Re: chronic constipation severe bloating acid reflex and gas pains gallbladder low functioning please advice me

You have a severe case of SIBO (small intestine bacterial overgrowth)

"the amount of pain I am in with my bowels and gas pains"

SIBO causes inflammation in the bowels which increases the sensitivity to pain.
The gas is being produced because the food is being femented in the gut by all the SIBO bacteria.

"I have tried probotics over last 10 years and they would just give me severe gas pains and belching and acid reflex"
"probotics make me worse"
"probotics including fos free make my gut much much worse does not matter what i eat"

Classic SIBO symptom. When you take probiotics and your symptoms get worse, it means you have SIBO, probably an overgrowth of lactobacillus (probably).

" I started to react to eggs "

Egg whites are very difficult to digest. You should avoid them.

"I have bad BODY ODOUR "

You are constipated which means you are not eliminating the waste material which means your body is getting accumulating with all that garbage.

"AND SEVERE THIRST most days despite drinking lots of water"

When food gets fermented in the gut, it draws a lot of water into the intestines. This depletes the water in the body.
Also, since you are under this much stress I am pretty sure that you have adrenal fatigue which again causes dehydration.
Add 1 tsp salt(natural salt), 20-30 grams dextrose and 1 lemon to drinking water. That will help you with dehydration. Also, don't drink too much water at once. Try to drink 1-2 sips of water in 10-15 minutes.

"I also found out my gallbladder is not functioning at 30 percent and constantly dripping bile is there anything I can do to help my digestion"
"I do find fats cause me indigestion and worse acid reflex"

You can try Liver Flush and OX bile enzymes.

"I do try eat healthy its the gas pains and the constipation that are killing me"

Have you tried low fodmap/SCD/GASP diet? That will definitely help.

"I am so constipated my upper stomach is swollen "

You definitely have methane SIBO. The SIBO bacteria are making methane gas which slows down peristalsis and cause constipation.

" probotics of every kind I have tried and they make me worse to do you know why they would make the bowels worse?"

Because you have SIBO. SIBO means an overgrowth of bacteria in the small intestine. The small intestine should have only a limited amount of bacteria. If the bacteria (doesn't matter if they are good bacteria or bad bacteria) start growing beyond that number you will have digestion problems. By taking probiotics you are adding more bacteria to the small intestine which is already overloaded with bacteria. This is worsening your problems.
You have to start with a very low dose of probiotics (something like 1/4 teaspoon of water kefir ) which doesn't make your symptoms worse and build your dose up over time. It might take a few months or even a year before you can drink 100 ml of water kefir or sauerkraut juice.

If you live in the United States you should visit Allison Siebecker or Mark Pimentel, they are world experts on SIBO.

Mark Pimentel has a book "The new IBS solution" in which he writes in detail about SIBO.

Allison Siebecker also does online consulting through Skype. You can find about it on her website. She also lists some other doctors who have taken her course which you can visit or Skype if she is not available. She also gives a lot of tips on SIBO on her website
Also search for youtube videos of her.

Start with low fodmap/scd/gaps diet and take digestive enzymes which contain OX bile. That will help you. Avoid complex carbs because the SIBO bacteria thrive on them.

For more information, search the internet for SIBO articles by chris kresser and mark pimentel.
