I have always had bloating and a bit of wind,  but never smelly wind.  But over the past month I have had the most awful loud and stinky wind. As I say it is enough to knock out a rhino. My trumps are explosive like a burst on the trumpet and the smell, well, I soon wont have any friends left.
If I had always been like this then I wouldnt think anything of it. Im on Infliximab and Ranitidine. The only change Ive made lately is that Im coming down off my anti depressants. 
 Ive had a bit of bleeding (bright red) which the doc thinks is hemmies. Ive also had a fair bit of discomfort, mild bowel pain. And my poop is rather sticky and sloppy, but Ive had this before, I just wasnt expecting it on Infliximab. I havent changed my diet, eat a pretty normal diet at the moment, except when I have a bad day, when I have to restrict it.
Anyone have any thoughts before I gas all my friends

All I know is when I complained to my GI about excessive gas and bloating (had frequent loose stools as well) he told me to use fibre supplements daily and indefintely, well once my system adjusted (as it can increase gas and bloating which is normal) all my bloating went away and I have very little gas, formed stools and less frequency. I've been taking fibre supplements daily for the last 5ish yrs now. Only stricturing/obstructing CDers need to tread with caution when it comes to too much fibre, but fibre supplements are also a great alternative for them.

bee propolis caps 500mg one cap twice/day
omegas 369 caps one cap twice/day
probiotics 10 billion cfu once/day
vitamins C-calcium ascorbate (easy on the gut) and vitamin A each once/day
Prodiem fibre supplement one cap before bed
I've also altered my diet (no junky stuff at all, processed, fast-foods, refined sugars, ect) and exercise regularly.
I went from 30+ bloody BM's/day with lots of lower back pain to an average of 5/day no bleeding no back pain and completely formed stools, still have severe urgency issues.
