Ok...this is just wacked......For about the last year, about ever couple of months I will notice that I get a VERY PUNGENT (kinda like a cross between mildew, fungus and skunk cabbage) smell coming from both my palms. I try everything to get the smell to go away, but nothing works. Not bleach, lemon juice, vinigar.....nothing. Anyways, thats not the weird part.....since my UC has really been active (the last 2.5 months) I usually have constipation and then every 4 - 7 days I have a major bowel eveactuation at 4am. The evacuation usually starts off being typical constipation nuggets, then turn to more formed pencil type poops, which then turn into "D". Well, the last part of the evacuation, the "D", is the nastiest smelling thing which smells EXACTLY like the stink that comes from my palms. Now, Im guessing that the last part of the evacuation is the stool that has been stuck high up in the lower intestine or the end of the small intestine, but how would that smell be absorbed from my intestinal track to end up being extruded through my palms, not my pits or anywhere else, just my palms.
I should probably mention this to my doc. He will probably think Im nuts.
Anyone have any thoughts?
Has anyone else ever noticed that or had anything similar?
