What could be the reason for frequent dizziness , nausea with bloated stomach ?

I think I have some intestinal issue, but don t know what it is. I am female, 29, 5 8, about 145lbs, diagnosed with IBS 10 years ago. Followed strict wheat and starch free diet for 2 years, eliminated some IBS symptoms, but felt hungry and irritable a lot so came off it.... now have lots of symptoms including: Frequent feelings of nausea and dizziness . VERY pale in the morning (look dead) and feel sick. Bloated stomach, constipation and / or loose stool. Weirdest of all - sweet smelling stool. It smells like biscuits or cakes. I never eat these. No weight loss or vomiting. Occasional palpitations (had ECG - all normal). Any suggestions as to what could be causing this? Thank you very much.

Hi
I will try my best to answer your query.
Irritable bowel syndrome may be a lifelong condition.
The goal of treatment is to relieve symptoms.

Lifestyle changes can help in some cases of IBS. For example, regular exercise and improved sleep habits may reduce anxiety and help relieve bowel symptoms.
Dietary changes can be helpful. However, no specific diet can be recommended for IBS, because the condition differs from one person to another.
The following changes may help:
Avoid foods and drinks that stimulate the intestines (such as caffeine, tea, or colas)
Avoid large meals
Increase fiber in the diet this may improve constipation.
There are many types of supplements for symptom management of IBS that are very effective. In particular:
prebiotic soluble fiber supplements, enteric coated peppermint oil capsules, medicinal strength fennel seed tea, medicinal strength peppermint leaf tea, heat therapy, probiotics, calcium and/or magnesium, digestive enzymes. Alternative therapies, most notable gut-directed hypnotherapy, are clinically proven remedies for relieving IBS symptoms. Hypnotherapy actually offers the potential for a permanent cure.
IBS Treatment through Stress Management
Stress activates the sympathetic nerve plexuses, and stimulates excessive adrenaline production, which in turn upsets the rhythmic muscle contractions of the gut.
These are the options you have, i advice you to see treating doctor and speak with them regarding this.
Hope my answer will be helpful for you.
Take care.
