    Excessive/Smelly Gas, Frequent Bathroom Usage, and Bloating

    Basically for the past year, I have been passing gas constantly which leads up to me having to go poop every 2-3 hours when I'm awake. My gas is particularly smelly and I have trouble keeping it in in social settings such as school, work, home, etc. I have tried many diet changes such as avoiding foods that are known to cause these occurrences. I do have mild lactose intolerance but it barely affects how my bathroom trips turn out. Nearly 10-15 mins after I go poop, I continue to pass gas until my next bathroom trip which is very hard to do considering there are limited breaks during school and work for me to do so. When I clench my butt, the gas still continues to exit my body unexpectedly especially during unopportune times where people are near me. Overall, I take about 5-6 poops everyday and have to go pee every 2 hours or so. Lastly, I've tried researching different causes and explanations for this pattern but many results have come up such as IBS, celiac disease, lactose intolerance, etc. Can anyone help me find what has been troubling me for so long? Thanks in advance for reading!
