I've been belching and passing gas a lot
Hi. I've been bothered by my condition since mid August this year.
I've been belching and passing gas a lot, I notice especially when I wake up in the morning and after a meal. My bowel movements have changed - previously I can pass motion almost Everyday or at least 4 times a week, but for the past few months I only pass motion about twice a week. and my stools have been sticky, slightly darker than usual (but not tarry black) and smellier.
What bothers me the most is that my stomach is Super bloated, especially after eating. It doesn't matter what I eat, it just gets bloated immediately. When I wake up in the morning, my stomach is not as flat as before either. No weight gain.
Initially I thought it was pregnancy, but I've had my regular periods for the past few months (no longer sexually active since) and negative urine and blood tests done at the clinic. Doctor pass it off as IBS but I'm still very worried.
