Suggest treatment for IBS

I have found a hardening, lump, on my upper middle abdomen. I have frequent bloating and have fatigue. I have had a history of difficulty swallowing for years and recently it has been better. I was just told that I probably have IBS and MTHFR. I take folic acid, iron, aspirin, probiotics and levo thyroxin daily.

Your symptoms seem to be related to irritable bowel syndrome.

I recommend using daily probiotics.

I also recommend to use a healthy diet and drink a lot of liquids.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Good afternoon I was told back in Aug 2013 that I have Factor 5 Leiden thrombophilia. The doctor put me on Xarelto for 6 months now and has taken me off and to start using aspirin again.
