For the past 2 weeks I've had terrible bloating (I look pregnant), horrible smelling sulfer gas and my stool is green. The stool is formed but soft. I have anywhere from 2-5 BMs per day but most are small. This is normal for me as I eat small meals every 2 or less hours. I am 34, female, not overweight, no medical problems, not taking any meds, live a very healthy lifestyle running outside 15 miles a week, lift weight 3x week, eat a ton of fruit and veggies, cook all my own foods, nothing processed, I even eat fiber pills like candy maybe 5 a day. I also eat fiber gourmet pasta which has 18g fiber per serving, I will eat that 1-2/x per day. Could this be due to too much fiber in my diet??
I have no other symptoms, no fever, no pains, it's not psych related I meditate daily and am pretty relaxed, not stressed much at all. I tested my GI transit time by eating a can of beets and saw them come out exactly 48hrs later.
The bloating seems to get worse as the day progresses. I wake up with a flat stomach but by days end my pants are tight. The green stool has no mucous or blood in it.
I started eating yogert but it does not seem to have an effect yet (been doing this for 2 days now).
Should I go see a GI doctor? Or take some probiotics?
I did take clindamycin about 6 weeks ago for a tooth infection but my bowels returned to normal after that for a few weeks (no bloating or gas, brown stool), now all of the sudden green poo....what gives?
