Our expert says:
IBS is a diagnosis you make after you excluded all other possible causes. The most common thing to exlude are parasitic gastro enteritis ( often we pick up parasites like Gardia on lettuce or spinach in restaurants). I suggest that you send a 5 ml sample of stool into the lab for Microscopy, culture and sensitivity to look for germs or parasites. If clean, you should see a gastroenterologist for further examinations to look for inflammatory bowel disease. In the mean time, use Fybogel orange 1 sachet at night and take probiotics 3 times per day.
