Hi NY have you ever talked to your doctor about a small intestine bacterial overgrowth (SIBO)? The reason I ask is everytime I ate anything I would get really bloated and with alot of gas that just didn't want to pass. Doctor suspected a SIBO and put me on 10 days of Cipro and I have not had any problems since. Just a thought!

Good luck!
