Welcome to Healing Well :)
Your symptoms do sound familiar as being IBS especially the gas and the loose/soft BM however its best to get a doc to decide this. Unfortunately we can only tell you if it relates to our experiences and if we THINK in our opinions if it sounds like IBS. Of course, tests are the best way to rule this out. Are you seeing blood in your stool or any other signs that would lead you to believe that it may be something else? You may want to try keeping a food diary and maybe you will start identifying certain foods that give you more problems than others. Many have tried this and couldn't believe what they found... originally thinking all food gives them symptoms however most of us have trigger foods. You may want to let your GP know that the meds didn't do anything and maybe she can investigate the IBS theory a little further.
