its funny condition some time reducing dairy products can improve bloating.tretment is symptomatic and dietary modification.if diarrhea ia bad take loperamide and laxative if constipation issue.one can tame meberavine 135 mg tds for spasms .if any heartburn indigestion to try omeprazole 20 mg od .
it doesn't warrant any test presentation sounds very likely of typical ibs .

hi
you are absolutely right this gould be a presentation of of coeliac which is gluten-sensitive enteropathy, though much less prevelant in our race, but given family history can be a possibility.You can arrange blood test like Serum tTG(tissue transglutaminase) ,and total IGA antibodies.Gold standard test is endoscopy and biospy of bowl though only should be done if positive blood.Y ou can give a gluten-free trial if your symptoms completely settle this will support the diagnosis
