Hi all, I’m new to this site but am already gaining knowledge through people’s posts.
My problem is that I only have a couple of symptoms- extreme bloatedness and awful wind with stomach noises to boot 😂. I would laugh but the bloatedness is v uncomfortable and the stomach noises and wind are embarrassing.
I have cut out potato’s as I think they trigger it. I have reduced broccoli and cauliflower as they seem to trigger it too. Apples seem bad too.
However, I wanted your expert opinions on whether you think this is IBS. It started only 2 yrs ago when I was 40 and came and went every few months but this episode has lasted 6 months I think!! The GP thinks it’s ibs. Can you have bloatedness and no diarrhoea or cramping or constipation in ibs? Do others?
Irritatingly at the same time the ‘ibs’ started I developed irritable bladder!! Double whammy. Do any of you have these combined? I have had treatment for irritable bladder which has helped a little.
Thanks in advance for any responses!
