Hi everyone. I'm new to this site having been recently diagnosed with IBS and GERD. Have had lots of test/scans/endoscopy/bloods/poo but thankfully all come back negative (no issues found). Using Gaviscon and Omeprazole to treat the GERD and seems to work quite well. My GP has prescribed Mebeverine for the IBS. I would be interested to hear of your experience/reactions to this drug. Have also made many diet changes but still the persistant abdominal pains , it's wearing me down.
I think my problem is SIBO and related to an increase in bad bacteria due to the reduced acid levels in my gut (an effect of the PPI Omeprazole). Again I would be interested to hear your experiences.
