Gas and Irritable Bowel Syndrome

Created On : February 24, 2015

Hello,

my elder brother suffers from a constant attack of gas and this leads to a lot of discomfort for him.. he burps or farts and then he is quite relieved.. can anyone tell me that is this a sign of IBS and if there is any medication in order to control his gas?

Hey, If your brother encounters spinning head or a heart sinking feeling, then it could be IBS..but you can never be so sure if you can go out and get it checked.. Tell your brother not to take tension and not to worry about digestion.. however, you should be getting a second opinion for the same..
