1.1 The fatigue lasts for 1-2 hours after eating a meal or after going for a bowel movement and then gets better.
2. Upset Stomach
3. Bloatedness in Stomach (feel a bit tight - not pain)
4. Pass gas during the day (more than normal)

Your symptoms point to collitis and/or IBS

If there is history of sensation of passing stool after meals and/or mucus in stool you need to take a GI antibiotic and a probiotic for seven to ten days

If not manage your stress levels, reassure yourself and take probiotic twice a day for four to six weeks

Hope this helps
