Duration of your illness and symptoms are suggestive of Irritable bowel syndrome. IBS is a diagnosis of exclusion as there is no test to confirm you have IBS.As in your case your are symptomatic but all your investigations are normal you are said to have IBS.
what exactly is IBS?
A common disorder affecting the large intestine is the Irritable Bowel Syndrome. Abdominal pain, bloating, gas and diarrhoea are some of the signs and symptoms of IBS. Foods, stress and other diseases can trigger the problem.Anxiety can worsen the problem more by stimulating the nerves.However the exact cause of irritable bowel syndrome is not yet known but studies suggest that a lot of factors play a major role. The intestinal walls are lined with a layer of muscle which contracts and relaxes in a rhythm when they move to your rectum through your intestinal tract. If you acquire irritable bowel syndrome, the contractions can get stronger and last much longer than usual. This causes diarrhea, bloating and gas. Every patient with IBS is different with varying symptoms.
As food is not digested properly there would be muscle wasting.
Consult a Gastroenterologist and discuss about IBS and get treatment started.
By proper treatment symptoms could be controlled very well.
