In brief: R/O IBS With GERD

IBS = irritable bowel syndrome is a diagnosis of exclusion.
WiTH GERDYou need a full exam and blood work. Especial screen for H pylori . Also stool screen x 3 for occult blood /parasite/hpylori . Given age over 50 you also need a baseline colonoscopy. While you are getting these items checked out you should ditch to a gluten free high fiber diet . Ie gutbliss.com and Wholeapproach.com.
