Hello, I have very irregular bowel movements from the squirts

Resolved Question:

Hello, I have very irregular bowel movements from the squirts to constipation which causes roids, I eat alot of meat and veg and fruit and often feel so full and bloated but I still feel starving. Like a sick feeling from being so hungry. I have recently experienced burping the most fowl smell which actually smelt like a mangrove swamp, all wound their windows down as if some one had fluffed. I'm 62kg and 173cm tall, a smoker and like a knock off drink. Thankyou Dlee

Expert:  Dr. Saha replied 5 years ago.
Thank you for the information,

By your history it seems that you may have the condition which in medical terminology is called Irritable Bowel Syndrome or IBS though you do not have the typical all the symptoms.

Symptoms of IBS-
  • cramping,
  • abdominal pain,
  • bloating,
  • constipation,
  • diarrhea etc.
The exact cause of IBS not known. It is usually diagnosed by exclusion of other disease.

In most cases no cause is detected. It may be precipitated by -
  • certain foods
  • stress
  • low immunity to fight infection
Some dietary measures can help.

Avoid foods that may make diarrhea worse-
  • milk products,
  • sugar rich foods,
  • fatty foods,
  • gas-producing foods like beans, cabbage, radish, broccoli etc.
  • caffeine,
  • tobacco
  • alcohol etc.
Other common causes of unusual bowel habit are-
  • infection
  • inflammatory bowel disease
  • malabsorption syndrome
  • growth
  • polyp etc.
IBS though causes discomfort, does not cause any organic damage to gut.

You should consult doctor to exclude other causes.

I hope this information will be helpful.

Please ask if you need any clarification.

Best wishes.
