What are SIBO symptoms?

Posted , 5 users are following.

I know I could have searched the internet for this. But I just want some answer from my question based on what I am experiencing. I don't experience the bloating at all. But I do get gas and belch all the time.  I get acid reflux and its burning like hell that I feel having hot flashes but I barely have stomach pain. I also get this pain from the left side of my stomach just below the ribs, its like its only a small point on an area of my left side, I hope you get what I mean.I also have gerd, hiatal hernia and gastrits since 10 years ago. This flared up for almost a year now and I lost a lot of weight because of it. It's just recently that I have stumbled upon this SIBO thing because although I get flares from my gerd/gastritis, it just take up to 4 months for me to heal from taking medications, but now it seems I am not so I have searched thorugh maybe I have another stomach illness. I am staying away from food that triggers me and that helps.  I am super underweight but I can't eat a lot so I am staying like this. I am a woman, 170 cm and only weighs 46 kg.

Also, I just want to ask if anybody from the Philippines know where can I get this Hydrogen breath test? I am searching over the internet but I can't find any information.

Thank you! smile
