Hi, this is my first chat.
I have all the usual symptoms of IBS, bloating, constipation, diarrhea; I have different results with the same food on different days. I do not have much pain or cramping however.
My main issue is that when I get bloated my stomach puts pressure on my diaphragm and on my lungs and I get out of breath. I can’t walk 30 ft without having to stop to catch my breath. Forget about stairs, they are impossible .
When I have no IBS symptoms I can jog, run up two stairs at a time and do 90minute work outs at the gym with no problem.
Does anyone else have these symptoms?
I have had my heart and lungs checked and they are normal.
