I have a history of Irritable Bowel Syndrome and have been taking Zelnorm, but recently it stopped working. The doctor told me I might have another problem. Since the stomach pain continues along with bloating, and now, pain in the upper right extending through the back, I had an ultrasound of the upper abdomen, including the liver, gallbladder and pancreas and lab tests recently. I was told nothing is wrong except that I have a fatty liver. Would this cause pain and bloating? I'm overweight and she told me to lose weight. Would this cure my condition?

  • Sometimes bloating, nauseas, gas, foul-smelling stool, etc can be caused by giardiasis (a parasite), but doctors often overlook it. Lots of people pick it up traveling outside the US. Have you ever taken a course of flagyl or furoxone?
