why is it so difficult to get this test. surely if you have been diagnosed as IBS then this is something that should be done as one of the tests to rule it out. I have been to the doctors three times now. each time i have been given different medication and when i have an outbreak none of them have worked. My latest outbreak has now gone on for at least four weeks and seems to be getting worse not better. The medication is not working and i am cutting foods out and nothing is making a difference. I am now getting really worried i am back to say another doctor next week and i think i will ask about SIBO and ask to be refereed to a specialist as right now i am at the end of my nerve and carnt take much more. I think just the uncertainty and not seeing any light at the end of the tunnel is making me even worse
