Is this IBS?
I suffer from excessive gas and have done for many years . It usually begins after eating and can go on for hours only being relieved by a bowel movement. Unfortunately they never feel complete and come out in small soft pieces. I have followed all the usual advice on foods to avoid, eating slowly, avoiding carbonated drinks, taking food and drink separately and am currently taking Bimuno- a daily digestive supplement. Nothing has made a difference. I also suffer from anxiety and am on Venlafaxine which I have tried to unsuccessfully reduce. Does this sound like IBS? Any advice would be welcome as I am now avoiding any events where food and drink will be taken.
