Hi everyone, first post here, so please be kind.
I'm a sixteen year old male. About a year ago, one day I felt really ill in my stomach. Terrible terrible stomach pain.
While the intensity subsided, I have been somewhat bloated and constipated ever since. I went to see a GI, who took a scan of me.
They found nothing wrong - just an abnormally large amount of stool backed up in my system. The doctor gave me some probiotics which did not help.
The doctor was very lackadaisical about the whole thing. He suggested that it might be IBS. I asked him if, in that case, it would be a lifelong condition, and he dismissively said that in males of my age, IBS is usually self limiting and will go away
Since then, I've been struggling with this gassy feeling. A few months ago, I began farting & burping abnormally to make matters worse.
Does anyone know of a way to reduce this gas?
