My GI Dr. has me taking Simethicone 180 mg twice a day. It really helps. You can buy it OTC, the brand name is GasX. I hope this helps. I know that gas causes pain as well.Hope and prayers.

I have all the same symptoms that you do.

hi very very gassy
I was the complete opposite, I couldn't pass gas and my stomach felt like it was about to explode. Nothing I took would help release the gas. I am now relieved that I can release gas & glad I live alone cause when I feel one coming I let it rip...lol. I did have pain so bad that 1st year of being diagnosed, I went to ER about every other month for morphine. It helped for a few days only. GI told me to take Miralax 2X a day & that has helped relieve the tight exploding stomach, but it's still big & can not wear any of my clothes cause any clothing(pants) that touch stomach makes it hurt so I wear anything that doesn't have a waistband. Wish I could have been helpful. IBS is horrible to have. I had to quit my job & now just stay home. Have not had holidays with siblings in 4 years due to IBS. I'm always uncomfortable & best to just lie down on sofa or sleep allows me some comfort. I'm very depressed & at one time thought dying was the only way but talking to crisis, police & counselor that night I was convinced not to. I was monitored for a few days. God is the one who decides when it time and not Satan. Prayers go out to you. I'm glad I have support from team cause no one understands how we suffer unless you have experience it. Please let me/us know how you are & if you found help from some miracle doctor to cure us all.
