Re: Uncontrollable(unconscious)anal gas leakage & flatulence
Did you get tested for SIBO, cdiff, parasites? If not, I suggest you get tested. Also, have you gotten checked for structural issues with your anus? Gas incontinence is just a weak form of fecal incontinence, so it seems that there is something wrong with your anal sphincter (or maybe you have bulky or prolapsed hemorrhoids, anal fissure, rectal prolapse) allowing for the smell to pass through. A combination of one of the issues I listed at the beginning (SIBO etc.) and a structural issue could be the reason why you have constant leaky gas. It might also be structural issues combined with food intolerances
. Have you tried removing foods people tend to be intolerant to (dairy, gluten, processed/junk food)? Then again, this is just a theory. I've had the same problem as you for the past 7 years and I'm going to go to the gastroenterologist soon to get more tests done- crossing my fingers that I'll finally have a diagnosis.
I LOVE your idea, only problem is choosing location as we're spread out all over. I live in NY state. Anybody else?
Also, support group would be awesome, just to meet up every now and then and hang out with people that won't judge you for this condition. Just unconditional acceptance- that'd be pretty sweet.
I'm up for being friends. Email me at firstname.lastname@example.org if you wanna talk (about anything, doesn't need to be FBO-related). :)
BEST OF LUCK finding a solution to this thing!
