Hey everyone, so i have recently been diagnosed with IBS after describing my symptoms to my doctor, done a blood test and had an abdominal echography. The problem is, i have constant abdominal discomfort sometimes it goes aways but comes back quicky after, it's not really painful just uncomfortable, as of my bowel mouvements , i do get constipated from time to time.
My problem is, i was reading multiple articles about the benefits of taking probiotics to ease IBS symptoms but then i stumbled upon this one article that talks about SIBO and it basically said that IBS isn't a real thing, it's just a symptom of SIBO and it's really hard to cure it might take years will proper medication, and now i'm stressed, i don't know what to think/ believe, so i have a few questions
-Are probiotics really helpful for IBS?
-Do IBS symtoms get worse with time?
-Have any of you got tested for SIBO and it came out negative? (if you have IBS)
-Is it true that probiotics are bad for SIBO?
-Does it really take over a year to cure SIBO?
-Is IBS really just a symptom?
i'm sorry if i'm asking too many questions i'm just really confused. The reason why i think i have SIBO is that 2 months ago i have been really hangover and kept throwing up a lot and couldn't eat at all, i read that one of the causes of SIBO is change in the stomach pH and alcohol as bad bacteria feed on it.
?I will go back to my doctor soon to get more tests done, i just want to ease my mind in the mean time
