Ibs Stomach Cramps
Bit embarassing, people constantly ask if i've farted. I'm always bloated but am 100% certain i haven't. I may have IBS & incur stomach cramps often?
Maybe nothing but...: Being gassy may reflect malabsorption of food (like gluten, lactose), intake of poorly digested food, or choosing foods known to promote gas (beans, fizzy drinks). Sometimes its more complicated--gut emptying too slowly, bacterial overgrowth syndrome, delayed intestinal function, partial obstruction from any cause, infection, rectum problems, ; pelvic pathology outside the gut.

How do I tell if I have a food intolerance or ibs? I get intense stomach cramps 5 minutes into meals and this happens at most meals. I have tried elimination diets and can not pinpoint any triggers. I have limited foods in my diet, but have eaten this way
When i eat my stomach would rumble and would have a lot of wind. Sometimes stomach cramps but only the odd time. Could this be ibs?
Could be but...: You need to get a full work up before your doctor can diagnose you with IBS. It is usually a diagnosis of exclusion when no biological cause can be found for your symptoms.

Hope that helps ...Read more
