Question: Symptoms Similar to IBS

I have cramps and bloating in the abdomen after eating as well I have excess gas formation and discomfort.
I was wondering if I should try using VSL 3 probiotic to alleviate my symptoms. I have tried Tuzen and I did feel little improvement , but still symptoms do come back.

The first step in properly managing your symptoms is to understand the reason behind them. Once you and your physician have been able to identify the cause then various therapies can be considered. VSL#3 has a role in treating pouchitis, and possibly ulcerative colitis.
