Detailed Answer:
Dear Sir,

Thank you for posting your query on XXXXXXX

Well looking into your problem you didnt mention any passage pf blood in stools that means the condition is innocent . You may be suffering from condition known as colonoscopy , hydrogen breath test to rule out any pathology

Loperamide, codeine, diphenoxylate etc. can be tried . Ondansetron can also be tried . Avoid lactose containing foods , try to avoid gluten containing products also. Consult a gastroenterologist for expert opinion.

Take care.

Dr. Shruti
