I've posted about the gurgling noises coming from within but because I'm so focussed on trying to figure out what is up with me....here I am again.
Anybody experience the below happening but ALWAYS worse at night?
I get up in the a.m. have one or two of my loose, foul smelling, BMs and seem to make it through the day alright. I eat a normal breakfast and lunch and my stomach doesn't seem to go too crazy. The odd sound here and there but nothing at all like happens in the evening.
But once I have dinner, it seems like within 2 hours or so, the noisy, embarassing gurgling, etc begins and within in an hour or two, I'm back to the toilet for another of the loose, gross BMs. I find myself walking away from groups of people once this starts, My dear wife always thinks something is wrong, but I'm just too embarassed to have these noises be heard by all. Even after that when I lay in bed, it (gurgling) goes crazy. My wife must think an alien is going to pop out of me one day and grab her! This has gotten worse in the last month or so. (not her fear of the alien...the gurgling..lol)
Pretty sure I'm flaring (moderate UP) and have been taking my Asacol, Cortifoam (every 2nd night), as well as other assorted supplements, probiotics, Olive Leaf Extract, Digestive Enzymes, Metamucil...well, you get the drift.
The loose smelly stools keep getting dismissed all the time by my GP and the last few visits I had with my GI...IBS is what they say. I could live with the loose stools, it's the gurgling and stench that are presently driving me crazy.
Don't get to see the GI until the 17th of Aug.
Anybody have any words of wisdom?
