In brief: R/O IBS

IBS IS SX OF EXCLUSION.
. You need a full exam and blood work. Especially screen for H pylori . Also stool screen x 3 for occult blood /parasite/hpylori . you also need a baseline colonoscopy. While you are getting these items checked out you should stick to a gluten free high fiber diet . Ie gutbliss.com and Wholeapproach.com. Also 64-80oz water

Gallstones may be a cause. Consider a thorough evaluation with a gastroenterology specialist.
