Is there help for poop breath
Are you having any stomach issues?
Yes gurling sounds and pain
My dentist said that bad breath is caused by food stuck between the teeth – as it putrefies and grows bacteria, it smells awful. I brush and floss every night before I go to bed and I never have bad breath or "morning breath". BTW, I also don't get cavities since I started brushing and flossing every night. Peggy
I was just wondering about SIBO since I noticed when I get it (I have gastroparesis) and I have what I call the fart burps normally that’s when I have SIBO along with stomach pains and other issues.
whenever i talk to people i see them scratching their nose or rubbing it, i know i have bad breath but this happens whenever i just finished brushing, and gargling my teeth, and scrubbed my tongue, but i feel that the smell doesn’t come from inside my mouth but from a deeper or from my stomach. Also, whenever i’m inside a car and i yawn or if i talk that people think that there’s feces inside the vehicle. pls pls help! it is embarrasing. thank you

Is there any current discussion on this
HI @docjay1961 that must be so frustrating to have this poor breath. You may have noticed I moved your post to this discussion you started so that all your post will be in one place.
I'd like to tag fellow Connect member @bbjaide to see if they come back to join in on the discussion.
Back to you @docjay1961 have you gotten any suggestions from you doctor or dentist?
I have had an endoscopic, colonoscopy, on meds for gerd, treated for bacterial infection, blood work, nasal surgery, several doctor visits
Yes, i visit the dentist every 3 months, use a water puc, floss,
Still poop breath
How are you handling it
I usually get ahold of my primary doctor and he prescribes me a antibiotic for the SIBO and that usually takes care of it till the next time I get it.
I know they have tests for SIBO but since I am on nexium and Zantac I am more prone to getting it.
My husband has asked me if I’ve farted and I’m like no I just burped. Which gave me a chuckle even though it’s not funny,gotta see humor where I can.
Usually like I think I said I usually get lots of stomach pain and gas and bloating when I have the SIBO.
I too brush my teeth regularly and visit dentist for my checkup and all that.
Thank you so much for this reply I don't think I've been tested for sibo but I'm going to call my doctor tomorrow and set it up
