hi, my daughter felt bloated alot.maybe not gas so much,don't let the doctors brush off your symptoms though, maybe you have ibs, and there are meds to help control the symtoms. it makes life a little more bearable.i too have been trying to watch what i eat, still haven't really figured out the trigger foods. but i know when my symptoms flair i try to go on kinda of a bland diet.ive been dealing with this for about 2 years now.so good luck, and keep on those doctors.View Thread
hi jaima people can be diagnosed with ibs for constipation too,not just diarrhea. but my daughter had cramping with a cyst on her ovaries, i had to take her to the doctor, they gave her pain meds, and told her the cyst would proably go away on its own. we thought she had ibs because the symtoms were almost the same as mine, and I have been diagnosed with ibs. she was 25 at the time. they perscribed pain meds for her. she seems to be doing better now. so maybe this too will pass for you, so hang in there.View Thread
