I've an almost constant urge to pass stools. Usually a very small amount loose or soft stools, or nothing at all is passed. I also get terrible pain in my upper abdomen after eating anything. Ibs?

IBS: The constant urge school sounds like ibs. The pain in your upper abdomen could be ibs, but I would also wonder if it represents something along the of gastritis or an ulcer. Other possibilities are ulcerative colitis or crohn's disease but you are not passing any blood or mucus so I doubt that the latter two are the case. Please get checked for upper abdominal symptomatology as well. Best wishes. ...Read more

Practically everyone: ...has some food that disagrees with them. Food intolerance is common, variable, & individual. It may even include such innocuous ingestants as water (or, in your case, syrup). Ref: Elaine Shimberg, "Relief From IBS". Assess your threshold--assuming you've experienced no harm from the product, gradually increase exposure to determine the amount of syrup that you can tolerate so not to feel deprived ...Read more

I'd see your doctor if you're having fevers > 3 days, increasing pain, bloody diarrhea, severe nausea or vomiting, or this isn't improving after about a week. Hope you feel better soon! ...Read more

Ongoing3 months, EGD showed chronic gastritis (CG). now constant bloating after eating, gas and stomach discomfort but no cause. Could be Post IBS?

Gastritis: I assume that the gastroenterologist prescribed a regimen for healing of the gastritis, but since symptoms are ongoing has he/she recommended a follow-up egd for evaluation and to determine whether gastritis is still the cause of these persistent symptoms? If there is no longer signs of gastritis perhaps you have lactose or gluten intolerance or gall bladder dysfunction. Discuss this with your MD ...Read more
