A woman has revealed how she had what she thought was a "heart attack" from farting too much after earning a lot of money from selling her wind in jars.

Steph Matto, 31, recently found herself in A&E with symptoms of a "heart attack" when she experienced shooting pains in her chest.

Doctors performed blood tests and an EKG but later told the beauty, from Connecticut, US, that it was caused by excess gas.

The influencer had earned an eye-watering £147,000 ($200,000) from farting in jars before announcing her retirement.

She said: "I thought I was having a stroke and that these were my final moments. I was overdoing it."

It was November last year when Steph began selling her farts after receiving requests on the adult-content site Unfiltrd.

The unique product saw her earn £740 ($1,000) per jar, though Steph offered a 50% discount during the festive period.

To keep up with the demand, which saw her squeeze up to 50 jars worth of farts a week, the "fartrepreneur" had a high-fibre diet.

She'd live off beans and eggs before she began adding protein shakes to make her farts smell worse.

Before her hospital visit, Steph experienced a pain when she asked her friend to take her to A&E.

She detailed: "I didn't tell my doctors about the farting in the jar but I did tell them about my diet."

Steph added: "It was made clear that what I was experiencing wasn't a stroke or heart attack but very intense gas pains.

"I was advised to change my diet and to take a gas suppressant medication, which has effectively ended my business."

During her two-month venture, Steph worked every day to keep up demand as the key to her stinky gas was banana protein shakes.

She admitted: "I decided to do it on a whim after people requested it a few times.

"As luck would have it, once I put the jars up for sale they began to sell like hotcakes."

Despite the financial success, the reception to her unusual business venture has left many divided.

She revealed: "I have a lot of people praising me, calling me a girl boss, telling me that I inspire them.

"But on the other end I have been getting a ton of negativity. I have even received death threats.

"I try my best to not react to these people and give them what they want, which is attention.

"In this day and age, we need to stop tearing people down for their choices."

Someone else added: "Mother of God. I'm done with this world."

Meanwhile one fan defended Steph, as they added: "Just leave her alone and let her make her money. My God!"
