Concerning your first question, let me just say I would like to plead the 5th Ammendment on that one. (LOL) Joking aside, it seems we all have a lot in common. But I wonder why nobody wants to try the Lamictal drug; the hand-tremors thing only happens while you're on the pill. It is not permanent. I'm watching a movie right now (Kingdom Come) where one of the characters demanded a NERVAL medicine for her migraine. And this reminds me of the girl whose fecal odor disappered while she was on Lamictal; she also had migraine - I think. I think this problem is also a (impaired) nerval thing.
Today, after washing my anal region and the rest of my body I put on lotion. And as I was rubbing the lotion on my skin I could smell feces on my chest. So I'm thinking could it be possible that my hands are transferring that fecal smell all over my body. I wish there was a soap specifically for removing fecal odor but gentle on the skin .
I used to have a boyfriend who liked his anal region being touched. At first, I thought that was odd. While playing with it, one of my left fingers mistakenly slipped into it. And I must confess that that finger smelled like feces all day.
Feces odor is truly something that is really hard to get rid off. Sometimes, I think our problem stem from the fact that we now have to use so much tissue paper to wipe ourselves clean. That change should be considered significant in trying to analyze our condition. Again, here's my hypothesis but in equation-format:
(STAGE 1) Low Serotonin or/and Too Much Mucus in the stomach ---> (STAGE 2) Impaired Digestive Nerval Functions ---> (STAGE 3) Incomplete Evacuations/Sticky Feces ----> (STAGE 4) Fecal Body Odor
I think most of us, including myself, are still focussing on Stage 4 while the lady on Lamictal lingered on Stage 3 or 2.
