    Hello, all my life I have had issues with IBS with constipation.  I was diagnosed when I was around 20 years old, I am now 45. For about the past year, I have had problems with my digestion. When I eat ANYTHING, it sits at the top of my stomach protruding for hours, very uncomfortable feeling. Especially since I have a fairly thin build, 5'4" @ 120 lbs, size 7. I've also been having problems with my lower intestines (stomach area below the belly button) feeling swollen constantly, to where I have a hard time fitting into my clothes at time. I feel uncomfortable and bloated every day. I also have issues with bloating and gas. I've tried different things like gas-x, digestive health for gas, etc. and don't really get much relief. I have also tried digestive health probiotics, have not felt relief to date. I have had a colonoscopy about 4 years ago, turned up clean. Can you offer any thoughts or suggestions?
