User :   Sir, I am passing stools almost 3 to 5 times through out a day since 3 years,
I am 17 years old now,
I have slimmed so much & my current weight is 48kg , height is 171cm
Being a part of my critical life(12th Standard), I cannot tolerate these problems nowadays,
Whenever I eat non-veg , oily foods , this becomes worser,
I have consulted many doctors and almost none worked for more than a week.
I have took the colonoscopy too & the doctor said there was no problem in it too.
Please help me in coming out from this hell
