: Hi:)I'm new here and I was wondering if anyone could give me some info?I was diagnosed by a gastroenterologist with IBS in 1989.My main symtoms are:chronic belging and gassiness in my stomach and abdomen.After meals the symtoms of course get worse.I tend more to suffer from constipation than diarrhea,with mucus in my stool.I have read a lot of people's posts here and I was wondering if I have IBS or something I learned about recently called Functional Dyspepsia.My doctor said there wasn't anything he could really do to help me except take Metamucil which only increases my gassy discomfort as well as the belching.If anyone has any info I would greatly appreciate it.Thank you!!!:)

Diane,
I have IBS too, just been diagnosed as the EGD and conolonscopy were all negative for the bad things like crohns and celiac and cancer. I have been taking Citrucel instead of metamucil because it doesn't cause as much gas, but I too am still having gas now and then. I just need to figure out if it is the food causing it, or the fiber. I wish I could help you more, but I still have many questions, doubts and concerns too, like yourself. Read the posts by Harry about fiber. I think perhaps I have not been on fiber long enough to really know the benefit that Harry has felt. Also, the metamucil fiber comes in pills too that cause less gas, but I found they don't work as well.

Good Luck,
Roger
