Not clear: We try to make sure there's no inflammation in your bowels with a good history (ie do certain foods or stress provoke your symptoms), testing your stools and if needed an endoscopy. If all is normal, it may be irritable bowel syndrome. See your doc but feel free to consult me if I can be of further help. Hope this helps though!
