Hi Savvanah. Your symptoms definitely sound like IBS. In which case I would strongly advise you to try the FODMAP diet. This helps you to determine which foods are causing your symptoms, and which foods you are able to tolerate. Devised at Monash university, Australia, and only recently adopted by NHS, it has so far had a 75% success rate. Ask your G.P. to refer you to a dietician trained in the FODMAP diet. Meanwhile you can research it on line. Good luck to you.
