produced primarily from incompletely absorbed carbohydrates. The undigestible fiber found in the fruits and vegetables are a wonderful feast for the bacteria resulting in an increased production of gas. Interestingly, the type of gasses we pas are partly due to the very specific mixture of bacteria that populate each person's colon. This is different from person to person so that the same foods don't necessarily cause the same odor in different people. An increase in gas after a change in diet is not necessarily a sign of illness. You can test this by seeing if the gas subsides by going back to your prior diet. It is possible that the gas represents a more specific problem absorbing certain types of foods (one example is lactose intolerance); you should talk to your physician to make sure. ...Read more
