I have not had a bad IBS flare in a while so maybe I'm due!
For a few months actually, I have had stomach pain in my right side/back area. Sometimes it is in my right lower abdomen. A couple of times the pain was so bad I doubled over and I was suspicious it was my gall bladder. I had an ultrasound which was negative. Typical IBS, making me feel like a hypochondriac. I continue to have pain and out of control bloating and gas. I am not constipated. I have had one episode of D recently but for the most part my stools are normal-soft. Is there any medication for gas relief out there?

I completely understand the notion that IBS makes you feel like a hypochondriac. :(I am not aware of any specific over-the-counter medications for gas; however, one new option is the antibiotic Xifaxan (Rifaximin).You can find some discussion about it by searching on the forums.Jeff
