I have some symptoms of IBS. And the most irritating problem I'm dealing with is intestinal gas. I'm taking medicines but they don't seem working. Neither it is curing IBS nor the gas problem.
I'm taking enough fiber (salad, vegetables, fruits etc.). I don't eat any fast food or something like that. I walk early in the morning, before dinner and light walk after dinner. I do some light exercises/Yoga. Yet, I'm suffering from intestinal gas. Bloating is okay but this gas causes pain in my lower part and I've to go to toilet 2-3 times daily to pass the gas only (most of the times). I can't evacuate at single time.
So I want to find the root cause of this gas problem and want to find solution for it.
I have three queries to ask in my case:
- Does constipation cause intestinal gas?
- Do some food cause gas and then gas cause constipation?
My stools are not like they should be (sometimes liquid, sometimes hard and color varies, and all with gas).
(a) What can be the reason of this? Bad digestion of food or the constipation (caused by gas?)? (b) Is it possible that food is digested properly but gas causes the variations and bad stools?
Two more thing that can help you answer better is that 1st: I think a lot (I don't actually know if it's normal or a lot) about these problems, search many times on internet for solutions. I think like every half an hour about these problems. 2nd: I'm underweight. Everyone calls me skinny. I even think about it many times a day and feel little ashamed and bad. My weight is 57 Kg and I'm aged 24.
Is this thinking is causing all problems and even IBS?
NOTE: I take sufficient sleep. 7-8 hours per day. There are no sleeping disorders.
I hope you understand my problem and you can answer it. I shall be thankful to you.
