Hey thanks everyone for your replies. I have noticed in the past few weeks I tend to blow up when I drink soda, or eat any kind of hearty bread, with grains. I get scared to eat because I hate not being able to fit in my pants afterwards. As far as the candida, I think the nutritionist may have been on to something, but I notice if I eat italian bread or breadsticks, it doesn't bother me. I think I have an allergy to certain types of bread/grains...and a few other things I haven't figure out yet, on top of the IBS. Soda is definitely a killer, that causes alot of gas. So it seems like gas/candida/IBS...everything combined. I am gonna go for another opinion but in the mean time it's hard knowing what I can and can't have. I do notice if I omit hearty bread and soda, I feel better. It is like process of elimination until I find exactly what's wrong. As far as the severe bloating, I heard peppermint tea is good for that...any other recommendations?
