Running out of options

Posted , 8 users are following.

For years i have suffered from bad constipation, severe bloating and gas pains after eating. i have tried every diet i can find. i have been in and out of Penn medicine constantly. I have had 2 colonoscopies, 2 endoscopies, a gastric emptying, a barium swallow, various blood work, multiple CT scans of the abdomen, liver and thyroid. i have also had a barium swallow and the radioactive pill swallow and tracking. I have been treated for SIBO as well. Every single one came back normal. i have no answers. Besides all that, i have tried numerous supplements and herbal remedies from around the internet without any success. I am just hoping to find one person who has tried all of these things and found some type of answer to their bowel issues.
