In brief: Irritable Bowel Synd

There are multiple etiologies that would explain your symptoms, too many to fixate on a single cause.
I would suggest you see a gastroenterologist for a egd. With that said, long term antibiotics can disrupt the normal intestinal flora resulting in a colitis. Consider taking probiotics.

Did you have a ct scan of the abdomen? X rays are generally not nearly as valuable.
This may be a splenic flexure symptom. See a gastroenterologist.
