User :   I have had different types of digestive issues over the last 4-6 weeks. When it all started I had bad cramping and diaherra (sp?) off and on for a few days. That went away (I thought I had a stomach bug or something). Then I went to having abdomenal pain after eating (dinner usuall) and after a week or so I thought maybe I was constipated so i took myralax and started eating more fiber. That took away the pain after eating but now I have indigestion after eating (usually just dinner) and sometimes stomach pain releaved by belching or passing gas. No nausa, vomiting, or loose bowels.
Doctor :   HI,
Doctor :   Let me read your query for few minutes to be able to have a good discussion here.
User :   thank you
Doctor :   May i know where exactly were you getting abdominal pain ?
Doctor :   Are you there ?
User :   I would say mainly in the middle part of my abdomin and a few times I have had a cold sensation in my middle abdomin.
Doctor :   ok,
Doctor :   I would not consider any disease in you , rather it would be the problems created by the treatment of problems
Doctor :   i suggest you to consume soft or liquid diet for 2 to 3 days from now
Doctor :   and let the intestines rest
User :   what would you consider a soft diet.....mashed potatoes, jello things of this nature?
Doctor :   yes,
User :   Do you think after this I can go back to eating normally and have no digestive issues? Sorry but I feel like it has been so long since I actually felt "normal" after eating
Doctor :   yes,
Doctor :   sinec the loosestools the intestines are not being primed to work normally back , and the medicines which will affect the motility and the fiber food add to this
Doctor :   hence consume soft foods so that the intestines are not being loaded with work
Doctor :   so that they function normally
Doctor :   Also have plenty of water
User :   I will try this. If for some reason I have any issues after this what would you recommend?
Doctor :   yes, if then i would advice you to go for Tab GASEX two tabs ones daily for 15 days
Doctor :   Its a product of HIMALAYA
Doctor :   tabs should be taken preferable after food
Doctor :   Are you with me ?
User :   I know exactly the medicine you are speaking of....I have never tried it but will definitely try this if the diet doesn't work.
Doctor :   sure
User :   Is there any other advice you can give me so that I don't go through this ordeal again or is this something that just happens?
Doctor :   its natural phenomenon
Doctor :   i say you need not worry
Doctor :   If stil it doesnt work with the tab too then i would consider visiting a gasteroenterologist would be needed
User :   Ok thank you for all your time and advice...
Doctor :   thanks for consulting me
Doctor :   kindly provide your feedback
User :   I certainly will.....thank you
Doctor :   Bye for now
Doctor :   Take care
