Brief Answer: Infection/ inflammation in Gastrointestinal tract Detailed Answer: Hello, Thanks for your query. The symptoms as mentioned in your post is attributed to either infection or inflammation in the Gastrointestinal tract. Presenting with such symptoms, I usually treat my patients with: 1. Tablet Pantoprazole 20 mg twice daily (to be taken half an hour before food) 2. Anti spasmodics like Dicyclomine preparation twice daily (to be taken after food). 3. Antibiotics like Ofloxacin+Ornidazole preparation twice daily (to be taken after food) And it is also needed that you take certain precautions regarding your diet & lifestyle, such as: 1. Take soft, plain, non-spicy foods 2. Drink lots of water to maintain adequate hydration 3. Avoid fast foods & gas producing food products like cabbage, etc. 4. Avoid smoking & alcohol. 5. Keep away stress, think positive. 6. Exercise regularly & practice meditation. If symptoms still persist, it will be better to consult a Gastroenterologist & get a proper physical examination done to find out the exact cause. Investigations like complete blood count, stool examination, Colonoscopy & Ultrasound scan of abdomen will be helpful in detecting any pathological cause for the symptoms. There is no need to worry, you will be fine. Please let me know if I can clarify further. Wishing a good health. Take care.
