Patient : Hey, my husband is 27 years old and he has really bad excessive flatulence. He farts every other minute and it smells worse than anything I have ever smelled before. It really effects both of our lives as I do not want to sit with him when we have meals or sleep in the same room anymore. Not only I notice it, also other people have mentioned that this can not be normal anymore. Of course the social aspect is important but also there might be a medical issue connected to this whole excessive flatulence thing. It would be great if you could give us an idea what the matter might be and what we can do against it. Thanks, Janina and husband
