Hey guys - this all started July 2017 (bout 9 months ago) when I headed for a trip to the UK and Amsterdam for a short holiday. Since coming back, my stomach has been non-stop gurgling and bubbling, I've felt bloated and have been extremely gassy. The bubbling noises are really intense - it sounds like there's something boiling in there. On top of that, bowel movements never feel complete and are very irregular - can happen multiple times a night.
I've had a urine test, blood test, urea breath test and SIBO hydrogen/methane breath tests and it's all come out negative. The results indicate that I'm as healthy as can be but my symptoms tell a completely different story. My doctor was quick to label it as IBS and I've since been told to use Colofac (mebeverine hydrochloride) and Iberogast to limited effectiveness. It all just came on very suddenly and I had no prior symptoms to this. Do I need to get anything retested? Could it be a false negative?
Any advice is appreciated.
