First off I would like to point out that IBS is a genuine issues and there are steps to take to treat IBS. I assume that by tested for gluten allergy you mean you got a blood test (as opposed to an endoscopy). This test can often be wrong and I think it would be a good idea to try eliminating 100% of all gluten from for diet for 2 months to see if that helps. Even if you haven't been able to notice if something you eat is triggering this issue, most people are eating some form of gluten every day so this could be triggering your problem. Also eliminating all lactose from your diet for 2 weeks would be another good thing to try. Good luck.
It just might be the IBS believe it or not I get the same way I have a severe case of it and it actually limits my activities work and my life I get all the symptoms you mentioned they give me meds but it doesn't help im still suffering and have been constipated for the last year I have to take all kinds of alternatives to use the bathroom ***** yes it does but I hope you find something that works for you but I do believe it is the IBS.....good luck
Ahhhh...the fun of trying to NOT eat things with Gluten. Gluten is in SO many things.
This infliction is called Celiac Disease. Many doctors over look this and it's becoming more and more common. If these "ring a bell"...research Celiac Disease and find out the best diet for you. No doctor appointment for a diet change.
Read over the symptoms and see if these sound like what you are experiencing.
Symptoms include but not all inclusive:
The symptoms of celiac disease can vary significantly from person to person. This is part of the reason the diagnosis is frequently delayed. For example, one person may have constipation, a second may have diarrhea, and a third may have no irregularity in stools.
A partial listing of gastrointestinal symptoms:
Abdominal distention, bloating, gas, indigestion
Decreased appetite (may also be increased or unchanged)
Diarrhea, chronic or occasional
Lactose intolerance (common upon diagnosis, usually goes away following treatment)
Nausea and vomiting
Stools that float, are foul smelling, bloody, or “fatty”
Unexplained weight loss (although people can be overweight or of normal weight upon diagnosis)
A partial listing of nonintestinal symptoms:
