Hello all. I'm hoping somebody here can answer my question. I've been having difficulties for the past three months. Irregular bowel movements....change in frequency and consistency. (No problems with diarrhea, though it's looser and ribbon like). Occasionally feel like I have to go and can't or will go three times in as many hours. Biggest annoyance is the bloating and discomfort. The discomfort is typically in the upper abdomen, both right and left side. When bloated, it sometimes feels like I'm not getting enough air to breathe. It's getting pretty frustrating because, it's a daily occurrence with maybe a total of ten OK days during the last three months. Does this sound like IBS?? Thanks in advance for any information you all can give me.
