Hi, why not try food elimination to see if something specific is causing it. FODMAP is a list of a lot of foods that cause problems for people. It will take more work on your part to do it but the results would be worth it.

A section of your bowel may be pressing on a nerve. I have bloating and pain in that area, too. My doctor thinks perhaps my problem with the gut might be causing liver inflamation which can also put pressure on a nerve in that area. Another doctor years ago thought my IBS irritations were putting pressure on a nerve causing nerve irritation as far up as burning in my neck when when the IBS kicks in.

I take the same things that you take. I don't always get diarrhea but the bloating and gas is terrible. Pepto Bismo works the best for me. I prefer the liquid but keep that tabs in my handbag. I take Bentyl but not sure if it helps that much. A good nights sleep helps.

I think I only had the packing in for a couple of days. It was uncomfortable but worth it.
