Re: Burning Hot Gas...
Because it comes and goes with me I don't think it's anything other than IBS and what I am eating.
As of now, being slightly constipated (I can go, but not fully evacuate) I want to look into fiber suppplements. But I am really confused with what to take that won't add to the gas situation. I have a problem drinking large amounts of water as it makes me nauseous.
I have no problem eating a "Healthy Diet" lots of fruits, whole grains....however it seems to bind me up and I do believe the gas comes from being constipated, even ever so slightly.
This is because on the days I do have a good BM or after I take a laxative and seem to be cleared out a bit better I won't have the gas issues. Few days later, it returns. And my bowels seem to be slowing down.
Does any of this make any sense?
Are there any meds that can help the intestinal gas? I read Simethicone and those alike do not treat intestinal gas.
I was taking charco-caps and just read that one of the ingredients is sulfur? Is this the same sulfur I should be staying away from because it leads to gas? Must not be the same thing...
I am truly at a loss and think life was better when I just had the IBS-D all the time. At least I didn't have to deal witht he gas issues.
I am taking a family vacation in another month and really hope I can get somewhere with all of this.
Any help with the fiber questions I would greatly appreciate.
And I have been to Dr.'s in the past. Had scopes, lactose tests, etc....all pointed to ibs. I haven't been to a Dr. in many years for this as I seem to just put up with it.
Maybe time to go again. But I am dreading the Dr. that just says "Take more fiber" or the one that wants to run 150 different tests......the co-pays can add up so quickly.
