Irritable bowel syndrome

I had been observing stomach pain,cramps,bloating,gas(flatulence) and constipation symptons for close to 18 months and consulted gastroenterology doctor. Underwent couple of gastro intestinal diagnosis(ultrasound of whole abdomen),blood test,Endoscopy of upper intestine. From the diagnosis doctors didn't find any issues and based on the results of diagnosis and symptoms I had shared with doctor, he mentioned that I had IBS(irritable bowel syndrome) and suggested medication to control symptoms,Took those medicines and didn't observe any improvement as such. Also started restricting foods which have an adverse reaction to IBS like reducing lactose and fructose rich foods,milk and increasing fiber intake Please suggest how I can tackle this situation..

There is no specific treatment of this disease. It can be controlled by altering diet pattern,psychological therapy and medicines. You can take course of antibiotics containing Ofloxacin and Ornidazole twice daily for five days...Consult nearest gastroenterologist they will do the needful.

Hi.... If gas is a problem for you, foods that might make symptoms worse include beans, cabbage, cauliflower and broccoli. Fatty foods also may be a problem for some people..... Eat at regular times. Don't skip meals, and try to eat about the same time each day to help regulate bowel function. ....
