Sounds like IBS, certainly worth following the diet to see if it helps. Do you know if you are worse if you have dairy and gluten ?

Try the FODMAP diet. There is a lot of information on the internet and on this site.

I had that and was advised to cut out dairy. I havd goats milk and cheese instead. Much improved!


Try the low fodmap diet. Also, have a look at this. It's an article discussing food combining, I think it will help you

I would suggest asking your doctor to test you for SIBo and Candida. This could save you a lot of time and pain. More info on this: sickofibs.com/ibs-symptoms/...



Make sure you aren't having veggies like cabbage or broccholi and they contributes to wind and maybe too much fruit.

I could get a medal for my wind - especially first thing in the morning - maybe I swallow air during the night?

When eating try eating slower it may help? Cheers.

ps i read recently that passing wind is healthy - not passing wind at all is not.
