Hi..the stool test would determine if you have any bad "bugaboos".
Considering you're on the meds and have increased symptoms, it could be something that you picked up.
I get horrific gassssss from oatmeal and salmon believe it or not.
Do you have gas all day or after a certain time? I find that I get gas about
6 hours after eating something that causes it for me..almost right on time in specific areas of my gut.
I think you should call the doc and say you want a stool sample kit and get that sent in to make sure you're not dealing with something else.
Considering school is just around the corner....meaning more stress.

My doc's logic.. "TREAT (FROM)BOTH ENDS" worth it !!!
