Hi Copy Right R,
I just wanted to welcome you to Healing Well
and than you for sharing your story.
I think that many people will relate to what you go through. If you have tried all of the commercial gas reliefs (gas X, beano, etc) and you are still having problems, you may want to try the charcoal that is usually right next to it. It can help when the gas is bad. There are many others here that have their own way of dealing with it so hopefully you can get some tips. Beano seems to work well for me, but not so much for others.
You may also want to start a new thread so your post doesn't get overlooked.
If you are having anxiety than it can make your IBS worse. I'm on Klonopin for my anxiety and notice when I'm not so anxious, my whole body feels better.
