Agreed. So most definately agree.
So why is it so many docs think we're making this stuff up? And why in the world would we??? And the family - do I have stories, and they're not funny stories.I wish those docs would go to work shining shoes who tell us to go home and eat more yogurt. Gimme a break.

Ditto me too! People who don't have this have NOOOOO idea how excruciating it is to live with this. The embarrassment from symptoms. We need a SIBO awarness day or something because not enough is known about this. I've had almost exact experiences. And again i get the stress of going back to school now. I really thought i would be able to enjoy my senior year and i'm trying but this is always on my mind 24/7 and how can it not be. Noisy bowel and tummy, leaking gas from the end uncontrollably, and cant eat like a normal person. I've been through antibiotic treatment twice. 1st time "cured" me but came back 10 days later. 2nd round of antibiotcs this time twice as long but had no "curing" affect on me whatsoever this time. Follwing currently with probiotics that arent helping. When your SIBO is at it's highest with bacteria you really do feel like you're going to die and i'm tired all the time and get hot flashes or hace freezing hands and feet when nobody else is cold. What's the cure?

Basically it is just eliminating breads, grains, complex carbs, and sugar. . . looks good, but too much dairy for me to eat some of the recipes. I like all the fish and nuts. Actually, that is what I eat now except I do eat four to five servings of fruit per day with some nuts.
All SIBO people! I found this site with foods we can actually eat after searching the internet for a year and a half. It has breakfast, lunch, dinner and dessert ideas. It's http://cavemanfood.b...1_archive.htmlI am so excited to try this! also there's a list of foods/spices you can and cannot have @ http://www.breakingt...illegal_a-c.htm

Sorry I can't help you with a clinic rec, but have you had an upper GI endoscopy (or gastroscopy)? I have had SIBO for a number of years (D, not C), and I'm not sure that constant belching (or "air coming up your throat") is a typical symptom. You may want to rule out other things like H. pylori, etc. Also, false positives are possible with breath tests.
Hello,I have SIBO. I was diagnosed at Cleveland Clinic by hydrogen/methane breath test. I have the constipation variation of SIBO. My symptoms started about 18 month ago when I has put on antibiotics for UTI infections. I developed reflux, gastritis, constipation and severe bloatig int he stomach and lower intestines. Air or gas constantly comes up my throat. I have a hard time passing gas and having BMs. At the Cleveland Clinic I took Rifaximin (Xifaxan)and was put on a low bulk diet. It has not worked to eliminate my symptoms. I need to take another breath test. I live in the Pacific Islands. I am wondering if anyone knows where I can find a hospital or clinic in Hawaii that does the breath test. Thank you.
