HI MY NAME IS CARMEN AND I HAVE RECENTLY JOINED THIS WEB SITE AFTER READING "PELORICK"'S BLOG AND WAS AMAZED. i HAVE BEEN RECENTLY DIAGNOSED WITH "IBS" AND THAT SAME LIST OF DRUGS HE LISTED i HAVE TAKED THE SAME EXACT THING AND THEN SOME.

ALONG WITH PELORICK'S LIST i HAVE BEEN ON A PROBIOTIC SUPPLEMENT CALLEED ALIGN, I STARTED ON MY OWN ACIDOPILLUS TABLETS, AND ACTIVATED CAHRCOAL CAPSULES FROM GNC, AND DIGESTIVE ADVANTAGE GAS DEFENSE THERAPY FORMULA AT DIFFERENT TIMES . EACH ONE IS THESE I HAVE BEEN TAKING FOR AT LEAST 30 DAYS . AND THE ONLY MINOR RELIEF I GET IS FROM THE CHARO CAPS. MY MAJOR PROBLEM WITH IBS IS CHRONIC BLOATING. I AM ON A PRESCRIPTION STRENGTH MIRALX POWDER FOR MY CONSTIPATION. HAVE HAD MOS TOF THE TEST. IT IS GETTING MORE EXPENSIVE TO KEEP GOIONG BACK AND FORTH TO MY "GI" AS WELL AS BUYING OVER THE COUNTER DRUGS TO HELP EASE MY BLOATING. SOME DAYS I BLOAT OUT SO FAR I LOOK 3 TO 4 MONTHS PREGNANT. IF THERE IS ANYONE OUT THERE THAT CANOFFER ME SOME SUGGESTIONS FOR MY PROBLEM I WELCOME THE COMMENTS.

I had this problem and it was a 7cm cyst in my ovary that caused the severe bloating. Just think you should rule this out as a GI doctor wouldn't think of this problem. I had some lower abdominal pain but no menstrual problems associated with the cyst. Concerning digestive enzymes it is my experience that you need to take quite a few for severe bloating. I have taken BiocorE Pro by NSI from vitacost.com and it worked great. But you may need to play around with different brands depending on whether you need more protease (to digest proteins), amylase (fat) or lipase (dairy). Best wishesDOM
