foul smelling bowel movements
Recently I have been having horrible smelling bowel movements and gas. The BM consistency looks like pancake batter.....very loose and lots of it. Never a firm stool! I usually have 3-4 bm's each day.This has happened on and off for a couple of years. I am not sick, have lost no weight but my stomach has been bloated like I'm pregnant. What could be causing this? A parasite? IBS?


Any thoughts?

Thank you.

Check with your doc and have him run stool tests for parasites, C. diff, and fat malabsorption. Check to see if any meds you're taking could be contributing to it.
