Do you now pass more gas like before you had IBS? 4. Do you have the feeling of a bloated tummy?5. Does this bloated feeling get better after BM?6. Do you think you have normal amount of gas, like a healty person has? 7. Do you think the bloated feeling is due wrong perception in the colon that is common in IBS?8. Do you have pain? Does it depend on anything?9. Do you have some isolation issues due bloatings? 10.Do you have a job? 11.

Hi Sarmiento,In answer to your ?s:1. Do you think you have IBS? Yes2. What are your BM habits? Chronic C3. Do you now pass more gas like before you had IBS? No, I have never passed much gas, it gets trapped inside my colon and won't come out, ugh.4. Do you have the feeling of a bloated tummy? Daily d/t gas and C5. Does this bloated feeling get better after BM? Yes6. Do you think you have normal amount of gas, like a healty person has? I think so, but as it doesn't expel properly (like it would for a normal person), it causes bloating and discomfort.7. Do you think the bloated feeling is due wrong perception in the colon that is common in IBS? I don't know.8. Do you have pain? Does it depend on anything? Discomfort from distention, occasional abdominal cramping from C.9. Do you have some isolation issues due bloatings? Absolutely. 10.Do you have a job? Yes.11. Do you have a boyfriend,girlfriend, husband etc? No, thank goodness, I wouldn't want to put anyone else through this.12.Did found something the help you to cope with IBS? (meds, sports, exercises etc.) Daily MOM and Miralax.13. Did you make some diet changes? Did it help you? Tried every diet under the sun, not much help, avoiding high fiber foods helps a little.14. Did you already had some psycho-therapy sessions? Did it help you? Never had psychotherapy.
