What is the treatment for Irritable Bowel Syndrome?

So after I drink soda I feel really bloated after about 10 minutes or so. Now the gastro diagnosed me with IBS and has done a endoscopy.Endoscopy was normal so what can be causing this extreme bloating? The bloating is so bad that I can't lay down or anything and it feels like I can't breathe. That is how bloated my stomach gets.
