Unsure if its IBS or some other problem

Unsure if its IBS or some other problem

Hi all,

About 2 months ago I had a severe but short diarrhea attack. It lasted for around 5 hours and it went away. Some weeks later, around 15 days, it reappeared again with some abdominal pain etc. Again, it lasted for a few hours and went away again - but the need to defecate was very strong. On another occasion I felt very constipated and did pencil stools....but no tarry color or blood. Then I went to the doctor and he felt my abdomen and concluded that I am suffering from IBS - he didnt feel any lumps or nodes. This was a month ago....

Some days ago I had diarrhea again - this time instead of abdominal pain I had several belching, felt bloated, and also a bit nauseous. It lasted for only 3 trips to the toilet and it went away. What bothers me is the constant noises coming from my stomach/abdomen and the slight nausea (just as if i am hungry). Also I let a lot of gas and have constant need to defecate - sometimes its just gas! Eating helps a little to ease the nausea but then it comes again.

Important to note that I am not loosing any weight, I have a very open appetite, I don't feel tired, never seen blood in my stools....but I am confused whether this is indeed IBS or some other problem. I ve eliminated all dairy products from my diet and replaced them with soya based products. I ve also but down coffee from my diet and spicy food. I lead a quite sedentary lifestyle because of my work....

Has anyone else experienced this before?

Thanks a lot
