I am on metronidazole, which seems to be helping in a number of ways. Had very normal BM the first two mornings after I started treatment for the first time in months. I got carried away in what I ate that 2nd day and I seemed to have taken a slight step back. But, I'm on day 5 now. Since yesterday, I noticed that I could turn and bend easier, even though I don't see a visible change yet. It feels, internally, like swelling is going down. I need to follow the SIBO diet. http://www.siboinfo.com/diet.htmlI'll try to report back in a few days with any changes - good or bad for the benefit of others.
I have SIBO, which was diagnosed via hydrogen breath test. If your doctor really thinks you may have SIBO this test is worth a shot.I've been on rifaximin several times for SIBO and noticed improvement quickly (within 48 hours) in all but one time I took the drug... I think everyone is different though and I had diarrhea SIBO, not constipation, so this may not be helpful for what you're going through.

Call one of these numbers and see if they can find a doctor in your area who understand IBS in the context of SIBO http://www.siboinfo....g-a-doctor.html
In my story I have distension 24/7 just like you but I've been having It since 2008 and sometimes I just feel as time goes by It just gets worse. Doctors have done all type of test on me and everything comes back negative so they don't know what else to do with me . I wish I knew what makes It better but nothing I tried works so lets see If someone could give us both a good advice In this forum , good luck
