Detailed Answer:
Thanks for writing to XXXXXXX

You probably are suffering from condition called as irritable bowel syndrome. Besides this other conditions must be ruled out by proper clinical examination and investigations.
You need few investigations like routine hemogram,LFT,Stool test(routine and culture),ultrasound of abdomen and upper GI endoscopy. Further investigations can be done if needed.

Irritable bowel syndrome is disease associated with large intestine and exact etiology is not known.
There is no specific treatment of this disease. It can be controlled by altering diet pattern,psychological therapy and medicines.

You should take plenty of fibres in your diet in the form of salad etc.
If you have lactose intolerance you should restrict it.
Laxative and antispasmodic can be used.
Low dose tricyclic antidepressants are also useful.
You should do regular exercise and try to reduce stress in your life.
You can take tablet pantoprazole 40 mg once daily before food for one month for gas.

Get well soon.
Hope I have answered your question.
