I have had and upper GI serries, nothing showed up. I get a lot of gas and bloating and the bloating and GAS feels like my belly is so full. I noticed it also increases my heart rate. I could not sleep on several ocassions. I have no pain , just an uncomfortable gas bloating. Belching and passing gas does not relieve this. If I get out of bed and walk around for awhile it sometimes gets better. I sometimes am constipated other times I have to rush to the toilet .. No pain , no blood nothing. DOes this sound like Irritable bowell? Thanks

Yep it does and if they do all the tests and find nothing then that's what it is. Have you tried gas-x or something for the gas attacks? Gas is the absloute worst! I get pain when I go to the loo but you don't have to get pain. Alternating diarreah and costipation are also symptoms of IBS. Try cutting out foods like broccoli and beans and see if that helps the gas any. Welcome to the boards and I'm sure if you search around you will find something that helps you feel a little better although it is a big case of trial and error with supplements.

Thanks, Your right the bloating Trapped Gas is really uncomfortable... They have done Sonograms of Liver and Gall Bladder no signs there... Sleepless nights when I get the trapped gas. I seem to have a real bad one after eating Ice Cream the other night,, I guess no more late night Ice Cream for me.
