I have been diagnosed with IBS by my GP and a Consultant. This was after I became bloated one day and since then it has never gone away.
I was tested for celiac, pylori and general things and all came back fine/negative.
I am bloated 24/7 regardless of if I have eaten or not. From first thing in the morning until I go to bed I am constantly bloated.
I feel no pain or discomfort though which I am grateful for. I have frequently bowel movements and go to the toilet on average 3-4 times a day.
Some foods are not disgusted properly and I see them in the toilet bowl like they haven't been touched. From this I can tell that the food I have eaten only hours ago (possibly 4hours) have already passed through my system
A doctor just said that my intestines is not pushing my food through as quick hence gas builds up...but this contradicts my frequent bowel movements.
People say write down the foods that elevates your symptoms but I find that only one kind of thing i eat will increase bloating and thats oily foods...i.e. olive oil in salads as a dressing, deep fried food like KFC. Apart from this I have not noticed any severe effects from what I eat.
I have tried probiotics, charcoal tablets with no effect. My GP said to try low fodmaps so I am yet to do that. But I don't have much confidence in it considering that I am constantly bloated and it doesn't vary much.
I am at a loss as to what to try next...
Anyone with the same IBS symptoms as myself?
