Welcome to Healing Well :)
Bloating is a real problem for most IBS sufferers. There are quick over the counter products like Gas-X that can really help. Although some don't get relief from it, it does help many. Eating slowly helps ingest less air which could help. Also the foods you choose help as well. There are foods that have more gas than others, these are raw vegatables, beans, chocolate, dairy products, and foods high in carbs. Beans are really good for you but most of the gas comes from how they are cooked. I personally have success with Beano which is another over the counter product that you take before a meal that lessens the gas. Some people also have problems with sorbitol contributing to gas. Of course, not everyone is affected the same way with the same foods so its always good to keep a food diary of what you are eating and how it affects you so you can start identifying the trigger foods for you personally.
I hope this helps a little. Take care and keep posting.
