I finally went to see my doctor after a long time dealing with severe bloating and abdominal cramps.
It started on and off with a stabbing pain in lower right side of abdomen. When I saw the doctor, he said it cant be much more than IBS or Gall stones so prescribed me with mebeverine.
I took the tablet 20 minutes before food as indicated but immediately was doubled over with cramps I have never experienced before and a sudden urge to go to the toilet.
I tried them for 3 days but eventually it got too much so I stopped. I have tried taking them with food and do not get the same cramps but there is jno change to my bloated abdomen or regular pains I was supposed to be being treated for.
I really dont know if it is IBS or something else, especially when IBS medication is making me worse. I have noticed that when I eat anything with wheat in it that my stomach bloats till I look 6 months pregnant. If I avoid wheat for 2 days it eventually goes down. I am not massively over weight but a little and really struggle loosing any. Getting motivated to exercise is difficult as I constantly feel mentally drained after work.
Should I be asking my doctor to look at other possible causes or continue as I am
