Thank you all, just reading what you guys write in the forum helped me emotionally and sorry for my poor language, I'm not a native English speaker and I wouldn't mind if you correct my grammar mistakes
I haven't been to a doctor, I had many concerns, embarrassment, the colonoscopy and other diagnosis test, and the final result which is there is no cure, you have to find out which food you can tolerate, it is something that everyone does, there is no reason to be ashamed of etc. just thinking of it makes me really mad.
I'm afraid that if I went to a doctor and he said to me you have IBS I'll not be able to handle it, I'm living with this false hope that I'll have my normal life again soon, and it has been almost 6 years of suffering with uncontrollable flatulence all the time, chronic constipation with a sudden urgent need of having a bowel movement, stomach fullness and indigestion.
Actually, just today I decided to have a food restriction, and I should tell you that I'm in love with food . I didn't know what to eat for breakfast, because I always eat eggs, cheese and all the diary products, cornflakes, jam, tomato, cucumber, lettuce. Guess what? I ate 2 slice of brown toast, nothing on it with honey dissolved in a glass of water. For lunch there was béchamel meat pasta, green salad and lentils soup, I told my mother I have my period and she made a hot regular soup, I was starving so I ate biscuits. The same problem occurs around dinner time, I ate 2 slice of brown toast with thyme.
I'm still hungry and I have a minor thalassemia, which gives me a headache sometimes, when I don't eat well.
Do you think I should go to a doctor ? or it seems IBS ?
If I start taking probiotics, fiber tablets on a regular basis, is it enough for the flatulence ?
