Ask PoopReport: Does Lying Down Automatically Make Someone Fart?
An anonymous writer has the following question:
I noticed something weird in the past few weeks. I think I'm farting without realizing it.
When I go to bed, I lay in bed for a little bit and read. After half an hour or so, I go to the bathroom and get ready to turn out the lights and go to sleep. But when I walk back in the bedroom it smells like farts. I don't know where the stench is coming from. When I go to bed, the room smells nice. When I leave to go the bathroom, I don't notice any smell. I don't feel farts leaving my butt. It's when I come back into the room that I notice a smell. I even started smelling under the covers to see if I'm Dutch-Ovening myself. Don't think I am.
The only answer coming to mind is that when I lie down and relax, I am farting without realizing it. I don't notice the smell until I have left the room long enough to get used to the smell of another room.
Does anyone else notice this issue? If so, what are your thoughts? I need to get to the bottom of this. Either I have sneaky farts or there is a farting ghost in my room.
