    I have been suffering from chronic diarrhoea since 20 years. In dec 2000, I consumed some indian herbal medicines(1. qurs malthee pasanth 2. jawarish amla sada 3.jawarish mastagi 4. habbe samak 5.indamali)which were advised by hamdard labs. Delhi. After five days, I faced severe diarhhoea which I never faced in my life.Before consuming unani medicines I didn't have serious problems.

    Now, I am having the following problems.

    1. My stomach does not agree wheat products (like chappathi, biscuits etc.), soup,coconut and dairy products, potato fry, fruit juices particularly mango & lemon juices, allopathic medicines, ayurvedic medicines,even homeo medicines. Diarrhoea takes place immediately. 2.Eructation with metallic smell 3. More flatus 4. heart palpitation (after having food and after evacuate the stool) 5. fatigue 6.excessive thirst 7. foul smell in mouth

    Last year, both endoscopy and colonoscopy has been taken for me. But reports are normal. Doctor advise me Mebaspa (mebeverine hydrochloride - 135mg.), Libotryp (Amitriptyline,5 mg chlordiazepoxide hydrochloride and 2.5 mg clidinium bromide), lacto bacillus powder, Omeprazole. But,I am not satisfied the above treatment. While consuming the above medicines my bowel becomes more irritate. loose motion is occcuring. Problems are still remain.

    Some doctors are saying this is IBS but some other doctors are saying this is not classical IBS. Which is correct and what should I have to do?
    Now I read some articles about small intestinal bacterial overgrowth (SIBO). How can find sibo?
