I have no constipation and usually go once or twice a day. My stools are flat and usually are in small pieces. I had a colonoscopy which came up negative.
But every time I eat I get bloated that last for about three or four hours. Doesn’t seem to matter what I eat. It’s the amount that causes the problems. Only time I feel good is in the morning when I have an eaten for eight or nine hours.My Gastroendocrinologist has prescribed Linzess which I’m supposed to start taking this weekend but I am skeptical that I actually have IBS.
Started about four months ago. I’ve had two or three times I’ve had about five days where I felt pretty good but then it’s reverted. Also I’m 63 years old, it’s an IBS supposed to be very rare if it starts when you’re older?
