Customer Question
I have recently started...

I have recently started having weird symptoms. TMI but i'm so gassy I'm passing gas every 20 minutes. My gas consistently smells like rotten eggs. The smell does not change EVER. I also noticed my feces smells like decay literally like a dead animal it has been this way for a few months and does not vary at all. I've had different smells my whole life never anything like this. My stools are normal no issues no other symptoms there just these scents that are now seeming permanent.

Doctor's Assistant: Have you seen a doctor about this yet? What medications are you taking?

I have not seen a dr about it and not taking any medications

Doctor's Assistant: What medications do you take daily? Are you allergic to any medications?

Nothing and no

Doctor's Assistant: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?

I have been diagnosed with pcos other than that nothing no asthma diabetes perfectly healthy

I am actually thinking of eliminating dairy when I started to look up symptoms I just couldn't find much information

Is it really probable that at 27 i'm suddenly lactose intolerant?
Customer reply replied 2 months ago
No special diets or dietary changes etc just sudden on set
Doctor: Dr. Phil, MD, Medical Doctor replied 2 months ago

That is the first step for sure

I usually have people do this.

It is actually highly likely that you are suddenly lactose intolerant.

It is amazingly common

If that doesn't work then I start the FODMAP diet

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
