This is in regards to puppypaws post: I have IBS just 2 weeks ago I started burping up rotten/sour smelling stuff out of my somach, at least 100 times a day, then I started dry heaving and could not eat or even take a sip of water. I was on vacation so I went to the ER and they said that I had a acute IBS attack. They put me on pain meds because of the constant pain in my lower left Quardrant, and many different antibiotics, and liquids. After 4 days in the hospital I went home, still could not eat. The doc said it would take a good two weeks for my IBS to settle down. So after the 2 weeks I started to feel like my old self again so I slowly went back to my normal eating habits. Just 2 days ago I started getting sick with it again, so now I am trying some adidophillus pill to see if that will help me. I am lactose intollerent so I am taking some dairy easy with my pills as I do not want to make my symptoms worse.
I am very bloated, nausiated, painful trapped gas in my intestines so now I am bummed that I am so sick again. I dont use ice in my water any more and I quit chewing gum as they produce gas.
I have to watch everything that I eat so basically I am on water and crackers. So if you have the same symptoms that I have had dont let it go, either go to the hospital or try restricting your diet. I am also on chronic pain meds and that makes it worse.

Hi, maybe your more lucky than you think. I've had IBS since my birth and there was gasy periods while I cannot burp ending up painful enough to faint with big indigestion.
Now I burp voluntarily at least 100 times a day. I do practice also relaxation and breathing techniques. This allows me to feel perfectly pain free. Mayby you must try.
If you wish you can read on my experience in my book Dyspepsia and IBS for the Wise released in Decembre 2011 :
