In Topic: When I Exhale Through Nose I Smell My Feces?

Hi Firstimemama2014 ,

Nope I couldn't bring myself to watch the video ,

yes fran it does look rather shocking , I am hoping I don't accidentally press the play button ,

it looks way too graphic for me ,

But just looking at the the photo , it does look like a rather extreme case :P

Hi Firsttimemama2014 ,

If they are present , you may be able to see them for yourself in a bright light ,

also good luck for Tuesday

you are very brave to have an endoscopy without any sedation, especially with you being pretty scared

may I ask why your not getting sedation

Hi Firsttimemama2014 ,

I understand you don't have bad breath ,

but because this only happens when you exhale with your mouth closed ,

(no matter where the odour is coming from )

it seems your breath is carrying it up to your nose ,

so if were tonsil stones you wouldn't have to worry about looking any deeper ,

also they can be caused by antibiotics leaving behind small particles of trapped bacteria in the throat ,

sorry for not being clear :) x

Hi , Ftmama , it could be common tonsil stones , it seems to fit what you are describing , perhaps google tonsil stones and see if that could be the problem , because sometimes they can hide in the crypts inside the tonsils , you can buy something to flush them out leaving your breath smelling fresh again :)

Thanks jiggles. I'm currently not eating many veggies (mostly french beans and okra). But I eat apples, bananas, pears, blueberries, and dates all the time. Not sure what I would eat without them, and the thought of giving them up makes me want to go crawl in bed and sleep.

Maybe I should just eat rice for a week and see if I feel better? :(

Hi spirit-walk ,

IrishHeart is right you must Eat , and not just rice , eat everything you can tolerate ( gluten free of course )

When we are trying to gain back our health and strength "Eating" is our number one priority

Unless something you are eating is upsetting your digestive system and is making you sick ,
then elimination diets should be left until we feel stronger and have gained back some body weight ,

and as IrishHeart says it can be different things for everyone ,

for me it's been two years I am getting stronger but feel that I still have more healing to do
I have also gained a little bit of weight now but it took over a year to gain just a couple of pounds ,
and I still eat loads of fruit and veggies ,

I only eliminated those which I felt were the most offending ones ,
which for me were , mangoes , pineapple and strawberries , the veggies weren't so bad , I only cut out soya beans ,
but I will keep trying them over time , as these things can change

like lots of others on here I added an extra slice of meat at each meal which works well ,
you will get there ,
it just takes time for all of us x x
