Super embarrassing, I’ve had UC for almost 3 years now and over the past 6-8 months I’ve been having this weird weird gas to where it smells almost chemicallike? The smell is actually staying in my clothes and it only happens right when I wake up and in the late late afternoon before bed. I’m currently taking Lialda and have been since my diagnosis. Does anyone else have this issue? It’s completely embarrassing and I don’t know how to get rid of it. I eat pretty clean as well.. so I’m not sure if it’s my diet but I can’t pinpoint anything that would be doing this.

I get bad gas every day, sometimes it's worse than others. I haven't been able to control the gas but I have started to use flatulence filtering underwear. Not every day, butt if I know I have a meeting at work that day, it just helps me feel a little better, just in case!
