You will have to consult a gastroenterologist for a colonoscopy. This is very important, as IBS is a diagnosis made by excluding other causes. Ask your GP to refer you to a more sympathic gastroenterologist or abdominal surgeon.
I have no suggestions on how to treat your flatulence. Please refer to the following link: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Flatulence
Ask your doctor to consider Cipramil instead of the Venlor XR. This is very good for the treatment of anxiety and can have a lessor effect on your bowel.
