This is my first time at this board, and I searched through past topics and didn't quite find what I was looking for, so I'll post this new one.I suffer from what I am almost positive is IBS, although I have never been to the doctor for it (the thought of some of the unpleasant tests to rule out other problems scare me). I have the problems with constipation at some times, diarrhea at others, along with gas. What concerns me most, however, is the bloating. The only time I am not bloated is when I wake up in the morning.I am a college student, 20 years old, so this is not the best time for me to look like a pregnant woman. Wearing tight-fitting shirts is out of the question. My other proble with it is that I am an athlete and work hard to get my body looking and feeling like it is in shape, and my stomach, though I have some good abdominal muscles, looks huge.Has anyone tried any OTC medications for bloating that work? I think I may have tried Phazyme a few years ago, but I didn't take it regularly. Any suggestions at all would be great. Looking pregnant is really starting to wear down my self-esteem.
