Hey guys. Past few days my gut has been crampy, with EXTREME flatulence that smells horrid. No real diarrhea or anything.
 
Has anyone tried taking activated charcoal? I took it a few times and it seemed to work a bit. But I wanted to ask for some opinions.

I tried it and it bound me up really bad. I wonder if you might have a bacterial overgrowth. I had that and would get really bloated, gassy and some stomach discomfort especially after I ate. There is a breath test you can do to see if you have it, but my GI just went off my symptoms. Gave me a 10 day course of Cipro and it knocked it right out of me. Good luck!
