I am experiencing severe bloating even after small meals, frequent bowel movements/and or constipation, as well as an uncomfortable full feeling. This has been going on for about 7 weeks now. I have had lab work and a CT scan, but doctor doesn't seem to know what is going on.

Have you seen a gastroenterologist or a GP? Its best to get a diagnosis from a qualified gastroenterologist so he/she can rule out other things. Usually an IBS diagnosis is given only if symptoms persist for more than 6 months .
You may want to see a good gastroenterologist if you haven't done so already.

Thank you for responding. I have only seen my primary care physician at this point.

I think a lot of doctors dont know. I have seen a naturopath, nurse practitioner and later this week I get a full tummy rub, appt. is for 2 hours so lets hope some good comes of this. I am not constipated just a niggly feeling in my lower right side whis is perpetually there. I see (or hear) from myy gp in a couple of weeks, so he might have more suggestions.
But it is so difficult to pin point what actually is the cause - anxiety doesnt help and I am full of that! Good luck!
