I am experiencing stomach problems. It feels like a knot in my stomach. I have been taking enzyme, going to bathroom in the morning as normal. But most of the time, I feel like I have to go to the bathroom, and some stool is release and other times nothing comes out. I have been dealing with this for about two weeks. Any suggestions?

Thanks for writing in

The information you have provided is suggestive of collitis

I would suggest you add a probiotic twice a day for seven to ten days

IF this does not respond, go for a stool examination and take antibiotics as per the culture report

Avoid any junk and contaminated foods or drinks in the mean time

Hope this helps
