Not so sure it's IBS

Thanks for the response. Yes, negative for celiac. I have also tested negative for crohns, colitis, thyroid malfunction, autoimmune (ANA panel normal), epstien barr, endocrinology disorders, gallbladder issues, etc. Had a normal colonoscopy, although it had signs of irritation in the intestines, stomach, and esophagus. I had a normal CT scan, normal abdominal ultrasound and normal pill cam. So I'm not sure whether I accept that this is IBS despite the lack of traditional symptoms, or pursue a different diagnoses.

I’m experiencing similar! It started 2 years ago with severe bloating pain and diarrhea. The only test, and it was borderline was SIBO. Small intestine bacteria overgrowth. I did two weeks of xifaxin (spelling) which made me very sick and I lost almost 14 pounds. I would get attacks that felt like gallbladder except I don’t have one. I’ve had every test including fecal mri contrast colonoscopy endoscopy celiac chrones etc. I’ve just completed a complete ObGyn tests and exams. Thank goodness everything is normal but me. I’m sitting here with bloat cramps and exhaustion. I’m on diciclamine and Prilosec gas pills and cholestipol. The Attacks have stopped but I’m still miserable. Gastroenterologist said it’s IBSd. I take Imodium everyday! So what is really wrong with me!
